Over the past two weeks, there have been a plethora of reports regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future at Paris Saint-Germain, and Real Madrid is clearly in the running for the attacker. But there have also been more speculations about Erling Haaland, a star for Manchester City, and Los Blancos would definitely go after the Norwegian if Mbappe decides to stay at PSG.
Reports from Spain are usually quick to point out that Haaland’s options are still open even if he decides not to sign this summer. Recent rumours suggested that, in comparison to Premier League rivals, Haaland’s transfer to Real Madrid would cost closer to €100 million than €200 million.
Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham has reportedly joined the campaign to convince Haaland to make the move, according to Cadena SER. Bellingham has been talking to Haaland about the lifestyle at the Santiago Bernabeu, just as Vinicius has been talking to him on a regular basis about joining Los Blancos. English reports claim that Manchester City is unconcerned with the circumstances and does not fear losing Haaland.
Haaland has a house in Marbella and frequently visits the area during the summer, so he scarcely needs to be sold on Spain. Mbappe is more likely to obstruct the path. Real Madrid appears to be rather certain that the forward from France will finish up at the Bernabeu. Bringing in Haaland will necessitate selling Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior, who are both under long-term contracts and may refuse to leave, once Mbappe arrives.
