Erling Haaland will reportedly snub Real Madrid if they try and sign Kylian Mbappe first.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been linked with a switch next summer, with a number of clubs interested in landing the prolific striker.

Haaland will be available for just £66m owing to a release clause in his contract, and Los Blancos are expected to make a bid for the 21-year-old.

But according to Marca, Haaland will turn down an offer from the LaLiga giants if they sign Mbappe first as he does not wish to play second fiddle to the Paris Saint-Germain star.

The Frenchman was subject to a £177m bid from Madrid this summer which was turned down by PSG, but Carlo Ancelotti's side are expected to return for the player in the summer.

The report adds that Haaland would prefer being the main man at another club instead of sharing the spotlight with Mbappe. Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Manchester City have all linked with a move for Haaland, and will attempt to convince the 21-year-old to move to England over Spain.

Haaland says Mbappe gave him 'free motivation'. He told Norwegian broadcaster Viaplay: "It was good to score goals.

"I love the Champions League and when I saw Mbappe score the hat-trick yesterday I got free motivation, so thanks to him. He scored some nice goals and I got a good boost from him."
