Real Madrid Want To Sign Erling Haaland In 2020 And Kylian Mbappe In 2021
Real Madrid are planning an audacious swoop for Erling Haaland this summer followed by Kylian Mbappe in 2021.
Zinedine Zidane has begun rebuilding his side since returning last year and spent big on Eden Hazard last summer.
Spanish publication Marca are now reporting that the Frenchman wants to sign football's two hottest prospects within the next two seasons.
Madrid are aware that it will be tough to do but 'not impossible'.
Norwegian international Haaland only signed for Borussia Dortmund in January but has already set the Bundesliga on fire.
The 19-year-old has scored 12 goals in his first 11 games for the German side and he looks to be the real deal.
His release clause is only £66 million meaning Madrid could swoop in during the summer and seal his signature.
'Los Blancos' signed Luka Jovic last summer but the Serbian has yet to settle at the Bernabeu.
Madrid fans would be delighted with Haaland's arrival but the real main event could come in the shape of Mbappe in 2021.
