Manchester United make major breakthrough in Haaland deal, Rakitic offer rejected: Premier League rumours
Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Erling Haaland.
According to The Sun the Red Devils are willing to loan Haaland back to RB Salzburg for the rest of the season if they can complete a deal in January, which could swing the race in their favour.
A number of top clubs are interested in Haaland, but few seem willing to pay the £85m asking price.
Haaland already has 26 goals in 18 games this season and is one of the hottest strikers in Europe.
Manchester United are very keen to add him to their ranks to increase their proficiency in front of goal.
