Real Madrid have reportedly been given a lifeline in their quest to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, the Bundesliga side are asking for three Los Blancos players in case they want to buy the Norwegian hitman for free next summer.

Real Madrid have long expressed their interest in the former Salzburg man. The capital side would be willing to break the bank for one of football's next bona fide superstars. The striker's contract reportedly has a buyout clause valued at €75 million that becomes active in the summer.

However, as per the report, an alternative could see Real sign the 21-year-old without even having to pay the €75 million release clause with three of their players heading in the opposite direction. The three players being reportedly demanded are Luka Jovic, Miguel Gutierrez and Eduardo Camavinga.

The three players have varying degress of importance at the Santiago Bernabeu and it is unknown if the Real Madrid hierarchy will consider this offer.

However, their quest for Haaland is seemingly strong, with the club keen to latch on to the two certain future Ballon d'Or winners in Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

A deal for the Frenchman to move to the Spanish capital is most likely to happen, especially since Mbappe has publicly stated his desire to move.

Will Real Madrid agree to sell three players in exchange for Erling Haaland?

Jovic has been on Dortmund's radar since his time at Eintracht Frankfurt and could do with a return to Germany after a torrid spell in the Spanish capital. The 24-year-old Serb has only featured in 11 La Liga games for Madrid this season, scoring a solitary goal. He came in as a substitute in all those 11 appearances.

Miguel Gutierrez is a 20-year-old left-back who has come through the Real Madrid ranks and big things are expected of him as the long-term heir to Marcelo. It is unknown if Florentino Perez will sanction his transfer away from the club, considering his huge potential.

Dortmund are looking at repeating Achraf Hakimi's transformation with Gutierrez which is very possible considering their track record.

The Morocco international arrived at Signal Iduna Park as an untested youngster with potential. He has, however, gone on to become one of the best right-backs in the world, thanks to foundations laid in Germany.

Eduardo Camavinga's exit from the Spanish capital is also less straightforward. Perez sanctioned the 19-year-old's high-profile purchase from Rennes only last summer and the France international is seen as a key part of the club's future plans.

He is seen as a long-term option in the middle of the park as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric slowly approach the nadir of their spectacular careers. Camavinga has already racked up 21 appearances for Madrid across competitions since he joined.

Of the three players being reportedly demanded, only Luka Jovic's exit seems straightforward and it remains to be seen whether this is an option that Los Blancos will pursue.
