City and United are among the clubs around Europe keeping tabs on the Borussia Dortmund starlet ahead of a potential summer move.
But the Blues believe they have the edge over their cross-town rivals.
Pep Guardiola's team reckon the 15 per cent sell-on clause they have on Dortmund star Sancho could help them snap up Haaland.
Per a report from The Sun, it is likely to be worth £15 million with the Bundesliga outfit valuing the England international at around £120 million.
Meaning they could agree to waiver or renegotiate that in order to gain leverage over other clubs in their pursuit of the Norwegian forward.

City could agree to waiver or renegotiate that in order to gain an advantage over other clubs pursuing Haaland.
City are looking for a new frontman as they seek to find a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, who is struggling with fitness issues this season.
The 32-year-old has played just five Premier League games this campaign and has yet to score in the league.
Haaland appears to be the man who the Etihad club want with the 20-year-old available for £65 million in the summer of 2022.
But Dortmund know some of his suitors will knock on the door for him this summer to avoid missing out on the phenom.

Haaland has enjoyed an ultra-prolific spell at Dortmund since signing in January 2020, scoring an incredible 25 goals in 25 league games.
He's already on 19 goals in all competitions this season.
