Real Madrid will reportedly only turn to Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland if their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe fails.
The Spanish giants are believed to be planning an overhaul of their squad next summer after a year of relative inactivity in the transfer window.
Haaland and Mbappe have previously been linked as part of a double swoop, but Marca suggests that it will be one or the other arriving at the Bernabeu.
France international Mbappe is said to be Zinedine Zidane's top target, though he has two years to run on his contract and PSG will not sell on the cheap.
Should Madrid fail to agree terms with the Ligue 1 champions, it is claimed that they will look to trigger Haaland's release clause, thought to be a reasonable £63m.
