Manchester United can still sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland despite missing out on his transfer at the start of this month.
According to German newspaper Bild, the new Borussia Dortmund signing has a release clause in his contract at the club and that Manchester United can capitalize on that release clause in the future.
Erling Haaland became a phenomenon on the European football scene after he scored 28 goals in just 22 games in the colours of Red Bull Salzburg FC of Austria over the course of the last five months of last year.
The 19-year-old Norwegian international striker left Austrian Bundesliga champions Red Bull Salzburg to join Borussia Dortmund in a £17m deal after snubbing Manchester United.

According to him, Dortmund wanted him the most and that impacted his decision.
Bild stated that his agent Mino Raiola initially proposed a release clause of £42m which didn’t go down well with Borussia Dortmund officials.
Borussia Dortmund increased that release clause to £63m but it’s not valid this summer.
Erling Haaland has had a sensational start to his career at Borussia Dortmund after netting five goals in just two league games.
He netted a hattrick on his debut after coming on as a substitute.
