Real Madrid have struck an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over the transfer of Erling Haaland, according to stunning reports.
Haaland has been the subject of intense transfer speculation following his ultra-prolific form at Dortmund.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, among many others, are thought to be keeping tabs on the 21-year-old phenom.
But it appears Real are leading the race to snap up the superstar forward.
That’s according to Siro Lopez who claims the La Liga giants have got an agreement in place with the German club to sign Haaland in 2022.

“Haaland? What I know is there is a pre-agreement between Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Haaland for the player to join Madrid in 2022.”

Of course, Haaland’s release clause will be active by then – which is worth £64 million.
Real’s only major signing this summer has been the acquisition of David Alaba, who joined the Bernabeu outfit on a free transfer.
Further reports suggest Real can pursue a ‘Galactico’ after earning £200 million from sales.
The likes of Raphael Varane and Martin Odegaard have either left the club or are on the verge of departing in big-money deals.
Haaland is Real’s big objective for the summer of 2022, with the club also keen on Kylian Mbappe.
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to Spain.
He’s entered the final year of his contract, with a blockbuster free transfer potentially on the cards next summer if he fails to sign a new contract at Paris Saint-Germain.
Despite the arrival of Lionel Messi, the 22-year-old reportedly wants to leave Paris.
With Real not spending a single penny in transfer fees since 2019, a double swoop of Haaland and Mbappe could be a real possibility.
An attack consisting of Haaland and Mbappe sounds frightening and could lead them back to their glory days.
Will it happen? Watch this space.
