Diario AS report that Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has a preferred option regarding the next step in his career.
Earlier this week Haaland’s representatives, his father, Alf-Inge Haaland and Mino Raiola, flew into Spain to discuss the young forward’s future with both Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Norwegian would opt to join Real Madrid over the other European clubs currently interested, with the player’s father reportedly revealing his son’s preference to Madrid general manager José Ángel Sánchez.
Reports suggest that the Spanish champions will not allow super-agent and Haaland representative Mino Raiola to drag them into a bidding war with Barcelona, Manchester City and Liverpool, the three other clubs hoping to secure the player’s services.
If Dortmund finally do agree to negotiate a figure for the 20-year-old, it would likely require the player to ask for a transfer. Madrid would then make the Bundesliga club an offer, but club president Florentino Pérez is intent on keeping the price as low as possible, according to AS.
