Manchester United may not be in the running to sign Earling Bout Holland this summer, but they will be in the running if he is available in 12 months. Borussia Dortmund forward Chelsea are wanted, but the German club are determined to keep him for at least another season.
Norwegian International has scored 57 goals in 59 appearances for Dortmund, and is on the radar of every top club in Europe. The Bonds are still in the blues to test the club’s commitment, but they have made it clear they will stay at Signal Adona Park until at least next summer.
While more than million 120 million is being negotiated this summer, the Netherlands will be available for more than half that price next summer. Norway International has a release clause of 75 million (.1 64.1 million) which will be activated next summer, which is likely to move every top club in Europe.
According to Manchester Evening News.Ole Gunnar Solskjer is a big fan of the Netherlands and the United boss will have 12 months to convince his country about Old Trafford that he is an ideal step in the development of football. However, the 21-year-old is unlikely to attend a club that does not challenge national and European awards.
The Red Devils outscored Manchester City last season and returned to the Champions League. He has already added former Dutch teammate Judon Sancho from Real Madrid for 73 73 million and Rafael Varane for £ 34 million, making him a strong contender for the title.
Solskir hopes to run for the title this season, which will certainly be a key factor if they want to attract great talent from around the world. Although United have opted to sign a wide forward this season, they will be in the market for a top scorer next summer when they beat Edinson Cavani.
When it comes to the Netherlands, the Norwegian manager will benefit. In addition to being a compatriot, Solskir also managed for a short time during his tenure as Molde’s manager. The United boss recently admitted that he was still in contact with the Dortmund striker.
“When your kids and players come in as coaches, you follow them and I keep in touch with Earling,” Solskjir said back in February. “It’s great to see him become a player. I know he will always work for the better.
“He is a Dortmund player and we just wish him well and see what life will bring later.”
