Erling Haaland has been told to snub Real Madrid.

McManaman doesn’t think the Norwegian, who is one of the hottest attacking properties in the world football scene, should rush into signing for one of Europe’s elite clubs just yet.

Former England forward Steve McManaman has warned Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland not to join Real Madrid in this summer.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid star believes the Norway frontman would be making a mistake if he signed for Los Blancos at this point of his career.

Haaland, who became the first teenager ever to score in five consecutive Champions League matches, started life in the Bundesliga in flying colours since joining Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in the January transfer window, scoring nine goals in eight league appearances.

McManaman said in his column for HorseRacing.Net: “It’s too soon for him to leave Borussia Dortmund. He seems to be happy and more importantly he’s playing regularly and scoring goals'

“He should stay, he should play and he should get a couple of more years under his belt.

“He should move when he’s a more experienced player after playing 200 or so games for Dortmund and playing 20 to 30 games in the Champions League, which he should do.

“He can’t just go and jump ship and go to Real Madrid. You’ve seen what’s happened to Luka Jovic this season, he’s hardly kicked a ball for Real Madrid after having a wonderful season last year in Germany.

“Haaland doesn’t need that pressure. On top of that, I’ve heard that Real Madrid are interested in Kylian Mbappe instead, so both of them don’t need to be there at the same time.”
