Real Madrid and Manchester United have similar actualities, as they don’t find their best form in their respective countries and continental tournaments. Even though Madrid currently rank second on the La Liga standing, they are struggling in the current season, which has prompted the front office to start looking for new additions.

These two Euro giants are reportedly interested in the same targets to boost their attacks. They’re ready to make a big push in the transfer market and are targeting both Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland, according to the Daily Mail.

Sancho has been marvelous for Borussia Dortmund ever since he joined the German side from Manchester City as a youngster. Dortmund paid £8million in 2017 for him and he has seen his stock rise to a £100m-plus player. On the other hand, Haaland has been one of the biggest surprises of the season with Red Bull Salzburg, scoring 19 goals across 16 games in all competitions.

Last season was terrific for Sancho, who enchanted everybody in Germany and abroad, netting 12 goals and leading the Bundesliga with 14 assists. He has broken into the England team and continued his good form this season with three goals in the opening seven league games. As for Haaland, he landed in Salzburg in January 2019, becoming one of the most promising and sought-after strikers in Europe right now.

He has been great in the Austrian Bundesliga and Champions League, with several teams interested in his services. His current contract runs until the summer of 2023, but nobody sees him finishing his current deal at Salzburg if he continues to perform to such a high standard.

These two sides need good additions, and these guys could help change their current situations and compete for important things.
