Manchester United have been linked with a shock move for Erling Haaland in the summer, despite the Norweigian only making a switch to Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.
Haaland has been sensational this season, scoring 39 goals in all competitions, which includes an incredible six hat-tricks.
The 19-year-old netted both goals as Dortmund beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash earlier this week.
And family friend and former Norway striker Jan Age Fjortoft has revealed a clause Haaland has in his Dortmund contract, although he doesn’t think he will move in the summer.
“This is a club that sold Dembele to Barcelona for €100m, but I can’t see that happening [with Haaland],” he said on talkSPORT.

“I don’t have all the contract details, he has a clause of €75m but I don’t think that will be in the first year, so there won’t be a chance of that.
“I think it would be wise for him [to stay]. He’s 19 and I’m glad Erling Haaland today wakes up in Dortmund.
“It’s better to wake up in Dortmund than in Manchester, Liverpool, Torino, Barcelona or Madrid if you’re a 19-year-old shooting star.

“What I like about Team Haaland, the son of a former Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Manchester City player, is the key for them is development and everything else is a consequence of that.
“All his career he has been developing. From playing for his home town club and then to the best developer of talent in Norway, Molde.
“Then he went to Salzburg, he could have gone to a big club then [he could have joined Juventus] and he could have this time as well, but he’s at Dortmund.
“Dortmund are not a small club, by the way, but they’re well known for developing players to the next level. He’s always done that and it was just enormous what he did against PSG.

“He’s always looking to improve himself and I can see in his game there are things he can do better. He’s 6ft 4in and he can still win more headers, he can kept the ball better, Dortmund can take more advantage of his fantastic way of creating space for himself.
“I’m surprise he’s scored so many goals, but I’m not surprise that he’s taken the next level.
“Can he become the best Norwegian player ever? He certainly has the potential.
“He’s just getting better and better. We’re amazed that he’s developed so quickly.”
United return to action on Sunday when they take on Watford in the Premier League.
