Real Madrid are reportedly selling some of their players for around £150 million. Madrid are doing this as they are interested in signing Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. The former is also under the radar of their arch-rivals, FC Barcelona.

Both of the players are tipped as future greats in world football and they have attracted some big clubs already. Haaland is not looking happy at his current club as they drop out of the top four in the Bundesliga. However, he would cost around £100 million.

Additionally, Mbappe hasn’t renewed his contract at PSG which expires next year. However, Haaland’s contract will only expire after 3 years but his agent would be keen on getting his client a new club.

Can Real Madrid afford to sign both Haaland and Mbappe?

As per Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Haaland’s agent and father have met the representatives of Barcelona and then, Los Blancos. The 20-year-old striker is in a surreal form at Dortmund scoring 49 goals in as many appearances across all competitions!

The Norwegian international joined The Black and Yellows from RB Salzburg, where he was equally brilliant. However, he looks for a new beginning as top clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly in the race to sign him along with the Spanish giants.

But, in the case of Kylian Mbappe, the deal looks difficult. The 22-year-old forward joined PSG from Monaco for around £180 million! Hence his transfer fee out of PSG would be bigger than that.

The Real Madrid Departures

Currently, as per Daily Mail, main players like Gareth Bale, Martin Odegaard, Brahim Diaz, Luca Jovic, Dani Ceballos, and others are the ones departing. The sum comes to about £150 million and this money could be used for bringing new talent in.

Ceballos and Odegaard were impressive at Arsenal and the London club would be happy with the deal. Jovic is now en route to find his old lost form and has been brilliant so far for Eintracht Frankfurt.
