Man Utd joined by PSG in Erling Haaland transfer race with Lewandowski 'back-up option if Mbappe leaves for Real Madrid'

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have joined the race to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, according to reports.

The 21-year-old Norwegian will be able to leave the Bundesliga side for £68million in the summer as he has a release clause in his contract.


And, according to Le10sport.com, PSG's sporting director Leonardo has prioritised Haaland as their number one target.

The Ligue 1 side are also monitoring the situation surrounding Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

The Pole's current contract expires in 2023 and it was reported earlier this season that he could be tempted to embark on a new challenge.

And PSG may well be the perfect fit for the 33-year-old, who scored 48 goals in 40 games last season.

Haaland, who has also attracted interest from Manchester United, netted 41 times in 41 games in the 2020-21 campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino's team could be without star forward Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

The World Cup winner looked set to move to Real Madrid before the deal fell through on deadline day.

But he has doubled down on his desire to leave as his contract expires at the end of the season.

Mbappe told RMC Sport: "I asked to leave, because from the moment where I did not want to extend [my contract], I wanted the club to receive a transfer fee so they could bring in a quality replacement.

"This club has given me a lot, I have always been happy – the four years I have had here – and I still am.

"I said it early enough so that the club could react. I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand-in-hand, to make a good deal and I respected that.

"I said, if you don’t want me to go I will stay.”
