One of the Premier League's biggest clubs is reportedly in "pole position" to land Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland's signature next season.
Having already landed Jadon Sancho from BVB in this window, Manchester United are now said to be the favourites to land yet another Dortmund sensation in Haaland when the striker's £64 million (R1.3 billion) release clause comes into effect next season, according to German publication Sport Bild.

It is well-documented that the Norway star played under current Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during their time together at Molde, while it is also understood that the Manchester club is in the market for another No. 9, with Edinson Cavani's contract set to expire in June 2022.
With Haaland having scored a spectacular 62 goals in just 63 games across all competitions since joining Dortmund in January 2020, it is reported that the 21-year-old's agent Mino Raiola could trigger his exit clause next year, paving the way for United to seal a move for the player.
However, the forward could yet stay at Signal Iduna Park beyond next season and see out the remainder of his contract, according BVB manager Marco Rose.
"He still has a long-term contract with us. Just because the public is constantly talking about him leaving next summer, that doesn't necessarily have to be the case," he told Sport Bild.
"In the end, Erling has to decide for himself where he sees his future.
"In any case, we are happy that he is currently playing for us – and, who knows, possibly it'll be even more than just one season if we write an extraordinary story here."
