Manchester United plan to move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland during next summer’s transfer window, according to a report.
Borussia Dortmund are believed to have started planning life without the prolific striker, with the 21-year-old expected to leave the Westfalenstadion next summer. Haaland is said to have a £75 million release clause, which becomes active in 2022, and is wanted by the biggest clubs in European football.
According to Bild, the 20-time English champions want to sign Haaland next summer and are prepared to pay the reported €75m (£63.8m) release clause in his contract.
The striker was strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford during his time at Red Bull Salzburg but ultimately left the Austrian outfit for Dortmund in January 2020.
Haaland has scored 70 goals and registered 19 assists in 69 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 13 strikes and four assists in 10 outings during the 2021-22 campaign.
Man United re-signed Cristiano Ronaldo last summer, but Edinson Cavani is expected to leave the club on a free transfer next summer, opening the door for another forward to arrive.
a source also revealed that Dortmund have set their eyes on out-of-favour Manchester United forward Anthony Martial to replace Haaland. However, the Bundesliga club have reportedly set their budget for a Haaland replacement at £25-35m, which could mean they are out-priced in their pursuit of Martial, who is valued at over £40m by United.
