But they are concerned they will not be able to secure his services in the summer as the arrival of Kylian Mbappe seems imminent.

The Spaniard looks set to take the France international on a free transfer after his contract with Paris Saint Germain expires in the summer.

And the prospect of having to compete with Mbappe and Karim Benzema for a spot in the starting lineup made Haaland wary of moving to the Spanish capital.

That’s according to Goal, who insists the 21-year-old “wants to be a starter wherever he plays”.
