Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing the signature of Erling Haaland this summer as the Borussia Dortmund forward's future continues to hang in the balance.
The 21-year-old hotshot is one of the most in-demand players in European football, with a release clause set at £67m becoming active this summer, a year before his Dortmund contract expires.
As such, European giants are on red-alert and Spanish outlet AS report that the Norwegian is considering a move to Madrid, but it would have to be this summer.
The report details that Haaland is expected to have a crucial meeting with Borussia Dortmund later this month as both parties look to get his future resolved.
Haaland is believed to be in the process of buying a house in the south of Spain in Marbella, AS report too.
The latest report comes as Manchester City are reportedly keen on signing the Borussia Dortmund striker too, with Madrid's fierce rivals Barcelona also waiting in the wings.
City manager Pep Guardiola is still eager to sign a striker after failing to secure a deal for Tottenham's Harry Kane last summer.
Meanwhile, De Telegraaf reported that last Friday, Jordi Cruyff, Laporta and Mino Raiola met in Monaco to discuss the possibility of bringing him to the Nou Camp.
The player likes the idea of going head-to-head with Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid in a revival of the Messi- Ronaldo rivalry that characterised LaLiga for so long.
Haaland has scored an impressive 23 goals in 20 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund this season, and his record since signing for the club in January 2020 stands at 80 goals in 79 matches.
