Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has denied he would receive a bonus if he signs Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland for the club.

Haaland is set to be one of the most in-demand players in European football next summer, as a £63 million release clause becomes active.

Reports this week claimed Rangnick would receive a €10m (£8.5m) bonus if he convinces Haaland to make the move to Old Trafford.

When asked on Friday about the reported clause in his contract, the 63-year-old joked: “Let me have a look… £10 million for Erling Haaland, £10m for Kylian Mbappe, £10m for Robert Lewandowski, £10m for Joshua Kimmich.

“This is nonsense obviously, there are no such clauses in my contract.

“I’m more than happy [with the squad]. The offensive strike power we have here, all of the offensive players we have here, quite a few of them didn’t play yesterday [against Arsenal] – Martial only came on in the last five minutes, Mason [Greenwood] didn’t play at all. We have so many top players in the offensive department that we don’t need to speak about any other players.”
