Manchester United are reportedly considering making Erling Haaland their number one target next summer.

The Borussia Dortmund striker has a release clause in his contract, stating that he can leave for £64.5million at the end of this season.

According to ESPN, Haaland is the Red Devils' number one target despite the financial outlay they've recently committed to signing Cristiano Ronaldo.

The report adds Haaland is attracting interest from Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain, and could be on the move as early as January 2022.

The Norwegian scored 41 goals in 41 games across all competitions last season and he's started the new campaign in equally as prolific fashion for Dortmund.

Earlier this week, Dortmund director Michael Zorc has hit out at rumours linking Erling Haaland to Paris Saint-Germain amid talk of the French giants submitting a €200million bid for the 21-year-old.

When asked whether the club's resolve could be tested by a €200m offer, Zorc told Kicker: “We are a football club, not a bank! Our position is very clear and did not change. I assume that we will now be confronted with wild rumours for another two days. Our position is clear, I don't need to play the parrot all the time."
