Neville’s choice in potential signing comes as no surprise as 20-year-old Haaland is one of the hottest prospects in world football right now.
It’s been widely reported that the Borussia Dortmund striker will be available to buy in the summer of 2022 for £65million but a new report suggests that figure isn’t quite accurate.
According to BILD, the 20-year-olds release clause fee is closer to £86.5million which would bring the value of the Norwegian over the €100million mark.
United are in the race for the Norwegian’s signature with the Red Devils boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer saying he keeps ‘in touch’ with his fellow countryman.
‘I keep in touch with Erling – it is great to see him become the player he has become. He is a Dortmund player and we wish him well there. Let’s see what life will bring later on.’ said Solskjaer according to the Daily Mail.
According to Bild, Haaland he will only join one of six clubs: Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona or Real Madrid.
