An absolutely incredible transfer window may yet see another huge twist, amid reports that PSG could look to sign Erling Haaland to replace Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe Madrid bound?
This news of course comes on the back of reports that Kylian Mbappe is primed for a move to Real Madrid.
News broke on Tuesday evening that Real had tabled a bid of €160m for the forward.
That offer is understood to have been rejected. However, a deal for Mbappe now looks close.
Marca would report on Thursday evening that the 22-year-old’s move to the Bernabeu is imminent, after Real offered up €170m plus an extra €10m in add-ons.

PSG eyeing Haaland
And now, as mentioned above, PSG appear to be attempting to replace Mbappe with Erling Haaland.
The information comes courtesy of the Telegraph, who report that PSG are readying a last-minute swoop for Haaland, having sounded out the forward’s agent, Mino Raiola, over whether or not he could be prised away from Borussia Dortmund with only a few days of the transfer window remaining.
It was suggested earlier in the summer that a fee of around £150m could tempt BVB into selling the Norwegian this year.
However, rumours surrounding a Haaland exit had died down somewhat of late, amid the expectation that he would simply leave Dortmund next summer when the youngster’s release clause of around £64m becomes active.
But could we now see Haaland instead link up with Lionel Messi and Neymar in Paris?
