Italian website TuttoMercatoWeb have linked Tottenham and Manchester United to teenage sensation Erling Haaland.
The TMW transfer story has also been picked up by the Express, who have repackaged the gossip under the headline:
Tottenham eye shock transfer for Erling Braut Haaland with Jose Mourinho ‘interested’.
For the record, the original TMW article also listed Juventus as potential suitors for Haaland.

Erling Haaland & Borussia Dortmund
Erling Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg in January.

The Norwegian striker is under contract at Signal Iduna Park until 2024.
Mino Raiola: Haaland’s staying put
So will Haaland actually move this summer?
According to his agent, Mino Raiola, that’s not going to happen.
Raiola, who reportedly earned €10 million from the Haaland transfer to Dortmund, recently told Marca (translated in the Daily Mail) that his client is staying at BVB this summer. He said:
He has to continue to grow. He will stay in Dortmund for as long as is necessary.
He is a great player. It is fun to watch him and see how each game develops.
Nobody thought that he would adapt so well to a team like Borussia.
It’s true that he is a footballer who is anticipating the stages of growth faster than you might think.
I don’t think that when he left [Red Bull] Salzburg it was the right time, but… I don’t think he’ll be leaving Dortmund this summer.
