Man Utd blow as PSG join Haaland transfer pursuit amid fear of losing Mbappe to Real Madrid – The Sun

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are reportedly considering a bid for Manchester United target Erling Haaland while worrying over Kylian Mbappe's future.

Real Madrid continue to be strongly linked with the French striker, whose contract expires in 2022.

Talks are said to have struggled so far amid talk of a potential release clause and a £600,000-a-week wage – that would match Neymar's salary in Paris.

But alternative plans are being made, according to Marca, in the form of Borussia Dortmund star Haaland.

Real Madrid and Manchester United appear to be the frontrunners for the Norwegian's signature, the Red Devils having come close to signing him in January.

With 13 goals in 12 games for the Bundesliga club, any doubts over his talents have evaporated and he notched yet again on German football's return from a two-month shutdown against Schalke 04 on Saturday.

But there is still a strong chance that he will shun a move this summer in favour of developing further at Borussia.

A relatively small release clause of £63million is said to be inserted into Haaland's contract, although clubs' ability to afford that amid the coronavirus crisis is unknown.

Not only are PSG concerned over Mbappe's links to Real, they are also set to lose Mauro Icardi and Edinson Cavani at the end of the season.

Icardi's loan spell from Inter Milan can be completed for £62m but relations between Les Parisiens and the player are thought to have soured lately.

Meanwhile, Cavani is reportedly heading back to Uruguay when his contract expires in June to join Diego Forlan's Penarol.

Should Haaland sign for the Ligue 1 champions, he may get a frosty reception after PSG stars mocked his trademark celebration during their Champions League last-16 clash.
