PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN will move to sign Erling Haaland if Kylian Mbappe leaves the Parc des Princes next summer, according to reports.
France international Mbappe informed the PSG brass last month that he wants to join Spanish giants Real Madrid.
PSG rejected £130m and £200million bids from Real for the World Cup winner, who they risk losing on a free transfer at the end of the season.
And the Parisians have reportedly identified Borussia Dortmund hitman Haaland as a replacement for the 22-year-old.
That's according to Spanish newspaper AS, who claim PSG are beginning to plan for the possibility of life without Mbappe.
The prolific Haaland – who has scored a staggering 63 goals in just 64 appearances for Dortmund – has three years left on his contract with the Bundesliga outfit.
PSG wouldn't, however, have to break the bank to sign the Norway international.
It's understood the 21-year-old – the son of former Leeds United and Manchester City ace Alfe-Inge – has a £65million release clause.
