Interest in Erling continues to build, with LaLiga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid also on a growing list of suitors.
Haaland will have a big impact
Paul Scholes fears that Manchester United may miss out on the ‘perfect’ Erling Haaland transfer, as there remains “every chance” of the BVB striker has to head to rivals Manchester City. Interest in Erling continues to build, with LaLiga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid also on a growing list of suitors. Man United have explored signing Haaland in the past and boast the trump card of Solskjaer at the Red Devils, but securing the most sought-after signatures promises to be tough – especially since high spending neighbours are also sniffing around. “He will have a big impact,” Manchester United legend Paul Scholes told reporters about Haaland’s linking to the Red Devils. “Do I think it is happening? I think there is every chance that he will join Man City.”
Manchester United desperately looking for a No. 9
“I don’t know, but there is a relationship with Ole that he’s had in the past. Although I heard this morning, we all know how good he is that he hasn’t scored in six games, which worries him slightly. Listen, Man United desperately looking for a No 9, an all-out centre-forward. Haaland would be a perfect choice; of course, he would. There are a couple of other players who would also do that job as well. Also, you have to think about his father referring Man City. It could be strong in this situation. Let’s see. Fingers crossed, if Haaland leaves, he comes to the red side of Manchester.” As speculation began to build about the future of the 20-year-old, Dortmund have been eager to point out that they had no intention of selling.
Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, has been conducting a tour of Europe as he negotiates with several interested parties. Man United would have been among those already boast ties to Raiola through another of his high-profile clients, France international midfielder Paul Pogba.
