Los Blancos have long admired the 22-year-old and are expected to make a big-money bid for him and Kylian Mbappe in the upcoming season.
For some time, Haaland has been linked with a move away from Dortmund, with a number of big European teams interested in acquiring the talented teenager.

According to the source, the Frenchman is “unwilling” to give up his career and is open to playing abroad. Benzema, on the other hand, would not mind if Real Madrid signed Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain because he is friendly with the Frenchman.
Haaland had stated that he would want to wait until the conclusion of the current season to make a decision on his future, but acknowledged this week that Dortmund was forcing him to make a decision as soon as possible.
“I opted not to say anything for the previous six months out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club is pressuring me to make a choice,” Haaland stated.
“I only want to play football.” However, they press me… about my future, so I’ll have to make a choice soon.”
