Here’s How Real Madrid Plan To Break The Bank To Sign Both Mbappe And Haaland. Real Madrid can sign Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe in the summer of 2022 while staying within their La Liga salary cap.
Los Blancos have been extensively connected with a free transfer bid for Mbappe, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in June.
PSG is still dedicated to keeping Mbappe in Paris, but the former AS Monaco forward appears to have made his decision. Haaland’s status at Borussia Dortmund is more convoluted, with a €75 million release clause taking effect at the conclusion of 2021/22.
Real Madrid will compete with other European powerhouses for the Norwegian goal machine, but La Liga has assured that a double move will not surpass the club’s salary cap in 2022.
According to Diario AS, Real Madrid’s current pay budget is $528 million, with the potential to increase to €739 million dependent on club earnings. With the club set to offload at least three high-earners in the coming months, an additional €60 million will be trimmed off the bill, with Mbappe’s potential agreement worth €25 million per year.

Real Madrid were willing to spend more than €200 million (£168 million/$220 million) to sign World Cup champion Mbappe in the summer of 2021, but his contract at PSG is now ending, and no transfer price will be necessary to gain his signature if new terms are not agreed in France.
When his first season’s wage and signing bonuses are factored in, Madrid believes Mbappe could be purchased for €120 million (£101 million/$132 million), implying that Haaland might also be sought.
Haaland is said to be open to negotiating with Real and may be purchased in a deal worth around €300 million (£252 million/$330 million) over the course of a five-year contract.
It is crucial to note that the Blancos’ operating costs are currently around €400 million (£336 million/$440 million), but any investment in Mbappe and Haaland would be spread out over long-term contracts, keeping the club well inside La Liga spending limits.
