Real Madrid have reportedly reached an initial set of terms with Erling Haaland’s representatives, according to Sport. The deal puts Real Madrid in the driver’s seat to get the Norwegian’s long-term signature in the summer.
Los Blancos flew to Monaco in January to talk about a deal for Aurélien Tchouaméni but also met with Rafael Pimenta, Mino Raiola’s “right-hand man,” and Haaland’s father to talk about the striker.
The agreement between the two parties would help to prevent conversations between Haaland and other clubs from taking place. If the player and his representation agree to the terms of the agreement, Madrid will be forced to pay Dortmund and make a permanent move for Haaland this summer if he chooses to depart.
The current thinking is that Haaland would cost Real 75 million euros, which is his reported release clause this summer, but Real will of course attempt to sweeten the deal by including Luka Jovic in the transfer.
