    Man Utd and rivals Man City are both interested in Erling Haaland with Borussia Dortmund reportedly willing to sell the striker.

    United have been heavily linked with the Norway star for over a year but it seems the now have competition on their own doorstep.

    Haaland, 20, is widely regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in world football and will spark a bidding war if he decides to leave Germany.

    And, according to the Mail, Dortmund may be prepared to sell Haaland at the end of the season with his market value likely to soar.

    Haaland has a £65million release clause in 2022 and the German club could decide it is financially best to sell him earlier for a bigger fee.

    Man Utd rejected an offer for Paul Pogba from Juventus in the summer, according to reports.

    CalcioMercato reports the Old Lady wanted to swap Miralem Pjanic and Douglas Costa to bring Pogba back to Turin.

    The French World Cup winner, 27, returned to Old Trafford in 2016 for £89million having spent four years in Serie A.

    The report states Juventus were unable to meet United's £92m asking price.

    And the Red Devils were not keen on signing Pjanic or Costa.

    Pjanic instead moved to Barcelona in a deal that saw Arthur go the other way while Costa joined Champions League winners Bayern Munich on loan.

    Manchester United will find out their Europa League opponents following the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League by RB Leipzig last week.

    And the Red Devils followed that up with a bore draw at home to Man City, as questions remained about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's management.

    Meanwhile Borussia Dortmund's interim manager is on the record as saying Jadon Sancho's form dipped as he was affected by transfer speculation linking him to Man Utd.

    Edin Terzic commented in May: “He’s a young player and is one of our most important players.

    "I have to say that the transfer speculations are affecting him.

    "We have to support him in a positive way. I want all of our players to be happy.”

    And Louis van Gaal says Donny van de Beek made a mistake in joining the Red Devils.

    He commented: “I hope his time will come, but I don’t think he made a good choice. I said that right away.

    “If you have Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, what position should van de Beek be in?

    “He doesn’t have the qualities of Pogba and Fernandes. And now you see that Pogba often doesn’t start. Where should van de Beek play then?

    “I think you could have seen that beforehand. There are so many teams, which could have done better justice to him, also in the top division. He is a boy with many qualities.”
