The Norwegian sensation is the hottest property on the transfer market and looks set to be at the centre of a fierce transfer battle between Europe’s top clubs this summer.
United are among the teams wanting to land the 20-year-old’s signature, but to do so they first have to sell players to raise some cash, writes the Express.
Haaland is likely to command a fee of more than £100 million and finances are tight at Old Trafford amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The sale of one of their top two goalkeepers, Dean Henderson or David de Gea, would raise a good amount of money, with Henderson rated at £50m.
Paul Pogba’s potential exit is a constant talking point, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to keep the Frenchman.
But Lingard, who has impressed on loan at West Ham since making a January move to London, could bring in another £20m that would go towards a move for Haaland.
The Hammers are understood to be eager to make the 28-year-old’s move permanent after a run of form that saw him earn a recall to Gareth Southgate’s England squad this week.
