Erling Haaland: Will Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool pounce for Dortmund star in the summer?

Erling Haaland, 20, is under contract at Dortmund until 2024 but has a reported €75m (£66m) release clause, which comes into effect in the summer of 2022; the Pitch to Post podcast panel discuss the options, and likelihood of Haaland leaving in the coming months

Haaland, 20, is under contract at Dortmund until 2024 but has a reported €75m (£66m) release clause, which comes into effect in the summer of 2022.

The Norwegian has developed into one of the world’s most prolific forwards having scored 43 goals in 44 appearances for Dortmund since joining from Red Bull Salzburg for just £17m at the end of 2019.

United met Haaland’s release clause at the time but could not agree on the conditions for the transfer, with the stumbling block believed to be the value of the requested buy-out option if he moved to Old Trafford.

A host of Europe’s top clubs have been linked with a move for Haaland, as well as La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

But could a side look to get Haaland a year early by bidding big in this summer’s window?

Jasper Taylor was joined by Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth and SkySports.com’s Gerard Brand to discuss the options, and likelihood of Haaland leaving in the coming months.
