Man City’s Haaland chances improving
Manchester City are increasingly likely to sign Erling Haaland this summer, especially if Kylian Mbappe moves to Real Madrid.
City have been leading the race to sign Haaland this year and their most serious competition has been from Real Madrid.
But Real Madrid’s priority this summer is to sign Mbappe as a free agent when his Paris Saint-Germain contract runs out.
PSG are willing to do whatever it takes to convince Mbappe to sign a new contract, but he still has his heart set on moving to Madrid even though some people close to him have advised him to stay in Paris.
If Mbappe leaves it will make it even more likely that PSG will sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
Haaland’s €75m release clause means Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing him this summer and their No. 1 target for a replacement is Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi.
