Man Utd eyeing move for €100m Bundesliga forward

By | October 20, 2020

Borussia Dortmund attacker Erling Braut Haaland has reportedly emerged as a future transfer target for Manchester Utd and Juventus.

While the Norway international has spent less than one year at the Signal Iduna Park, a number of release clauses in his current deal will come into effect from 2021 onwards.

That has inevitably led to interest from a number of top teams across the Europe including Manchester City and Real Madrid who are in the market for offensive reinforcements

However, according to reports in Spain, Serie A champions Juve and Manchester Utd have identified the 20-year-old as a potential addition in 2021.

Man Utd are believed to be regarded as the frontrunners given their willingness to conclude a €100m (£90.67m) deal in the next summer transfer window.

Haaland’s price tag will allegedly drop to €70m (£63.47m) if Dortmund are able to retain his services until 2022.

Meanwhile, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Serie A champions, Juventus would have already secured the services of Manchester United midfield star Paul Pogba during the recent transfer window if no the coronavirus outbreak.

The France international was heavily linked with a switch away from the Red Devils earlier this year, and it had been believed that both  Real Madrid and Juve were at the head of the queue to sign him.

The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, though, meant that neither of the UCL giants could afford the signing of £290,000 a-week Man Utd star.
