Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Braut Haaland.
With Les Parisiens widely expected to lose Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer next term, Haaland has been mentioned as a possible replacement for the World Cup winner.
However, PSG would likely be forced to battle with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid for the Norwegian’s signature when his release clause activates in the summer of 2022.
According to El Nacional, PSG are ‘tired’ of pursuing the Dortmund man and are starting to seek out alternative options, with the French giants put off by a move for a Haaland due to the significant commission from a big-money deal that Mino Raiola would pocket.
The report adds that Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic is now PSG’s first choice for an Mbappe replacement, with the Serbia international rejecting the chance to extend his stay with La Viola beyond 2023.
Clubs interested in signing Haaland from Dortmund have supposedly been warned that the former Red Bull Salzburg starlet could end up costing them over £300m for the duration of his stay.
