Manchester United and Real Madrid will have to spend more than £ 107 million to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland before the summer of 2022, according to reports in Spain.

The 19-year-old found the back of the net while Dortmund beat Schalke four times on Saturday, which was his 13th goal in his first 12 appearances for Lucien Favre’s side.

According to sport, the Bundesliga has a verbal agreement with Haaland and his agent, Mino Raiola, which aims to keep the striker at the club until 2022.

But if an offer exceeding £ 107 million were to be made, Dortmund could reconsider its position.

The club accepts that they may be just a stepping stone in Haaland’s career as he prepares for a move to the top.

Manchester United were close to getting the striker’s signature in January, but ultimately lost to the German giants.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains a big fan of Haaland after coaching him earlier in his career in Molde, Norway.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane wants to build a devastating front at the Bernabeu, including Haaland, Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard by next summer.

The Galacticos have struggled to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Juventus last summer and could look to the Norwegian striker as his long-term replacement.

However, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski thinks that Haaland might be better off staying in Dortmund for a few more seasons.

“If he works hard, he can become a better player and eventually reach the highest level,” said the Polish international.

“Therefore, it might be good for him to stay in the Bundesliga longer before taking the next step. “
