Brazilian legend Rivaldo believes Haaland could reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid recently eyeing down on the Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland who joined the Bundesliga side from Salzburg in January this year.  However, Brazilian legend Rivaldo believes that the Norwegian star deserves a big-club signing and could also reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Haaland has already made his mark on Bundesliga as he scored 10 goals in the German league in just nine appearances till now. Besides, he already recorded 13 goals for the German club in all competitions. But, Rivaldo now believes that the Norwegian footballer could soon light up the Spanish League.

While talking about Haaland, Rivaldo said, “He is already a great player, but at 19 he could be even better in the future and become one of the best attackers in the world,” and added, “He has a lot of personalities, plays without fear and looks very calm on the pitch, so he is a world-class player that still has a lot to learn and it’s normal that so many clubs are chasing him.”

He said, “Some people are already comparing Haaland’s style to Ronaldo Nazario and there might be some similarities as Haaland, as he’s quick, fearless and scores a lot, but it’s too early to start thinking he will be Ronaldo’s successor.” Rivaldo also added, “Ronaldo won two World Cups and participated in four. He also dazzled the world with his runs and goals, so we need time to see if Haaland can reach Ronaldo’s level. But Haaland does seem to have the qualities to at least get close to my brilliant team-mate.”

Rivaldo also talked about the possible venture of Haland to Real Madrid, and said, “Real Madrid seems to be Haaland’s preferred destination in the summer and he is showing enough quality to prosper in Spanish football. His ruthlessness in front of goal is putting him in a privileged situation and Barcelona could be a good alternative option for him. He will be a great signing for the club that manages to complete his transfer.”

He said, “It will also be outstanding business for Dortmund who signed him for €20 million in January and now may receive almost four times that at the end of season. Perhaps Barcelona and Real Madrid were distracted in January, but no one would have guessed that Haaland would make such an immediate impact at Dortmund.”
