Kylian Mbappé or Erling Haaland: Real Madrid will make a top transfer this summer
Because Real Madrid has not invested any money in new signings in the past two transfer periods, there is speculation about a transfer offensive in the coming summer. The Spanish journalist Josep Pedrerol from El Chiringuito TV has learned that Kylian Mbappé or Erling Haaland should definitely be signed.
Barcelona may be in a financial position to move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland at the end of the season, according to presidential candidate Joan Laporta.
Haaland's stock continues to rise following Wednesday's double for Dortmund in their 3-2 Champions League last-16 first-leg win over Sevilla.
That made the Norway international the quickest player to reach double figures for goals in the competition for a single club, doing so in just seven matches - three games fewer than Roy Makaay for Bayern Munich between 2003 and 2004.
