Borussia Dortmund issue stern Erling Haaland update amid Manchester United and Man City interest

Man Utd and Manchester City are both interested in a move to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.


Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insists nothing has changed in regards to the future of Erling Haaland and reiterated the Bundesliga club are still planning next season with him in their squad.

The future of Haaland, 20, continues to dominate the transfer columns in the summer window with interest high in signing the Norwegian striker.

Manchester United view Haaland as the dream striking target having seen a move for him rejected in January 2020, while Man City are also admirers as they search for a new attacker in the current window.

There is also interest from Chelsea in a move for the former Salzburg star as well as links with cash-strapped La Liga duo Real Madrid and Barcelona.

However, any move this summer still looks unlikely given Dortmund are adamant the Norway international will remain at the club beyond deadline day.

“Nothing has changed," Zorc is quoted by Bild.

"We are still planning with Erling for the new season”

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and football director John Murtough had mutually agreed on a proposed move for Haaland this summer before Edinson Cavani renewed his deal.

Solskjaer refused to rule out a move for a centre forward this summer but United have already invested £72.9m in Jadon Sancho and are unlikely to make any more attacking additions. United are interested in signing a centre-back, a full-back and a central midfielder.
