Man Utd chiefs prepared to try again for Haaland

Manchester United chiefs are ready to try again for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The London Evening Standard says United are ready to challenge Real Madrid to sign Haaland this summer if the striker becomes available.

Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund in January but has already been linked with an exit following his blistering start to life in Germany.

United are ready to reignite their interest in the forward if Dortmund are open to cashing in on the 19-year-old.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer missed out on his top strike target in January, with United refusing to accept attempts to include a £66m buyout clause in his contract.

But they remain firm admirers, while Solskjaer is understood to hold no hard feelings against the 19-year-old who he mentored at Molde.
