  • Real Madrid are linked to the signing of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe
  • Both players reportedly want a transfer to the 14-time European champions
  • Midfielder, Jude Bellingham is said to be tapping up a former teammate to join

Real Madrid could land one either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland in the summer, with one of their players already tapping up the Manchester City striker.

The Spanish giants have been on Mbappe’s case for some time now, with the player opting to stay at Paris Saint-Germain each time they come calling.

Per Marca, the France international forward will announce his decision to leave the French capital club this morning, with the Santiago Bernabeu believed to be his next destination.

Haaland, on the other hand, has a Real Madrid release clause believed to be in the region of £86 million and will be active from July 2024, per multiple reports in the Spanish media.

Bellingham urges Haaland to join Madrid

Per Diario AS, midfielder, Jude Bellingham has urged the Norwegian striker to make the decision to quit Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and link up with him in Spain.

The two spent two years (2020-2022) playing together in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund before the forward moved in 2022 and the midfielder to Spain a year later.

The England star has been a revelation for Los Blancos in his first season, scoring 14 league goals to join Girona forward, Artem Dovbyk at the top of the scorer’s chart.

Haaland wants Real Madrid move

Sports Brief previously reported on Haaland wanting a Real Madrid move after missing out on The Best FIFA Award to Lionel Messi, despite winning the treble with City.

The Norwegian reportedly believes playing for a club of Madrid’s stature gives him more global visibility and will help him amass votes if he is nominated another time.

Enrique unaware of Mbappe’s decision

Sports Brief also reported on Luis Enrique denying speaking to Mbappe and not being aware of the player's reported decision to announce his PSG departure this month.

There are growing possibilities that the French national team captain will not renew his contract at the club he has been in since 2017 as he looks to seek a move away.
