Real Madrid is still in talks with Borussia Dortmund over signing striker Erling Haaland.
The Madrid club considers the 20-year-old Norwegian’s relocation not only a priority but also crucial, considering Haaland’s potential to dominate football in the coming decade. Real Madrid believes they have no right to pass up a player of this caliber.
According to As, a settlement is likely to be reached this summer. The transfer could cost €270 million, including the €150 million transfer fee and Erling’s six-year salary.
Borussia had no intention of selling Haaland before 2022, but given the current crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a sale could be contemplated.
The positive relationship between the two clubs’ leaders also points to a potential merger. If all parties agree on everything, Real Madrid is likely to be able to divide the payments over several years.
In 19 games in the German Bundesliga this season, the striker has scored 19 goals and added four assists.
