Real Madrid appears to be looking at Plan B with the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga this time. The Spanish giants are linked to possible alternatives if they don’t land the Frenchman.
Of all the alternatives that Los Blancos could make a move for should they fail again in the Mbappé pursuit, one is Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.
According to Spanish media outlet Diario AS, Real Madrid is considering signing Haaland because of concerns about whether Mbappé will leave PSG to join them.

Furthermore, a journalist for the same platform cites two reasons Real Madrid’s pursuit of the 25-year-old will fail. The first is club president Florentino Pérez’s desire to pull out the stops to land the player. Then there’s the whole salary concern.
