Erling Haaland scored a brace to help Borussia Dortmund seal a 3-2 victory over Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 tie on Wednesday.
The exciting striker is on the radar of the top European clubs and the transfer report increases every time he impresses in the Europe’s elite competition.
Manchester United were keen on signing the 20-year-old before he moved to Germany, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are still chasing the free scoring striker.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the Red Devils are the ‘interested side’, and have joined Manchester City and Real Madrid in the transfer chase. The three clubs ‘will start the auction’ in the summer.
Haaland, who was a dream target for Juventus in the past, is now the ‘main goal’ for Real Madrid.
Having arrived at Borussia Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, the Norway international has been in scintillating form.
After impressing in the second half of the last campaign, the attacker continues to shine for BVB this season, scoring 25 goals in all competitions, out of which eight have come in five Champions League appearances.
Calciomercato points out the player’s €75m release clause that is set to be come into effect in 2022.
However, with his ‘rapid growth’ attracting interest from Manchester United and other clubs, these suitors are set to start the auction in the summer, and his stay at Dortmund becomes difficult beyond this season.
The Bundesliga side are having financial difficulties and Haaland’s sale in the next window can help them fill their ‘coffers like never before’.
