Barcelona and Real Madrid can’t afford Erling Braut Haaland’s salary demands

Barcelona and Real Madrid have reportedly been excluded from a transfer for Erling Braut Haaland following salary claims from the Borussia Dortmund striker.

The La Liga giants both had talks with 22-year-old representative Mino Raiola and father Alf-Inge recently on a summer move.

However, Goal claim that Erling Haaland’s annual salary of € 35m (£ 30m) could force Barcelona and Real Madrid to look elsewhere for another striker.

A similar report suggests that an anonymous English club recently dropped out of early negotiations when it became clear how much the Norway international was hoping to win.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have recently been connected with former leaders RB Leipzig.

Haaland has 35 goals to his name this season, but he’s been on a seven-game drought without one for club or country since scoring twice against FC Koln on March 20.
