Real Madrid could land Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland next summer as they look to reassert their dominance on Europe. The duo are currently regarded as two of the best strikers in world football.
Los Blancos have been linked with both players for months and could take the pair to the Bernabeu Stadium in time for the start of the 2022/23 campaign.
“They tell me from the highest environments of Real Madrid that Mbappe is done, but they are going to go for Kylian and for Haaland,” said transfer guru Eduardo Inda.
“Real Madrid is going to try to go for the two players. Also I think Haaland is done. His clause is €75million for next summer.”
Real haven’t won the Champions League since defeating Liverpool in the final in 2018.
That was their third consecutive European trophy as they proved an imperious force during Zinedine Zidane’s first spell in charge.

The club have only won one La Liga title in the last four years and the addition of Mbappe and Haaland could catapult the team into world-beaters once again.
Mbappe is coming to the end of his contract at Paris Saint-Germain and Madrid will be free to negotiate a deal with him in the new year.
Haaland, meanwhile, is contracted to Borussia Dortmund until 2024 – but his apparent release clause will mean Real can sign him for much less than his market value.
Both players are set to demand huge salaries if they are to make the move to Spain.

Recent reports suggest that Mbappe rejected a massive £38m-a-year offer from PSG, which would have made him a higher earner than team-mates Neymar and Lionel Messi.
Meanwhile, Haaland could set Real back around £50m-a-year as a salary, according to Diario Madridista.
But the club could be willing to pay the big salaries if Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo all leave the Spanish capital when their contracts come to an end next summer.
Mbappe recently discussed his PSG future amid the continued speculation.
“I have spent five extraordinary years here,” Mbappe told Brazilian TV. “I have taken advantage of every moment and I continue to do so. I am happy both on the pitch and in my personal life.
“Now there are many things, great challenges and I have already spoken about that.”
Haaland has continued to keep tight-lipped about his future but looks set to depart Dortmund at the end of the campaign.
That would cap two-and-a-half years at the club, and the striker is unlikely to be willing to spend another season in Germany.
