Mbappe is said to be Madrid’s number one priority this summer while Martinez is being eyed up in Catalonia. Both have also been linked with Haaland, but the strongest potential to do a deal seems to be emanating from England and the Premier League.
City already have a connection with Haaland. His father, Alf-Inge, played for the club for three years and Haaland has been pictured wearing their shirt as a child. They’re best-placed, but Chelsea are also said to be very interested.
Haaland is comfortable at Dortmund but open to making a big move in the summer of 2021. Their asking price is thought to be a good deal over £100m even thought there’s talk that a release clause of just €75m comes alive in summer 2022.
Haaland is prolific. He’s scored 82 goals in the elite since his debut in 2017 and this season has recorded 17 goals and three assists in just 14 games for the German club.
