Real Madrid plot £292m package to sign Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe
Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a massive financial package worth £292m as they look to sign both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
The LaLiga giants have been long-term admirers of the pair and are eager to sign them ahead of the 2022-23 season.
According to Marca, the Los Blancos are preparing a package deal that will cover each player's transfer fee, wages, and agents' commission.
Barcelona held talks with Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, last month, while Borussia Dortmund confirmed that Real Madrid are one of the clubs interested in signing the 22-year-old.
Meanwhile, Mbappe has yet to commit his future to Paris Saint-Germain, and looks to be on his way out of the club at the end of the current campaign. Madrid would not have to pay a transfer fee to sign the Frenchman in the summer, leaving them with plenty of spare finances to offer both players a hefty wage and sign-on package.
Haaland previously claimed he would make a decision about his future once the season ends, but revealed last week that Dortmund are pressuring him to make his plans clear as soon as possible. He said: "They have started to put a lot of pressure on me and I have to accept that. I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for the club and the fans.
'But now that a lot of pressure is coming from the club, so it is the time to get things started. It means things will happen now. I have said from the beginning I want to focus on football, because that's when I am at my best. Not when other things come into my mind."
Asked when he expected to come to a decision, the Norwegian replied: "Not now because we're in the middle of a difficult period with a lot of games. All I want to do is to play football, but I can't do that now."
