Haaland will be available for £64m at the end of the season, courtesy of said clause, and, to rub salt in United’s wounds after their near-miss of 2019, he is understood to be closing in on a switch to bitter rivals Man City. The Premier League champions look set to seal what, at first glance, poses as a coup, given his current quality and overwhelming potential.
On Haaland’s future, Watzke explained Dortmund would make sure to find his replacement, as they have previously done with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. “He has a decision to make, it will come eventually,” Watzke added. “But I’m sure we’ll find the new Haaland. We need the new Haaland.”
