Manchester United take lead in the Erling Braut Haaland race?

Manchester United is reportedly leading a three-way race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Braut Haaland in the summer.
The 21-year-old will become one of the world’s most sought-after strikers when his release clause, valued in the region of £64m, kicks in in June.

An earlier report from last month claimed that United had withdrawn from the race to sign the Norway international as they discovered the striker has intentions of joining Real Madrid.

However, The Sun, via FourFourTwo, reports that Whites’ pursuit of main target Kylian Mbappe potentially leaves United, Manchester City, and Chelsea to contend for Haaland’s signature, with the Red Devils confident they can avoid the interest of their Premier League rivals. .

The report, however, does not mention Barcelona, ​​which is believed to be Haaland’s preferred destination if he decides to leave Dortmund in the summer.

Haaland has excelled in front of goals for the Bundesliga giants since he joined the club in January 2020, scoring 80 goals in 79 appearances in all competitions.
