But her presence fuelled rumours surrounding a potential transfer.

La Liga giants Real Madrid have held an interest in the striker since his Borussia Dortmund days.

And some reports claim that they are plotting a move for next summer.

Los Blancos had originally planned to go for Kylian Mbappe, but they have now decided against signing the Paris Saint-Germain star.

According to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, club officials deem his salary demands to be too high.

Mbappe almost joined Real Madrid in 2022, but had a last-minute change of heart and instead signed a two-year extension with PSG.

He is now in the final year of his contract having turned down a record-breaking transfer to Al-Hilal this summer.

Haaland is now widely seen as a perfect fit for Real Madrid.

Should he join the Spanish side, he will reunite with former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Jude Bellingham.

However, despite the rumours Haaland’s agent has denied any talks with Los Blancos.

When asked whether or not she has taken part in talks with club president Florentino Perez, she responded: “No, no, no, no.”

Haaland has scored 67 goals and provided 12 assists in 70 appearances since joining Man City last summer.

He has also won the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup and was recently named PFA Player of the Year.
