Real Madrid are said to have the financial strength to sign both Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland next summer. Which is not the scenario the Frenchman dreams of …
They are the two future megastars of world football, the two announced successors of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland, whose performances are regularly compared, have several points in common: they are young, attackers, score a lot of goals.

Haaland plus Mbappé, so it’s a dream that seems possible for Real. But it is not that of the Frenchman. We understood that one of the reasons that would push Mbappé to leave PSG would be the desire to be the No. 1 star in his club, which is not possible when you rub shoulders with Lionel Messi and Neymar. Mbappé would have already warned Real that he did not want to see Haaland arrive at the same time as him, and Tebas’ latest statements will not necessarily please him …
