Really? New claims Man Utd, Arsenal target Haaland has cut-price buyout clause

Fresh claims are emerging in Germany that RB Salzburg sensation Erling Haaland can be signed in January for chump change.

BILD says the Norway international's contract has a buyout clause which comes into effect in January for a knockdown price of €20m.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are all keen on Haaland, who could now leave Salzburg next month for a fee less than four times his current market rate.

However last month, Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund rubbished claims of any type of 'special clause'.

Freund told APA: "There is no such clause, which is not an issue for us."

He did add: "Basically, we always want to allow players to take the next step. We are known for not keeping players."
