Manchester United want to sign Borussia Dortmund stars Jude Bellingham and Erling Haaland next summer
According to The Independent (h/t Sports Mole), Manchester United are interested in bringing young Dortmund sensations, Jude Bellingham and Erlin Haaland to Old Trafford.
Their former teammate Jadon Sancho has already made the move to United. It is being said that Bellingham has contacted Sancho to talk about the setup and atmosphere at the club.
The 18-year-old was reportedly given the chance to join the Red Devils after he left Birmingham but chose the German club instead.
Both the youngsters are making heads turn with their recent performances for club and country. Erling scored a goal against Besiktas in their latest Champions League outing. This took his tally to 66 goals in 66 games for Dortmund in all competitions.
Meanwhile, the teenager scored and assisted one goal against the Turkish side. This made him the youngest ever player to score in back-to-back games in the Champions League.
A £68million release clause becomes active for Erling Haaland next summer. He has garnered a lot of interest from other European clubs. Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Chelsea are the other clubs that are strongly linked with the Norwegian.
Bellingham has also been drumming up interest from several top clubs. Fellow rivals Liverpool are said to be in contention to splurge close to £80million on the teenager.
