In the summer transfer window, Real added the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni to Carlo Ancelotti's team.

But the next two summers could be even bigger with Real hoping to weaken one of their main threats in Europe, Man City.

According to AS, Real want to reignite their interest in Haaland, 22, who has scored 14 goals in 11 games played for the Premier League champions this season.

Haaland has a £161million release clause which is valid for the summer of 2024, the date set by Real to start the transfer operation.

The forward held talks with Real before his move to City, but opted against signing on at the Bernabeu as he did not want to compete with Karim Benzema.

The report also claims Real would like to sign full-back Joao Cancelo.

The 29-year-old has a contract at the Etihad until the summer of 2027.

However, it is believed he could be picked up for a fee between £36-£45m next summer.

Ancelotti knows the player well from when he was managing in the Prem at Everton.

Ferland Mendy would play in Cancelo's position.

But the Frenchman's future at Real is in doubt, despite being contracted until 2025.

Mendy's requests are above what Real are willing to pay, and so any renewal has been put on hold, playing in favour of Cancelo.
