Haaland issues fresh transfer update amid Man United and City interest

Erling Haaland said he has ‘not taken a position’ on what he is going to do in the summer transfer window.

The Norwegian forward is one of the hottest talents in world football with both Manchester United and Man City interested in a potential move for him this summer.

Haaland, 20, has already netted a staggering 57 goals in 59 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, with the Bundesliga side adamant they will not sell their prized asset this summer.

MEN Sport understands United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer views Haaland as the dream striking addition, while Pep Guardiola is prioritising the addition of a new centre-forward in the coming months.

Haaland will not be playing in the rescheduled European Championship this summer following Norway’s failure to qualify but he could feature in their two international friendlies against Luxembourg and Greece later this week.

After that the youngster will enjoy some time off before he is expected back in training with Dortmund, and he admits he has not given his future any serious thought ahead of the summer window.

“I have not taken a position on that,” Haaland told Norwegian reporters while away on international duty. “After this international break I will go on vacation, and then I will report for pre-season.”

Dortmund chiefs are adamant Haaland will not be sold this summer, however there is an expectation he will leave the club in a year’s time when his reported €75million release clause becomes active.
