The Borussia Dortmund striker has become the most talked about transfer story since Lionel Messi demanded Barcelona sell him last year.
Manchester United and City, Chelsea and Barcelona are all believed to have the 20-year-old at the top of their transfer wishlist.
But according to AS, it is Real Madrid who have won the race for the free-scoring sensation.
The Spanish newspaper reports that the club’s plan is to ‘bring Erling Haaland to the new Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2022, with the initial focus on ensuring Kylian Mbappe comes in first’.
The PSG forward is another to be linked heavily with a switch to Los Blancos, and the French giants missing out on Champions League glory again could force his hand.
Haaland has told Dortmund that he will stay for at least one more season, with director Sebastian Khel tellling Sky Germany that he is ‘in total agreement’ and ‘identifies completely with the club’.
The Norwegian international as a £65m release clause that will kick in next summer, with many believing his club would look to cash in for over double that this summer.
Rumours of a potential big-money exit were ignited recently when his agent Mino Raiola and father embarked on a tour of Europe and met with several clubs to discuss his future.
But Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told Sport1: “I’ve known Raiola for a long time and get along well with him. It’s no problem for us.
According to recent reports, Manchester United made Haaland their No1 target – but also want to wait until the £65m release clause kicks in.
According to Eurosport, club chiefs including director John Murtough have determined they will go all out to land Haaland.
Haaland is the top scorer in this season’s Champions League with ten goals and has an impressive tally of 37 in 38 matches in all competitions.
