That’s according to Spanish outlet ABC, who claims Carlo Ancelotti’s side are deadset on Mbappe but won’t hesitate to pursue Haaland if Paris-Saint Germain refuse to offload their young French World Cup winner.

Haaland’s situation at Borussia Dortmund is incredibly unique.

Currently on a collision course to become one of the world’s best players, the Norweigan marksman has a release clause, rumoured to be around £68m, but it does not become active until the summer of 2022.

In the meantime, the striker is likely to remain in Germany with many clubs resigned to accepting a bidding war will be initiated next summer.

However, one club that could make their move earlier than the rest is understood to be La Liga giants Real Madrid.

With Paris-Saint Germain seemingly taking a hard stance when it comes to the possibility of selling Mbappe, last season’s La Liga runner-ups may be forced to go all out to land superstar striker Haaland.
