If the merging reports are to be believed, then Man United might never secure the signature of Borussia Dortmund player Erling Haaland in the future after missing out on their chance in the past.

The Red Devils are reported to have made an attempt for the signature of the striker but they opted out in the January transfer window because of the agency fee that was deemed too high.

Reports claim that the Red Devils are making efforts to return for his signature in the coming summer transfer window but that might not happen as the player is not interested in a move to the club but prefers a move to the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Spanish outlet ABC claims that Real Madrid are now favourites in the chase of Erling Haaland and they are ready to do business with the German Bundesliga outfit in the coming months.

Man United already have a history of failed transfer negotiation with Borussia Dortmund with their experience during their chase of England international winger, Jadon Sancho at the just concluded summer transfer window.

A fee of £108 million could not be met by the Red Devils and that put an end to the deal.
