Real Madrid are working hard to get their transfers in order for next season already. They’ve already been talking to Kylian Mbappe, and it is expected that the Frenchman will move to Real next summer on a free transfer.

There are also reports about them leading the race for Erling Haaland. For the Norwegian, the competition is tougher and there are a lot more clubs involved, but at the end of the day, it’s probably going to be either Manchester City or Real Madrid that get him.

According to a report from AS, Haaland has already made up his mind. It says that he wants to join Real Madrid next season, he’s said yes to the club.

Real Madrid have the resources to make the Haaland transfer happen next summer, per report

The report mentions that Real Madrid are in pole position to make the transfer happen this summer, even though they’d prefer it to happen in 2023.

There was an agreement in place with Dortmund that would allow Haaland to earn the same salary at Dortmund that he’d earn at Madrid, for one season. But, I think that the player has made it clear that he wants to move now and will not wait around for another season.

If that is the case, then Real Madrid, according to the report, are in a good position to sign him. Whether they actually do end up signing Haaland is another conversation, since the contract is not signed yet. Anything can happen, but Real’s chances of landing both him and Mbappe have never looked likelier.

For now, getting both Mbappe and Haaland is much more important than getting other role players

I’ve seen so many people talk about how Real Madrid need to adhere to other positions as well, and not just the attack next summer. Why?

Are you telling me that signing role players next season along with a superstar is more important than signing two other-worldly talents in one summer? Absolutely not!

Real Madrid have future transfer windows to make all the other stuff happen. They have academy players or even current players that could take up those roles, but a chance to sign two once-in-a-generation talents in one summer almost never comes around, and Real Madrid will do everything they can to get them, as they should. I think this tweet sums it up pretty well.

Yes, the rotation in the attack would be an issue… for now. It’ll go away once Benzema takes a backseat. The problem is not big enough for Real Madrid to not go for a guy like Haaland when they’re already going for Mbappe.
