​Gerard Pique has urged Erling Haaland NOT to sign for the same team as fellow footballing phenom Kylian Mbappe, explaining why amid intense transfer speculation.

​Haaland has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona ahead of the summer transfer window. 

Real are also keeping tabs on Mbappe, who will be a free agent at the end of the season when his Paris Saint-Germain contract expires.

There has been speculation surrounding a blockbuster Real double swoop for Haaland and Mbappe as they look to snap up a couple of 'Galacticos​'.

But Pique believes the Borussia Dortmund superstar shouldn't join the same side as Mbappe, citing the Ballon d'Or.

Speaking on Twitch via Football Espana, the Barca defender said: "If I were Haaland and I wanted to win the Ballon d’Or, I wouldn’t go to the same team as Mbappe."​

Haaland's name continues to dominate the rumour mill, with both Spanish giants as well as Manchester City and Bayern Munich also thought to be monitoring his contract situation.

​The Norway international expressed his frustration at Dortmund over his deal amid intense interest from Europe’s elite clubs.​

"The last six months I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club has started to press me into making a decision," the 21-year-old told Jan Aage Fjortoft for Viaplay last month. 

"All I want to do is play football. But they press me […] about my future, so that means I have to make a decision soon.”

When asked if he could decide imminently over his future, he added: "That is what they [Dortmund] want. It means things will happen now.

"They have started to put a lot of pressure on me, and I have to accept that […] so now is the time to get things started."
