Real Madrid is reportedly ‘nervous’ about potentially signing Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland in this summer’s transfer window.
The Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund forwards are both top targets for Florentino Perez over at the Bernabeu. Yet they’re beginning to fear missing out on the duo.
Real Madrid had a quiet summer transfer window in 2021. With Perez opting to save money amid his interest in Haaland and Mbappe, Los Blancos only landed the likes of Eduardo Camavinga and David Alaba.
This summer, however, Real Madrid plans to rock the footballing world by signing both Haaland and Mbappe.
Mbappe has been wanted ever since his time at Monaco and, at present, his PSG contract is due to expire in the summer.
Haaland, meanwhile, will be available for around £66million due to a clause in his contract over at the Westfalenstadion.
Recent reports suggested Real was confident of landing the pair.
Yet Catalan publication Sport say Los Blancos are beginning to get ‘nervous’ over the duo.
Regarding Mbappe, the France international has been able to sign a pre-contract agreement with the La Liga titans ever since January 1.
However, that the 23-year-old is yet to put pen to paper on any deal means Real fear he could end up staying at PSG.
The Ligue 1 titans are desperate to keep hold of their talisman. And Mbappe recently indicated he wanted to become PSG’s all-time leading scorer, with the 2018 World Cup winner currently 44 goals behind Edinson Cavani.
Regarding Haaland, Real fear missing out on the Norway international to a team with a strong sporting project to offer.
Manchester City is a rival, with Pep Guardiola still on the lookout for a world-class No 9 to replace Sergio Aguero.
Manchester United has also been linked, though the Red Devils may struggle to attract Haaland if they fail to win the Champions League.
