Real Madrid Unwilling To Meet Haaland Demand


Real Madrid are reportedly currently being priced out of a summer move for Erling Braut Haaland.

The Norway international will leave Borussia Dortmund in the upcoming market, when a £67m release clause becomes active, and Los Blancos continue to be strongly linked with his services.

Alongside Manchester City, Carlo Ancelotti‘s side are believed to be at the head of the queue for the 21-year-old, who has scored 80 goals and registered 21 assists in 82 appearances for BVB in all competitions.

However, according to Marca, Real Madrid’s attempts to sign the Norwegian have been dealt a blow, with Haaland’s demands pricing him out of a switch to Bernabeu.

The report claims that super-agent Mino Raiola is demanding a wage packet of €30m (£25.3m) net per season, which the La Liga leaders are not prepared to pay despite being desperate to sign the forward.

Haaland’s fitness problems have also alerted Real Madrid, with the club wary of paying that amount to a player who has already suffered 14 separate injuries during his career.

Ancelotti’s side are expected to complete a move for Kylian Mbappe in the coming weeks, with the France international set to leave Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer
