FOOTBALL: Real Madrid make an ambitious move to double-sign Erling Haaland and Joao Cancelo

Real Madrid are reportedly looking to sign two Manchester City stars in an ambitious double transfer

Real Madrid are report­ed­ly look­ing to sign two Man­ches­ter City stars in an ambi­tious dou­ble transfer.

The Span­ish and Euro­pean cham­pi­ons are look­ing to strength­en an already strong squad.

Real Madrid brought in Anto­nio Rudi­ger and Aure­lien Tchoua­meni under Car­lo Ancelot­ti this summer.

But the next two sum­mers could be even big­ger as Real look to under­mine Man City, one of Europe’s main threats.

Accord­ing to AS, Real are keen to rekin­dle inter­est in the 22-year-old, who has scored 14 goals in 11 appear­ances as the Pre­mier League cham­pi­ons this season.

Haa­land has a £161m release clause that runs until sum­mer 2024, the trans­fer start date set by Real.

The strik­er, who had been in talks with Real before mov­ing to City, chose to avoid com­pet­ing with Karim Ben­ze­ma and opt­ed to sign at the Bernabéu.

Real also report­ed­ly want to sign full-back Joao Cancelo.

The 29-year-old is under con­tract with the Eti­had until the sum­mer of 2027.

How­ev­er, he is said to be avail­able for a trans­fer fee of between €40m and €51m next summer.

Ancelot­ti has known the play­er well since his days as man­ag­er at Ever­ton in the Pre­mier League.

Can­cel­lo’s posi­tion will be filled by Fer­land Mendy.

But despite being under con­tract until 2025, the French­man’s future at Real is in question.

Mendy’s demands are more than Real have to pay, so his con­tract renew­al has been put on hold, in favor of Cancelo.
