Erling Haaland has dropped a huge hint over his future plans, according to the latest reports in Spain.
The striker is of course one of the hottest properties in world football right now, with Europe’s biggest clubs – including Manchester United – lining up to try and secure his services.
United have no shortage of competition, with Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona also linked with the Borussia Dortmund superstar, who will no doubt be a prominent name during the January transfer window.
It seems increasingly likely Haaland will move on from Dortmund in the summer, with his release clause of £68m coming into effect at the end of the current season, when he will move into the final year of his contract.
And, according to reports in Spain, the Norwegian has already let slip where he will be playing next season – and it’s not good news for United.
According to AS, Haaland told supporters ‘I will play here in Spain’ while on holiday with his family in Marbella, indicating Real Madrid and Barcelona could well be the frontrunners for his signature.
Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola recently revealed the 21-year-old had purchased a house in Spain, while also suggesting his client could be on the move this summer.
Elsewhere, United could reportedly trigger Julian Alvarez’s buy-out clause in order to land the Argentine star this month.
Alvarez has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, with reports suggesting his agent Fernando Hidalgo could be heading to England in order to speak to the club about a potential deal.
The River Plate forward has 18 goals from 21 appearances in the Argentine Primera Division this season, and has been linked with the likes of Bayern, Inter Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
According to Spanish outlet SPORT though, United could beat their rivals to his signature, with the Reds reportedly willing to trigger the £17m buy-out clause to avoid any negotiations.
