According to Diario AS, Real Madrid’s pursuit of Erling Haaland has just got a little more complicated as Manchester City have entered the race to sign the Norwegian star, who’s expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window.
Haaland is available for a fixed fee, but it’s a verbal rather than a written agreement.
Mino Raiola, his agent, spoke with both Real Madrid and Barcelona last April, although it’s thought that the Camp Nou side's financial situation could prevent them from the pursuit.
It’s the Premier League giants that are thought to be biggest threat to Madrid’s ambition.
Los Blancos can afford the Norwegian – even if they also sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain – due to careful financial planning, but they’ll struggle if they get into a bidding war with someone with the financial might of the Etihad side.
The Spanish capital's hope is to persuade Erling Haaland that the sporting prestige he’ll receive at the Santiago Bernabeu outweighs any financial gain he might earn elsewhere. It’s the same argument they’ve been deploying with Kylian Mbappe.
Paris Saint-Germain will enter the race for the star striker should they lose Kylian Mbappe, to complicate matters even worse.
