Thursday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Erling Braut Haaland, Diogo Dalot, Nathan Bishop

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Thursday, January 14.

The January transfer window is now open, with Manchester United continuing to be linked with a host of big names.

The Red Devils have already agreed a deal to sign Amad Traore, and could look to bolster their ranks further to build on an encouraging first half of the season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Thursday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United, Real Madrid 'suffer Erling Braut Haaland blow'

Erling Braut Haaland's agent Mino Raiola is reportedly keen to send the Borussia Dortmund striker to Barcelona.

The 20-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in European football, scoring 35 goals in just 34 appearances for Dortmund since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have both been strongly linked with the Norway international, who has registered 19 goals in 16 outings at club level during the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to Catalunya Radio, Haaland's agent Raiola is keen to strike a strong relationship with Barca and will urge the young forward to join Ronald Koeman's side.

A recent report claimed that the La Liga giants would complete a move for Haaland if Emili Rousaud becomes the club's new president, although Raiola recently rejected suggestions that discussions had already taken place.

The Norwegian is unlikely to be allowed to leave BVB this summer, but a release clause in his contract is expected to come into play in 2022, with a host of clubs said to be keeping a close eye on developments.

AC Milan 'would only buy Diogo Dalot for the right price'

AC Milan reportedly want to see more from Diogo Dalot in the coming months before committing to a permanent deal for the Manchester United defender.

The 21-year-old joined the Italian giants on loan over the summer and has been a regular this season, making 15 appearances in all competitions, contributing one goal and two assists in the process.

According to Milan Live, Milan have faith in Dalot's potential but would only be prepared to buy him 'for the right price' as they have more pressing concerns at this moment in time.

The report also claims that the Serie A outfit want to see more from the Portuguese, who has been criticised for showing 'great fatigue' during stages of matches, before launching an offer.

However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano recently claimed that United are "convinced" that Dalot "will be a top full-back in the future", meaning that they have no interest in selling him on a permanent deal.

The right-back has made 35 appearances for United since arriving at the club in 2018.
