While Kylian Mbappe continues to be linked with Real Madrid and the chances are high that he will sign for Los Blancos, the focus is on Erling Haaland’s future.
As things stand so far, Marca confirms that the Borussia Dortmund striker has not yet decided on his future.
Also, there is no set date when that decision will be made, but BVB wants the Norwegian’s future to be decided as soon as possible, in order to find a replacement in the event of his departure.
Real have identified the 21-year-old as one of the main targets of the upcoming transfer window, but Madrid are aware of how difficult the transfer operation is.
Should Haaland decide to move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, he will have to accept a lower salary than what Manchester City has to offer.
The English club has been looking for strikers for two years and is ready to offer fat sums for his signing.
It is therefore up to the player to decide whether to accept less money and fulfill the dream of playing for Real Madrid, or to accept the fat offer of Citizens.
Meanwhile, other big clubs are competing for Haaland’s services, including Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
