Real Madrid have “no interest” in signing Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, according to Marca.
Rumours of there being a release clause in the Norwegian’s contract prompted discussion about the forward potentially joining the La Liga champions.
However, their plans for Haaland had reportedly got in the way of recruiting Palmeiras’s teenage sensation Endrick, who is thought to have made it clear that he wouldn’t make the switch to Bernabeu if the City forward was also going to join sometime in the future.
Subsequent reports have suggested that the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain had moved ahead of Real in the battle for the Brazilian youngster’s signature.
Marca‘s latest story, though, now appears to claim that Real have dropped their interest in Haaland entirely, with their aim to devote their resources to snapping up Endrick instead. The 16-year-old has a €60m (£52m) release clause which Palmeiras want clubs to pay in full.
