Manchester United keen on landing £65m-rated striker next summer
Manchester United remain determined to land Erling Braut Haaland next summer despite their summer signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo made the stunning return to Old Trafford after 12 years. He has made an instant impact with four goals from just three matches.
The 36-year-old was not a transfer priority for the Red Devils, but they did not think twice when the opportunity arose to re-sign him.
According to ESPN, the arrival of Ronaldo does not change their transfer blueprint, and Haaland remains on their radar for next summer.
The Norwegian has a release clause worth £65m on his Dortmund contract. The buy-out option will become active at the end of this season.
Dortmund are braced for his exit next summer. United are determined to prise him away ahead of some of Europe's elite clubs.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea have all been credited with an interest in the marksman.
With Ronaldo still at the top of his game, there could be the prospect of Haaland playing alongside the Portuguese up front next term.
