The Athletic reports United have strongly retained their interest in signing Haaland as well as his team-mate Sancho.
England forward Sancho was United's top summer target and although a move did not materialise, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer instead signing free agent Edinson Cavani up front, United's willingness to do a deal has not gone away.
But it is United's interest in Norwegian striker Haaland, who Solskjaer coached during his time at Molde, which has been renewed and the 20-year-old has a £68m release clause valid in the summer of 2022 written into his Dortmund contract.
The report details that though Solskjaer refused to meet the financial demands of Mino Raiola - Haaland's agent - when the forward eventually moved from RB Salzburg to Dortmund in January, United's long-term interest remains.
The relationship between Haaland and Solskjaer is still thought to be strong, and United could pursue a move sooner than 2022 for a higher fee if his performances justify a steeper price tag.
