Real Madrid are already plotting a future swoop for Erling Haaland just days after his arrival at Manchester City, according to reports.
They faced stiff competition from the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona for his signature, but the prospect of working under Pep Guardiola in the Premier League was too good for Haaland to turn down.
However, Real Madrid have not given up in their pursuit for the striker just yet.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Los Blancos are prepared to trigger an alleged £130m release clause in 2024.
Haaland is said to have requested the clause to be put in his contract as he is still keen to play for the LaLiga giants at some point in his career.
Previous reports have suggested that Man City are expecting him to move to Spain in future.
The idea was even discussed during initial talks between the club and the player’s representatives.
Real Madrid were once confident that they would be able to sign Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, however, they missed out on both players.
The Frenchman signed a lucrative contract with the Parisians worth a staggering £500m.
The deal will see him stay at the club until 2025.
