Former Spain striker Alvaro Negredo dubs Erling Braut Haaland the perfect fit for Real Madrid, just weeks after he joined Borussia Dortmund.

Former Spain striker Alvaro Negredo has dubbed Erling Braut Haaland the perfect fit for Real Madrid, just weeks after he joined Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland has scored 12 goals in just eight appearances since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg, where he scored 28 goals from 22 matches this season.

Negredo told Marca: "He's a player I've seen a lot and he's spectacular. He can strike with both feet and he's taking advantage of every chance.

"He'll keep growing. He'd be a perfect fit [for Madrid] and he could adapt well with Benzema. Because of Benzema's way of playing, they need someone else. He needs another forward by his side."

The 19-year-old arrived at Dortmund for £16.7m and is already attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

Negredo played for Real Madrid B between 2005 and 2007 and rejoined the club in 2009, before being sold to Sevilla without making an appearance.
