Man United in the battle to sign No.9 Norwegian forward

No sooner has this summer’s transfer window closed and some of Europe’s biggest teams, including Man United, are already preparing their recruitment plans for the next campaign.

It is widely expected that while the likes of Jack Grealish, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo dominated this summer’s transfer window, next year will see Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland own the sporting headlines.

That’s according to a recent report, who claim the Norweigan striker is ready to become the subject of one of Europe’s biggest transfer tug-o-wars. The outlet claim that despite the recent resigning of global superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Man United are the one club already prioritising the signing of Erling.

Borussia Dortmund’s prolific marksman is understood to have a release clause of just £68m which is set to become active next summer and it is almost a given that all the big clubs will be vying for his signature.

Man United will go all out to land the 21-year-old striker with their future transfer plans unaffected by the recent capture of Ronaldo which have seen the Portuguese superstar awarded a bumper salary.

Since joining Borussia Dortmund 18-months ago, Norway international has featured in 64 games, in all tournaments, directly contributing to a whopping 81 goals, along the way.
