Ralf Rangnick’s contract with Manchester United is believed to contain a bonus of €10m (£8.5m) if he convinces Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland to join the club.

The incoming interim boss has a good relationship with Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, and was instrumental in the deal that took Haaland from Malmo to Salzburg in 2019 when he was the global sports director for Red Bull.

United hope that Rangnick’s presence may give them a boost in their pursuit of Haaland, and according to Bild, there is also a nice cash incentive for Rangnick to get a deal over the line.

A cool £8.5m is up for grabs if Rangnick can sign Haaland ahead of other suitors like Manchester City and Real Madrid.

The report suggests that Haaland only ended up at Borussia Dortmund in 2020 because Rangnick was not involved in the negotiations and could not convince the striker to join RB Leipzig instead – something which the former director regrets to this day.
