Real Madrid are preparing a package of 350 million euros (£ 292m) for signing Erling Haaland in the summer.
Haaland is one of the most sought-after players in world football, with a number of top clubs looking to sign him in the summer when his release clause – believed to be around € 75m (£ 62.6m) – was announced.
The real look is in good shape after a reduction in their spending on the last few transfer windows and Marca has now given us an indication of how much Norwegian might cost.
In total, the Haaland project is likely to return Real € € 350m. The figure consists of the clause of the aforementioned release, his payment over a long-term contract, and the fee for services rendered by actor Mino Raiola.
It represents a major investment but indications are that Haaland will justify spending. The 21-year-old has scored 78 goals in 81 appearances since joining Borussia Dortmund in January 2020, with 28 assists.
This season is considered to be the most played. He has managed 15 strikes and 10 assistants in 10 league games this season and still has plenty of time to get even better.
Real Madrid not only want Haaland, but Los Blancos are also preparing for the blockbuster swoop of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe’s contract expires at the end of the season and despite recent reports suggesting he may sign a temporary extension, he is likely to go on a free transfer this summer.
Real are close to signing a player before the start of the season, but PSG withdrew their bid to reap one more season from production.
Mbappe himself was determined to go, and it looks like he will find his wish through the next summer exchange window.
