I don't know what fees, commissions and wages will be involved with those players but as I said, three of the main targets in recent memory were Neymar, Pogba and Mbappe. In all those cases, Madrid were beaten for the signings with other clubs making better offers.

So what makes things so different for all those players now?
Josep Pedrerol, Flo's mouthpiece who has a reputation for being extremely well connected with the Real Madrid boss, is already talking about Mbappé's wish to join "only Real" in 2021. The interest in Camavinga is also well documented.

It's not a big leap to imagine that they'll find another 60M € under the sofa cushion for Haaland in 2022.

Would he dream of RM like the South Americans? No he would not. All things being equal, he’d choose England, I’m quite sure. Time will tell, but doesn’t Mbappe see himself the striker?

Ronaldo was also a striker in the second half of his career yet they still had more than enough space and goals for Benzema.

Also are we sure everything else will be equal? Im not saying it's impossible but if Mbappé and Camavinga are indeed Madrid bound the Premiere League teams will have to do a very good job to rival the Blanco's appeal on the pitch. A lot can happen until 2022 but City and especially Liverpool will have several world-class players on the wrong side of 30 by 2022.

A lot can happen until then, but if all things were indeed equal, as a young striker Real Madrid would be very high on my list of possible destinations after I established myself at Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland seems like the ready Lewandowski replacement. I’d bet on Bayern or Man City being his next club when Aguero & Lewandowski move on.

No, we can’t know that. Perhaps I didn’t get my point across very well. I mean as a Norwegian myself I don’t think RM has more pull than the best English teams, or more pull than Bayern Munich for Haaland. It’s not like those SA players who all dream of Barca and RM. So I don’t think it’s as straight forward as you originally made out. It’s a cultural thing in addition to the football. Every Norwegian child speaks passable English, and German is still the most common third language in schools, he’ll have learned the language within a couple of years.

It’s very much an open discussion where he’ll end up next.

I'm not saying it has a higher pull because of an emotional bond. I'm saying it has a higher pull if all things are equal because Real Madrid offers the best environment to dominate another decade of European football if they land these signings.

I might be wrong but from what I've read I think Haaland's dream is to play in the Premier League. Also, knowing Florentino, he will avoid players who have problematic agents and/or require excessive commissions (Raiola, Mendes etc). He seems to be looking for more engaged kind of profiles instead.
