Real Madrid has emerged as the favorites to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Haaland is expected to leave Dortmund at the end of the season due to a €75 million release clause becoming active in his contract at the Bundesliga club this summer.

Manchester United, who had interest in Haaland, are ready to shift to other attacking options.

Real Madrid would like to sign booth Haaland and Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Sources said that although the Haaland camp are admirers of the work done by United interim manager Ralf Rangnick at previous clubs, the prospect of signing for United while they remain in a period of transition, and potentially out of the Champions League, has made the 20-time English champions an unappealing proposition considering the other teams in the race to sign Haaland.
