It was recently reported that Real Madrid are prioritizing the signing of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé over Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Braut Haaland, and while this priority order hasn’t changed, Real apparently have Haaland as part of their long-term planning as well.
According to Diario AS, Los Blancos are in an “advantageous” position to sign both of the talented youngsters, and if the circumstances are right, they can link up in the Spanish capital when the renovation of the Santiago Bernabéu is completed in 2022.

The report claims that Mbappé, whose PSG contract expires in 2022 and who’s refused all contract extension offers, wants to join Real, and that his current valuation is between €150m to €180m.
Meanwhile, Dortmund are adamant on keeping hold of Haaland for at least another year, but that could change should they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season, and if the 20-year-old thus pushes for a move.
Haaland and Mbappé are two players who will dominate world football in the years to come. Chelsea would do well to convince at least one of them from going to Real.
PSG director Leonardo to Sky Italy: "Neymar and Mbappé’s future? It’s not the moment to make announcements... we want to keep our stars and go on with this group. Pochettino arrived few months ago, the project has just started". #PSG— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 4, 2021
Meanwhile, Torino Granata are reporting that AS Roma have dropped out of the race to sign Torino’s Andrea Belotti, with new Roma manager, José Mourinho not prioritizing a move for the 27-year-old. West Ham are now said to be in the driver’s seat, with Belotti seen as a cheaper alternative to Tammy Abraham.
