Real Madrid coach Zidane prepared to wait for Haaland (and BVB pact)

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is prepared to wait for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The Norway international only joined Dortmund in January from Red Bull Salzburg, but is already high on the shopping list of Real.

Zidane is a fan, but AS says he accepts they must wait to sign Haaland.

The striker's contract doesn't carry a buyout clause and instead it's suggested there is an understanding between the player's camp and the BVB board that he can leave for a mutually agreed fee in the summer of 2022.

Interestingly, that is when Karim Benzema's contract with Real expires and it's been suggested Haaland is viewed as a successor for the Frenchman.
