Man Utd still want Erling Haaland despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United are still targetting Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, despite completing a sensational reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo in the last week of the transfer window, according to reports.

The young forward is one of Europe’s hottest properties at the moment and according to ESPN, he remains the club’s priority in next summer’s window despite Ronaldo’s arrival.

There are a host of European clubs interested in Haaland, however, with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain among those weighing up whether to activate the €75m release clause in his contract.

The acquisition of Ronaldo is said to have been financed from funds outside of United’s summer budges but it’s believed that will not hamper the Old Trafford club’s ability to bring Haaland in next year.

After missing out on a deal for Haaland in 2019, contacts with the player’s representatives have remained and his relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is intact. A move for Haaland will, however, be far from straightforward. As mentioned above, several teams are interested.
