Real Madrid are looking for a lethal goal-scorer and have kept close tabs on Erling Haaland. The club plans to sing the Norwegian in the summer of 2022.

Real Madrid are on the lookout for a goal-scoring forward as Karim Benzema continues to carry the burden of finding the back of the net for Los Blancos. The Frenchman has been at his A-Game for the past three seasons and has been the most reliant and efficient forward for Los Blancos.

With 261 goals and 140 assists along with a trophy-laden cabinet for Real Madrid, Benzema has gone down as one of the club’s best-ever signings. However, since Karim is now 33-years-old, it is time for Los Blancos to start looking at other potential signings to replace their phenomenal striker.

One such player is Erling Haaland. The 20-year-old Norwegian has it all and his goal-scoring qualities have taken the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League by a storm. A report from AS states that Real Madrid are keen on landing the former RB Salzburg striker and the player himself has a soft spot towards the Merengues.

Having said that, the plan is to sign Erling Haaland in the summer of 2022. His release clause worth 75 million euros will be activated then and given his quality it is a sheer bargain of a transfer.

Meanwhile, Benzema’s contract is set to run out in the summer of 2022. The report from AS states that the club plans to immediately replace the Frenchman with Dortmund’s goal-scoring machine. A sum of 75 million euros is all that it would cost Los Blancos to sign one of the world’s brightest talents to replace one of the best strikers of this generation.
