Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland looks set to depart the club next summer as the biggest clubs in Europe battle to sign him. The Norway international has a £68million release clause, which means clubs can land Haaland for much less than his market value.
Haaland has been linked with a string of European powerhouses over recent months and could even opt to stay in Germany by signing for Dortmund’s arch-rivals Bayern Munich.
But a move to the south of the country would anger Bayern superstar Robert Lewandowski according to commentator and former Norway international Jan Age Fjortoft, who is said to be friendly with Haaland and his family.
“Haaland is not looking for the money because he never has,” said Fjortoft.
“If he goes to Bayern, it is a luxury problem. And Lewandowski will be angry. That sounds difficult.”
The Lewandowski obstacle could pave the way for Haaland to quit German football and move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are big admirers of the 21-year-old and have been tracking the player for some time.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed Haaland when he was in charge of Molde and is said to have an excellent relationship with the striker.
But there are doubts over the Norwegian’s future at Old Trafford after Man Utd dropped more Premier League points at the weekend.
United were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton after suffering a home defeat to Aston Villa a week earlier.
Solskjaer had already seen Southampton take points off his side in August and oversaw a defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League last month.

The Red Devils were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of West Ham and Solskjaer may not even be given the opportunity to work his magic and lure Haaland.
“I think Haaland and his family do not know where he is going to go either,” continued Fjortoft.
“Because the world of football is changing – there are so many things that affect that. They do not know where he will play in the 2021/22 season.
“Haaland and his team are always looking for development. And if that’s the case in Dortmund, then it will stay there.
“One of his strengths is that he can ignore the pressure. I’m not worried about Erling. He always prepares very well.
“In his private life he is a completely normal 21-year-old who explodes in the countryside.
“I see an educated and humble boy who enjoys playing football. But when you see him on the field, you think he has a completely different personality.”
