Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has claimed that Erling Haaland would fit in perfectly at Real Madrid alongside Kylian Mbappe despite interest from a number of other European giants.

Haaland is one of the hottest properties in football today, along with Mbappe, and the pair have been linked with a move away from their respective clubs for a while. The upcoming summer transfer window could see the duo switch over to a new club, and Matthaus believes Haaland “would fit” Real Madrid.

“Haaland may end up at Bayern after (Robert) Lewandowski,” Matthäus said to Marca. “But not alongside him. “Haaland would fit in better at Real Madrid with (Kylian) Mbappe.”

The Los Blancos would have to offload a number of players in order to afford to both Haaland and Mbappe, and veterans like Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale, and Isco have touted to leave the club in the summer.

Elsewhere, Glen Johnson has called for Liverpool to sign Haaland. “I’d love to see Haaland and Bellingham at Liverpool,” Johnson said.

“They are two young guys who are built for the Premier League and for a club like Liverpool. They could develop over the years under a manager like Jurgen Klopp. I could see them becoming massive names in football for a long, long time.

“There’ll be competition from other clubs across Europe for sure. But I think it’d be appealing to come to Anfield, challenge for trophies and work under a top class manager like Klopp."
