Real Madrid To Offer Up To Seven Players For Erling Haaland
Real Madrid are ready to offer any one of seven players to Borussia Dortmund in an attempt to bring down the price for Erling Haaland, according to reports in Spain.
Haaland's incredible start to the season earned him a move to Dortmund in January, with the Bundesliga side fighting off RB Leipzig and Manchester United for the striker.
The Norwegian has continued his form in Germany and has already racked up 10 goals in the German top tier since his move in the winter window and now he's attracting interest once again.
According to Diario Madridista, Real want to sign the 19-year-old sensation and are ready to offer one of seven players as part of the deal. Oscar Rodriguez, Dani Ceballos, Alvaro Odriozola, Brahim Diaz, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano Diaz and Takefusa Kubo could all be used in any deal.
Whilst those might not be the most steller names that Los Blancos have within their ranks, or even high profile players like James Rodriguez who the club clearly want to sell, the players do all fall in Dortmund's usual area of expertise, young talented players they can improve.
Oscar, Ceballos, Odriozola and Kubo are all currently on loan from the club with none of their current sides having the option to buy at the end of the season.
Right back Odriozola, currently with Dortmund's rivals Bayern Munich, could be of particular interest to the German side considering Achraf Hakimi is set to return to the Bernabeu this summer when his two year loan spell with Lucian Favre's side ends.

Dortmund are unlikely to want to sell their latest star having only just signed him, though they have been known to sell players for a huge profit, and Real and any other interested party may have to wait another two years.
The former Red Bull Salzburg striker has a €75 million release clause but that reportedly doesn't activate until summer 2022, by which point Haaland will just be turning 22.
If his progress continues the way it is though someone may be willing to spend a lot more than that earlier just so they can get a jump on everyone else for his signature.
Already in this delayed season the striker has bagged 10 or more goals in three competitions with 16 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga, 10 in the Champions League and 10 more in Germany already.
In the coming years there may be no more wanted a player as Haaland, Real may have to try a lot harder than offering up seven players they don't really want.
