Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick is reportedly keen on signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland as per the report in English outlet Manchester Evening News

The Red Devils were heavily linked with a move for the 21-year-old back in 2020 but the Premier League giants failed to engineer a move for the highly-rated forward and he ended up joining Borussia Dortmund. Since then, the Norwegian has made 74 appearances in all competitions for the BVB, scoring 76 goals. 

According to the report, Manchester United’s interim boss, Ralf Rangnick is eager to sign Erling Braut Haaland and has already asked the club hierarchy to engineer a move, despite the fierce competition from the other clubs. 

The report further claims that the German boss has a great relationship with the player’s representatives and has already held a discussion with the 21-year-old’s father Alf-Inge Haaland about his son’s availability. 

Can Ralf Rangnick bring Erling Braut Haaland to Manchester United? 

Erling Braut Haaland will be a statement signing for Manchester United if the club hierarchy can pull off this deal. The player’s agent Mino Riola has already started negotiations with different clubs, including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. But, it is not clear yet what will be the Norwegian’s next destination. 

With Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial eyeing for a move away from the Old Trafford stadium, signing the 21-year-old will be an excellent acquisition for Manchester United. The youngster is strong, quick and great in the air. So, he will be a perfect candidate for the Red Devils and can develop alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. 

However, signing the Norway international will be very expensive for the Old Trafford outfit. The forward has a €75 million(£64m) release clause in his current contract and including player’s salary and agent fees, the Red Devils would have to spend over £100 million. So, it will be interesting to see if the Red Devils hierarchy would want to pay out that much money, having spent over £100 million last summer. 

Therefore, it will be interesting to see what Manchester United decide about the signing of Erling Braut Haaland. But, adding the 21-year-old into the squad will be a shrewd decision from the Red Devils hierarchy.
