Erling Haaland Dumps Man Utd And Chelsea For Real Madrid

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland wants a Real Madrid move over the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea, according to reports.

The report claims that Haaland's agent Mino Raiola is eager to engineer a summer switch to Los Blancos in line with his client's wishes.  

Dortmund would undoubtedly demand a nine-figure fee this summer if they are to part ways with their star man, a sum that Real could be prepared to pay in order to secure a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema, who will turn 34 in December.  

In contrast, the Red Devils are unlikely to be shelling out huge transfer fees with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set to receive a budget of just £80m before player sales.
