Erling Haaland could reportedly leave Borussia Dortmund in January with his £64million release clause set to be moved forward.

Haaland's release clause was understood to have become active next summer, but according to Marca, that may no longer be the case. Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea are all interested in signing the 21-year-old, who is one of the hottest stars in Europe today.

Haaland has scored 62 goals in 63 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund, prompting links to Real Madrid and Barcelona, but the LaLiga giants were put off by his asking price.

However, both clubs could be back in for him if his release clause becomes active earlier than expected. Pep Guardiola's side are still looking to replace Sergio Aguero and have been linked with a move for Tottenham's Harry Kane, but have until now been unable to meet Spurs' asking price for the England international.

United currently have Edinson Cavani, 34, as the first choice striker, but The Telegraph claimed last week that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won't turn down the chance to sign another striker either now or next summer.

When asked about his future earlier this summer, Haaland said: "Before yesterday I haven’t talked to my agent in a month. I hope they are just rumours, as €175m would be a lot of money for one person."
