Erling Haaland's '£64m transfer release clause activates on September 1 with Man Utd and Co able to buy Dortmund star'

ERLING HAALAND could be on the move in January with his £64million release clause to reportedly become active on September 1.

It had been thought that the Borussia Dortmund striker's buyout clause wouldn't come into play until next summer.

But according to Spanish outlet Marca, potential suitors will be able to snap him up on the cheap in the winter transfer market.

That is because they state his £64m clause comes into effect at the start of next month, though it is believed Haaland plans to see out the coming season with BVB.

However that may not stop the likes of Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona from looking to snap him up in the New Year.

A move to LaLiga has been mooted with his agent Mino Raiola and dad Alf Inge meeting Los Blancos and Barca earlier this year for transfer talks.

Meanwhile Bayern could look to keep him in Germany to replace Robert Lewandowski, with the Polish ace claimed to be seeking a new challenge away from the Bundesliga.

Chelsea had been keen to sign the 21-year-old prior to bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge, while Manchester City are prioritising a move for Harry Kane over the Norway international.


And it is understood that the Red Devils are the only Premier League side that stand a chance of luring the towering centre-forward to England.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known to be a huge admirer of the player, with Haaland making his professional debut under his tutelage at Molde.

Solskjaer then tried to sign Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg midway through the 2019/20 season, but he opted instead to join Dortmund.

But a move to United could be on the cards next year, with the 2021 German Cup winner said to be 'dreaming' of a Premier League switch.

Should he make the move to Old Trafford, he will link up with former BVB team-mate Jadon Sancho after he joined United for £73m this summer.

Haaland, who banged in 41 goals from as many games last campaign, has already scored five times from three matches this term.

A hat-trick against third-tier side Wehen Wiesbaden in the German Cup was followed up by a brace against Eintracht Frankfurt in Dortmund's Bundesliga opener.

Though he failed to get on the score sheet in the German Super Cup against Bayern as the Bavarian outfit eased to a 3-1 win.
