United Still Have Erling Haaland As Top Transfer Target Next Summer 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 1, 2021 12:36 pm

Erling Haaland remains the priority transfer target for Manchester United next summer despite their acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Haaland, who can trigger a release clause in his Borussia Dortmund contract at the end of this season that is reportedly set at €75 million

United will pay an initial €15m for Ronaldo with a further €8m in additional payments over five years, but while the transfer fee is relatively small, the Old Trafford club have had to make the 36-year-old the highest-paid player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer\'s squad by some distance.

United came close to signing the Norway international from FC Salzburg during the 2019-20 winter transfer window, only for the player to opt for a move to Dortmund.
