Paris Saint-Germain are lining up an extraordinary last-gasp move for Erling Haaland to replace Real Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe is on the cusp of clinching his dream move to the Spanish giants, prompting PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino to turn to Haaland at Borussia Dortmund.
According to The Telegraph, the French giants are preparing to bid £150m for the Norway forward.
Haaland has been pursued by Europe’s elite across the summer transfer window with Champions League holders Chelsea and Manchester United both heading up the chase but he has seemed content to stay in Germany.
Yet the prospect of lining up alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar could prove too good to turn down for the 21-year-old.
Haaland is represented by super agent Mino Raiola, who PSG have contacted over the prospect of a late move in the window that closes on August 31.
Dortmund have been steadfast in insisting Haaland is going nowhere this year and the prospect of losing their star man with little time to replace him will be a discomforting thought.
Yet Haaland has a £64m release clause in his deal that kicks in next summer, which means Dortmund could not claim anything like the £150m transfer fee that is being mooted for him here.
From a financial sense, a PSG bid is worth being considered by the Germans.
