According to Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland wants to sign for Real Madrid amidst interest from a plethora of top European clubs.

Haaland completed a €20m transfer to Borussia Dortmund from Austrian outfit RB Salzburg in January 2020 as one of the fastest-rising teenage sensations in world football.

The Norwegian international took the Bundesliga by storm in his first season, scoring 13 goals and registering two assists in 15 games.

His exquisite performances have caught the eye of several European heavyweights, including Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

With interest high in his services, reports now claim the 20-year-old favors a move to La Liga champions Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are one of many clubs in the race for the in-demand striker as they aim for a squad overhaul in the summer.

Zinedine Zidane is looking to add firepower to his attack, as Madrid have been over-reliant on veteran striker Karim Benzema.

This season, the Frenchman has scored 17 goals and provided six assists in 28 La Liga matches for Real Madrid, contributing almost 50% of their league goals.

The Galacticos have been heavily linked with the Borussia Dortmund ace and also Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe as they look to strengthen their attacking unit.

However, Real Madrid still face competition for Erling Haaland's signature, with reports claiming Manchester City have already contacted his representatives.
