And now PSG are leading the race to sign the player according to Italian platform La Gazetta dello Sport as the report claim agent Raiola has requested a salary in the region of €50 million-a-year, SunSport reports.

It was further gathered that Dortmund rejected several offers for Haaland this summer, including some in the region of €120 million.

The player will be available next summer as his release clause is said to be around €75 million, but Dortmund are desperate in keeping him.

Raiola also wants commission as Haaland's price tag would be 'lower' than his actual transfer value.

Manchester United making efforts in landing Haaland

Meanwhile, Man United are reportedly laying the foundation for another busy summer transfer window in 2022 that could see the club make some top signings including Haaland.

United had a busy window this summer, with the club landing three major signings in Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

Speaking during a virtual fan's forum, the American businessman Joel Glazer outlined the club's plans, making a vow to continue rebuilding the team.

Man United could be boasting of a stunning attack that includes a mixture of both experience and talent.

Ronaldo names the next great player

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo sent a WhatsApp message to former teammate Rio Ferdinand while he was on a TV debating who the next player to rule football between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland is.

The Ronaldo and Lionel Messi era are gradually winding down and the debate is now between the youngsters playing for Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner intervened in the discussion as he said he was still relevant in winning trophies despite his age.
