Real Madrid want to sign second Manchester City player after 'top target' Erling Haaland, it's his dream move

Real Madrid want to sign second Manchester City player after 'top target' Erling Haaland, it's his dream move

The Brazilian confessed his dream was to play for Real Madrid and that he admired Cristiano Ronaldo.

Erling Haaland is one of two Manchester City players on Florentino Perez's star-studded transfer list at Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The Norwegian forward, who penned a five-year deal with Premier League champions Manchester City in 2022, continues to be linked with a big-money move to the Bernabeu.

In fact, Spanish publication AS suggest he could be available to non-English clubs for just £86 million this summer as a result of a two-tiered release clause.

Haaland's entourage have already started preliminary negotiations with Los Blancos, according to Mundo Deportivo, who say talks are going "wonderfully".

Rafaela Pimenta, Haaland's agent, commented on speculation, saying: "I think it is not necessary to say that Erling does what he wants. It is not true. Erling is always going to do what is good for him and for his club, Manchester City."

She added: "When everyone is willing to make a change, it will be done."

As well as the prolific striker and another top transfer target, Kylian Mbappe, Madrid are said to be interested in bringing Manchester City full-back Yan Couto to the Spanish capital.

Couto, who joined La Liga leaders Girona for a third loan spell in July, has been a standout performer for Michel's side this season, notching two goals and six assists in 23 appearances.

His form for Los Blanquivermells has earned the 21-year-old defender a call-up to the Brazil squad, where he featured in World Cup qualification matches against Venezuela and Uruguay.

And the highly-rated Couto, who joined City from Coritiba in 2020 for £5.5 million, is being tracked by Real Madrid, according to Marca.

The Spanish outlet says he 'fits the profile of a position to be reinforced’ as Dani Carvajal enters the prime years of his career. They also claim his level is 'spectacular'.

“The reports that are in the club in relation to the Brazilian are positive, but at the moment it has not gone beyond the phase of gathering information," the newspaper adds.

Real Madrid are also believed to be following Lille defender Leny Yoro and Antonio Silva from Benfica. Sporting CP's Goncalo Inacio is mentioned, too.
