Borussia Dortmund have allegedly set Erling Haaland’s price at €180m if the forward is to leave this summer.
The Norweigan striker is reportedly a priority target for both Manchester clubs as well as Real Madrid among others.
With 49 goals in as many games for BVB, it is easy to understand just why the player is in so much demand and Dortmund are hoping to keep hold of him for another season by deploying the same tactic that forced Manchester United to abandon their move for Jadon Sancho last summer.
Haaland has made his intentions clear that he will not be tied down to a club and wants to emulate the likes of journeyman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Manchester United’s gamble with Anthony Martial has not paid off while Edinson Cavani is said to be unhappy with his time in Manchester and could be on the way out in the summer.
For Manchester City and Real Madrid, it is a case of a long-term successor for goal-scoring legends Sergio Aguero and Karim Benzema.
Haaland has a €75m release clause that comes into effect in the summer of 2022 which means this window offers Dortmund the chance to try to get maximum value out of the prolific center forward.
