Real Madrid has started negotiations to sign Norwegian striker Erling Haaland from Manchester City during the upcoming summer, according to Spanish radio station "Cadena SER." The club is said to be employing the same strategy used in the previous deal for Jude Bellingham last season.
Real Madrid's plan involves initiating contact with the player and his representatives, reaching an agreement on desires and contract terms, and then entering official negotiations with the club. It was revealed that Real Madrid made over 10 contacts with Bellingham's representatives in March and April of the previous year, inviting the English star's representatives for a meal at the club's sports city.
Real Madrid then negotiated with Dortmund for the deal after convincing Bellingham and reaching an economic agreement. The same process is said to be happening with Haaland, with contacts being made through Bellingham, and Real Madrid engaging with representatives of the Norwegian star.
It was noted that Haaland has a release clause in his contract with Manchester City, but it decreases over the years. The report concludes by stating that Bellingham and Haaland have spoken a lot this year, and the English player hasn't said anything negative about Real Madrid to his friend.
