According to reports, Real Madrid has reached an agreement to recruit Erling Haaland next summer.
The Norwegian striker was linked with a transfer away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, with Chelsea thought to be among those interested before swooping for Romelu Lukaku, but he eventually stayed put.
Dortmund's valuation of their star player, which is estimated to be over £170 million, certainly put an end to any deal being done during the last transfer window, but that may all change in nine months or so.
According to Diario Madridista (via football.london), Real Madrid and Dortmund have a "verbal agreement" to bring Haaland to the Bernabeu next summer.
Clubs would be wise to wait; after all, the 21-year-old has a £68 million release clause that kicks in at the conclusion of 2021/22.
And that might prove to be an amazing steal for Real - or whomever wins the inevitable race to sign possibly the game's most promising young prospect.
Haaland became the youngest player in Champions League history when he scored 20 goals in Dortmund's Last 16 triumph against Sevilla last season.
He has six goals this season, bringing his total for the Black and Yellows to 63 from 62 games. To be honest, it's all quite scary.
