Erling Haaland will be the most coveted striker in Europe next summer with Manchester United desperate to win the race for his signature. Now, the Red Devils may have the perfect route into putting themselves at the front of the queue.

Borussia Dortmund knew they could have received a large fee this past summer had they made it clear that Haaland was up for sale.

Instead, the German outfit stood firm in wanting to keep Haaland at the club for at least one more year.

Haaland staying at Dortmund into next season though looks increasingly unlikely due to a release clause which can be activated in less than a year.

Reported to be in the region of £65million, that price will make every club in Europe come to the table with an offer.

JUST IN: Cristiano Ronaldo has already dropped hint he could manage Man Utd

The issue for some will be Haaland’s wage demands, along with the agent fees that comes with signing the Norwegian superstar.

United have an embarassment of riches, made evident by their transfer activity this past summer in signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently in a position where they need to offload some of their options in attack.

The United boss is spoilt for choice further up the pitch with Ronaldo and Sancho joined by the likes of Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford among others.


Anthony Martial has now dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford though and it appears he could be set to leave.

Martial’s possible departure though could well give United exactly what they need in trying to sign Haaland next year.

According to 90min, Dortmund are very interested in signing Martial as Haaland’s replacement.

It is claimed the Bundesliga club still deem Martial as a big talent and want to help him rediscover his best form.

United chief John Murtough has seemingly given the green light on Martial leaving, but would want an offer similar to what the club paid Monaco for him six years ago.

That asking price may need to be dropped, but United could hold strong negotiations with Dortmund to discuss Martial and Haaland.
