Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has refused to deny reports that new signing Erling Haaland has a £51million release clause in his contract.
Manchester United could make a fresh move to land the Norwegian striker in the summer after reports emerged that Dortmund included a release clause in his deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to be reunited with the 19-year-old striker, who he worked with during his stint in charge of Norwegian side Molde.

But Haaland decided to join Dortmund after the Bundesliga side paid his £18m release clause from Red Bull Salzburg.
However the deal would not have gone without Dortmund inserting a release clause in his four-and-a-half-year deal, according to Sky Germany.
Dortmund chief Michael Zorc refused to comment on the report but he insisted that Haaland would be at the club for the foreseeable future.
He said: ‘We never comment on contract details.
‘Assume that he will play football with us for a longer period of time.’
