Erling Haaland Makes Real Madrid ‘Decision’ After Losing Best FIFA Award to Lionel Messi
- Lionel Messi won the Best FIFA Award ahead of Erling Haaland
- It's the second award the Argentine will win ahead of the striker
- Haaland has reportedly made a key decision following the sun
Erling Haaland lost the second award to Lionel Messi in the same year under review after the Argentina captain won the Best FIFA Award, and this has prompted a decision from the forward.
Messi won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, amongst other honours, while Haaland was at the forefront of Manchester City’s historic treble in 2023.
After lifting the Mundial in Qatar, the Inter Miami star has won the 2022 and 2023 FIFA Bests while also beating the Premier League striker to the Ballon d'Or.
Per Daily Star, the 2023 FIFA Awards is where fans drew the line, claiming the Norwegian star was robbed as Messi already won the 2022 edition for his exploits in Qatar.

Haaland makes key decision after award snub
The two players were tied on points, but it went in the favour of the former Barcelona star after winning the most votes from captains of the national teams, which served as the tiebreaker.
Per AS, the Spanish giants have a release clause of £86 million on the former Borussia Dortmund striker, which will become active in the 2024 summer transfer window.
Despite denial by all parties involved, he would cost more if any of Manchester City’s Premier League rivals wanted to sign last season's league's Golden Boot winner.
Los Blancos are reportedly eyeing one of Haaland or Kylian Mbappe to bolster their attack.
