Real Madrid continues to work on the acquisition of striker Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. The Madrid club sees the transfer of the 20-year-old Norwegian not only as a priority but also key given that Haaland could dominate football in the next decade.
Real Madrid believes they have no right to miss out on such a player. A deal is likely to happen in the summer, reports As. The transfer could cost €270m, taking into account the transfer fee of €150m, as well as Erling’s six-year salary.
Borussia did not plan to sell Haaland before 2022, but with the crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic, a transfer could be considered. The good relationship between the leaders of the two clubs also speaks in favor of a possible move.
Real Madrid is likely to be able to split the payments over several years if the sides agree on everything.
This season, the striker has scored 19 goals and made 4 assists in 19 games in the German Bundesliga.
