Man Utd transfer rumours: Erling Haaland contract decision, Trippier battle, Martial talks
With only a little over a week left of 2021, we are getting closer to the opening of the January transfer window and rumours surrounding Manchester United are growing.
The arrival of Ralf Rangnick has seen a host of new players linked with a move to Old Trafford as the Red Devils look to kick off a new era.
Here are some of today’s stand out rumours.
Dortmund to offer Haaland bumper contract
Erling Haaland has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now and has become one of the biggest names in world football thanks to his success in the Bundesliga.
Manchester United are one club that have previously expressed their interest in signing Haaland, with the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea also keen.
According to Marca, Borussia Dortmund are preparing to double the striker’s salary in order to tempt him to remain with the German club.
This means Haaland’s earnings would rise to a whopping 16 million euros a year if he was to stay.
Given Haaland’s recent success, as well as Dortmund’s failure to progress in the Champions League, it is looking increasingly likely that the Norwegian will make a move in pursuit of silverware.
Red Devils in for Kieran Trippier
The England international was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer and is now looking likely to return to the Premier League in January.
The Red Devils have already enquired about signing the right-back, as well as the likes of Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Everton.
It was previously reported that Newcastle United were preparing to offer Trippier a huge £150,000 a week contract to tempt him to join the Magpies.
Anthony Martial holds talks
The forward has struggled for minutes this season and has previously made it clear that he wants to leave the club.
The Frenchman is thought to be keen on a move to Sevilla with the Spanish club interested in a loan deal.
Martial will be hopeful that Rangnick will allow the move to go through, with the Red Devils already having plenty of competition up top.
