Manchester United are ‘ready to pay’ the €75million release clause in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland’s contract in an attempt to lure him to Old Trafford.
The Norway international, who has scored 19 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions, is a concrete target for United and, as reported by the Manchester Evening News earlier this week, is a player that interim manager Ralf Rangnick is pushing to bring to Old Trafford.
The €75million release clause in his contract is poised to come into effect in 2022, meaning a whole host of clubs will be looking to take advantage of that and try and secure his signature.
The race to sign Haaland is expected to be both jam-packed and difficult for all interested parties to navigate their way through smoothly, with several European giants vying for his signature.
United want to sign a new striker ahead of next season, with a vision in place for that arrival to be their long-term goal-getter for years to come. In Haaland, United could not wish for anyone better.
The 21-year-old, who was born in Leeds, is considered as one of the most exciting talents in the world, explaining why so many clubs are keen on landing him.
Since joining Dortmund almost two years ago, the former Red Bull Salzburg man has scored a staggering 76 goals in 75 appearances.
Meanwhile, United are set to face competition from Italian giants AC Milan for the services of highly-rated Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara, a report by Calciomercato.com claims.
United are poised to prioritise the signing of a new holding midfield player in the January transfer window and reports in the national media this week have closely linked United with a move for Kamara.
The 22-year-old is considered as one of the most highly-rated defensive-minded midfield players in Europe and is out-of-contract at the end of the season.
With that in mind, several clubs are being linked with the Frenchman, as a cut-price deal may be on offer in January.
Amongst those reportedly keen on his signature are Milan, who could be forced to source a replacement for Franck Kessie next month, with the Ivory Coast international also out-of-contract at the end of the campaign.
The report claims that Milan have got their eye on the defensive-midfielder and that Marseille will consider listening to offers in January.
