His runs are unreal. He gets in behind, evading the offside trap so often and his finishing is clinical.

The other Dortmund attackers just have to play the ball in behind and he will score every fecking game.

Ole sent him to work with Sancho for half a season before we swoop them both in the summer! :)

He's got such a low release clause anyway - really means cr*p all.

Such horrible defending aswell.

Again — can someone explain to me why Augsburg are playing so high up the field?! Do they think they’re Man City?

This is so fecking annoying. Only thing that makes a bit less angry about missing on him is him having Raiola as an agent.

His finishing is SO good. He just doesnt miss a lot of scoring opportunities. hattrick in 22 minutes in the Bundesliga debut.

If this is his level and MUFC don't bend over backwards to buy him when he's ready to move again I'll probably throw up from "missing out" anxiety.

One of Ole biggest failure at United. How he wasn’t able to lure him is a big warning sign for any United supporters. It is obvious this kid is talented and Ole’s connection and also managing one of the biggest club in the world!!.......This is a sackable offense. I will not forgive Ole for this.

What's his release clause?
In the 50 million region. So we can trigger it, it really depends when the player would want to leave.. He obviously joind Dortmund to be there longer than 6 months.

100%. We should have bent over backwards to stick a ridiculously low release clause into his contract. What this club needs more of is players who don't want to be here and more rumours that they'll be on the move every few weeks.

only kicks in in 2022 though. So he will be there for 2 and a half years, unless someone buys him for a ridiculous amount next year

You don't understand what happened with the transfer then I guess. Haaland wanted a release clause in his contract. We were not willing to give that to him. And quite frankly good for us that we didn't. We're not a sellers club, players don't dictate release clauses to play here.

Regarding the release clause, I believe it was reported that it only be first used in summer 2022.

This kid scores goals for fun. Massive talent.

Chelsea fan.
If Norway can't get to a championship (World Cup or Euros) with Haaland and Ødegaard, we're never going to make it.
Is it too late for England to claim him (born and first few years in England I think)?

He turned us down, move on.

Can’t we always renew and update the information in the contract? His attitude would have changed if he was here at United and might have accepted a different contract had we propose it to him a year later. I would have definitely bent over backward for him especially at that price.
