Man Utd chief Ed Woodward makes Erling Haaland transfer decision as Real Madrid hatch plan
Manchester United will swoop for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer if the striker chooses to leave the Bundesliga outfit after his sensational performances. The youngster only moved to the club in January but has made an immediate impression.
Dortmund expect to keep Haaland for another season, but should the 19-year-old decide to make a switch United and Real Madrid are on red alert.
A release clause was inserted into the striker’s contract when he made the move from Salzburg.
Haaland has not burned any bridges with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite rejecting United in January, according to ESPN.
Dortmund are desperate to keep hold of Haaland this summer with the likelihood of Jadon Sancho leaving the club this summer.

United backed away from a deal with Haaland in January because of concerns over the insistence of a release clause in his contract.
Club bigwigs including Ed Woodward felt it would give Mino Raiola and Haaland too much control over his future.
Haaland has netted an incredible 12 goals in just 11 matches for Dortmund, sparking renewed speculation over his future.
