Manchester United's hierarchy has reportedly made a big transfer decision on Erling Haaland, one many claim could risk upsetting Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to Manchester Evening News, director of football John Murtough and first-team boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer agree that the Borussia Dortmund striker should be the club's priority signing ahead of next season.
It appears that Haaland, 21, is likely to leave the Bundesliga giants at the end of the campaign, although United could expect to face stiff competition for his signature.
Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are all linked with the Norway international, who has scored 11 goals in eight matches so far for Dortmund this season.
With Edinson Cavani tipped to leave the Red Devils in 2022, Solskjaer and the club's board seemingly believe bringing in reinforcement up front is necessary, despite Ronaldo's presence.
The Daily Express has suggested that the Portugal international might find it uncomfortable fighting for a place in the starting XI with Haaland, although he will be 37 years old by the time United approach the former Red Bull Salzburg man.
Due to his ability and status as one of the best goalscorers in the world today, Haaland would likely assume an important role in Solskjaer's plans in England.
The two Norwegians worked together at Molde in Norway when Haaland was still a teenager, with the forward scoring 20 goals in 50 appearances under Solskjaer back then.
