Manchester united primary target in the transfer window remains, Erling Haaland. It is reported that the Red Devils have been tipped to make a move for the young attacker in January, rather than wait till the summer. The report also states that Haaland has a release clause in his contract.
There were reports in Germany claiming that Haaland has a special release clause that would enable him to join Bundesliga side, RB Leipzig for €30 million, while other interested parties in the player will have to pay anything from €50-€100 million for the young attacker.
Sources close to the player have revealed that the player will consider a move to the Bundesliga side before making the leap to a major club later in his career. The decision has given RB Leipzig an advantage over any other interested party.
However, Salzburg’s sporting director, Christoph Freund has denied any sort of release clause that favours RB Leipzig or any other club. He denied the reports, stating they are not a club that develop stars for any club.
The lack of special privileges will make it very difficult for RB Leipzig to compete financially for the player. That leaves Manchester United in pole position to bring the 19-year-old to Old Trafford.
