The Red Devils are said to be one of several European clubs willing to pounce on Haaland when his release clause of £67m becomes active next summer.

Which is the perfect time for United to make their move for the Norwegian as that’s when the club’s veteran striker Edison Cavani’s contract runs out.

But on top of the £67m, United will reportedly have to pay Haaland a whopping £825,000-a-week in wages, plus hand his agent Mino Raiola a separate sum of £34m for his part in the deal.

The 21-year-old, who scored 41 goals in as many games for Dortmund in all competitions last season, is also high on the list of United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea.

And the Hammers have already declared that they aren’t willing to take no less than a £100m for Rice.

The 22-year-old England star has three years left on his Hammers contract but is said to want to leave the club to join United.


He’s said to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s No.1 midfield target and United’s hierarchy have already sat down to discuss what needs to be done to push the transfer through.

United fans are also demanding that the club sign Rice following his stellar display against them last week.

Although Rice couldn’t inspire the Hammers to a win in their 2-1 Prem loss to United, the Old Trafford faithful were so impressed with what they saw, some reckon he’s what the club needed to win the title.

One supporter tweeted: “Declan Rice is the missing piece between Man Utd and the Premier League title.”

Another wrote: “I thought Declan Rice was excellent for West Ham today. He would be ideal for United.

“He’s very good in possession. His quick decision-making coupled with that burst of acceleration means he’s difficult to close down.”
