This summer, the Red Devils will pursue their interest since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to strengthen his team before the next season starts.

United will be pleased to know that Dortmund allows Sancho to depart “under certain circumstances”. However, those circumstances are not yet clear, but one possibility is failing to get Champions League qualifications.

BVB are sitting one point outside the top four on the


table and there are only three games left to be played. Michael Zorc, Dortmund’s sporting director, insisted that the club do not have such an agreement with

Erling Haaland


We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions,"

Zorc told 



"He's been with us for a couple of years. However, this agreement does not exist with Erling."

United’s hopes of signing Haaland will be blown as he is one of the strikers they are keeping tabs on. The Norwegian has been highly demanded by major clubs around the world, including

, and



It was assumed that Barcelona and Real Madrid will not be able to land the Norway international due to financial problems. However, Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola stated that a

La Liga

move is possible.

It’s complicated but not impossible,”

he told 



“That’s the job of a club leader. 

“It’s the same for the club as it is for the players. A train goes by and what do you do? Do you take it or don’t you take it? That’s the big question.”
