Thursday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Erling Braut Haaland, Brandon Williams, Denis Zakaria

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Thursday, December 3.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

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 'learn amount required to sign Erling Braut Haaland'

Manchester United will reportedly have to pay out £91m in order to sign Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund during the summer of 2022.

The Norway international was strongly linked with a move to United before leaving Red Bull Salzburg to join Dortmund in January, and the 20-year-old has been a revelation at Signal Iduna Park.

Haaland has struck 33 times in 32 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 17 goals in 14 outings during the 2020-21 campaign.

United will allegedly return for the attacker in 2022, when a £64m release clause in his contract is believed to come into effect.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the Red Devils would also have to pay out £18m in various agency and commission fees, including to super-agent Mino Raiola.

The report claims that the 20-time English champions would also need to pay £9m to Haaland's family, including his father Alf-Inge Haaland, in order to complete a deal.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are also believed to be admirers of the centre-forward.

Manchester City reportedly intend to join the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.

The Switzerland international has continued to enhance his reputation this season, helping his club compete with Real Madrid and Inter Milan in their Champions League group.

Manchester United and Chelsea have previously been linked with the 24-year-old, who is expected to move to a bigger club in the future.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano's Here We Go podcast, City will prioritise a bid for the player during the summer transfer window.

Speaking on the podcast, Romano said: "Manchester City are focusing on Zakaria. He is so appreciated by the board, they are following him, they are in contact with his agent. So he's for sure on the list of Manchester City."

Zakaria has just 19 months remaining on his contract with Monchengladbach.
