Real Madrid can reportedly compete with Chelsea for the transfer of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian international is currently one of Europe’s deadly attacking players and scored a remarkable 41 goals in 41 matches in all competitions last season.
It’s easy to see why Chelsea and Madrid are now ready for him, with Angelo Mangiante giving an update on the situation in his tweet below …
Real Madrid are in the running for the top clubs that want Haaland and are willing to wait for him next year as well.

Although Chelsea fans would surely love to see Haaland move to Stamford Bridge, but their plan B is not so bad either, with Mangiante claiming Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku would be their second choice to get ahead.
The Belgian international has shone in the Premier League in the past and has also shown some of the finest form of his career at Inter.
Chelsea would no doubt be stronger with either Haaland or Lukaku in their squad, with Thomas Tuchel needing a more productive player up front following the inconsistent form of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.
