Guardiola has been without a prolific centre-forward since Aguero, who recently retired from football due to a heart problem, was released at the end of last season.

It’s thought Real have been working on a deal to sign Haaland for the last six months and plan on pairing him with Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.

“It’s impossible to make signings like Mbappe and Haaland, in general, not just for Real Madrid, without the Super League.
