Good morning United fans
Bruno Fernandes will be Barcelona’s No1 summer transfer target if they cannot secure Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
The 27-year-old Portuguese star has struggled in recent months during Manchester United’s poor run of performances.
According to El Nacional, Barcelona’s main priority is to sign Haaland in the summer.
But if they miss out on the 21-year-old Norwegian then next on their list of targets is Man Utd man Fernandes.
Speaking of Haaland, United are no longer interested in signing Borussia Dortmund ace this summer.
The Norway international, 21, is one of the most prolific strikers in Europe after scoring 76 goals in 74 games for his current team.
A host of clubs have been linked with Haaland in recent months, including Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
However, according to the Daily Star, United are not considering making an approach for the highly-rated youngster.
It’s believed Haaland has “set his heart” on a move to Real and the Red Devils have reluctantly accepted his decision.
Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Manchester United in the summer if he does not agree with the new managerial appointment, reports say.
The 36-year-old completed a fairytale return to United in the summer, putting an end to his Juventus nightmare.
Ronaldo has since netted 14 times in 22 appearances but it wasn’t enough to save Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job or solidify United’s place in the top-four.
And according to the Daily Star, Ronaldo’s future beyond the summer depends on who becomes the permanent manager after Ralf Rangnick’s tenure as interim boss comes to an end.
The report states that new chief executive officer Richard Arnold – who replaced Ed Woodward – will now be under pressure to get the appointment spot on.
