How Man Utd could line up with Haaland up front if they land Dortmund goal machine this summer

MANCHESTER UNITED are being strongly linked with a sensational swoop for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be handed a summer war chest – and Haaland could well top his shortlist.

United were in the hunt for Haaland, the most wanted striker in Europe, before he joined Borussia Dortmund last January.

A £65million release clause only kicks in next year, meaning anyone wanting to sign the 20-year-old before then will have to pay an inflated premium.

The striker has been in sensational form this season, scoring 17 Bundesliga goals in as many games.

Haaland made the headlines yesterday after scoring a stunning scissor kick against bitter rivals Schalke.

Manchester City and Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

If United win the battle, Haaland could be the long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan has impressed since he joined in the summer but he is 34 and is yet to agree an extension to the one-year deal he signed.

Haaland could well be joined by another of Europe's in-form players this summer.

Jack Grealish is starring as captain at Aston Villa, and despite being a boyhood fan he could well leave in the search of big trophies.


United have still shown some weaknesses at the back, with Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly hardly proving themselves just yet alongside Harry Maguire.

Real Madrid centre-half Sergio Ramos is one big name linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

The Spaniard is still to agree a new contract with Los Blancos and at 34-years-old he might fancy one last challenge.
