Barcelona and Real Madrid have reportedly been priced out of a move for Erling Braut Haaland because of the Borussia Dortmund striker's wage demands.
The La Liga giants both held talks with the Norway international's agent Mino Raiola and father Alf-Inge earlier this month over a summer transfer.
However, Goal claims that Haaland's €35m a year (£30m) salary could force Barca and Madrid to look elsewhere for a new striker.
The same report suggests that an unnamed English club recently walked away from early negotiations when it became apparent how much the 20-year-old expects to earn.
Haaland has 35 goals to his name this season, but he is on a seven-game drought without one for club or country since scoring twice against FC Koln on March 20.
