Manchester United’s search for a top striker continues and once again the name of Erling Haaland is in the focus.
The Red Devils wanted to hire his services in the January transfer window of 2020, however, the Norwegian international snubbed the Old Trafford out and agreed a contract worth £130,000-a-week to move to Borussia Dortmund (The Daily Mail).
As per the latest repots going on in the media, Solskjaer would look to finally lure him when the transfer window opens.
According to Calcio Mercato, in the summer, Man Utd will start he auction to secure the signing of the 20-year-old striker, who is also on the radar of Manchester City and Real Madrid.
The Italian outlet have mentioned that Haaland’s current contract has a release clause of 75 million euros which will come into effect in the summer of 2022. However, he has been too strong this term and Dortmund will find it hard to keep him at the club for next season.
So far, in all competitions, the former RB Salzburg star has made 24 appearances for the German club, scored 25 goals and also provided 2 assists.
Two days back, he scored a brace in the Champions League fixture against Sevilla. He has netted 18 goals in 13 appearances in the Europe’s elite competition and in the current campaign, he is leading the goal-scorer in the tournament with 8 goals.
The Golden Boy award winner is one of the best strikers in the world and Man Utd may have to break their transfer record to secure his signing. Back in December 2020, Mundo Deportivo revealed that Haaland’s market value is at around 155 million euros.
