Manchester United will remain one of the clubs in the pursuit of Erling Haaland in the middle of next year. Even the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo did not affect.
The Daily Express reports that Haaland remains a prime target for Manchester United, which has long been keeping an eye on the Borussia Dortmund forward, despite factors. That may result in the loss of interest, but the Red Devils will still be one of the clubs vying for the Norwegian national team striker next summer for sure.
Manchester United signing of Cristiano Ronaldo no affect for Haaland
News reports indicate that Ronaldo’s move in the last corner of the summer transfer market. It will not affect Manchester United’s decision to make an offer to buy Haaland in the middle of next year. And there is no fear of facing rival teams like Real Madrid or Manchester City.
As of next summer, Haaland’s €75 million release clause in his contract with Dortmund will be activated. So Manchester United will not have to spend money on other teams exaggerated. The only obstacle is negotiating a personal contract with the player’s agent Mino Raiola. According to reports by ufabet
United came close to buying him in January 2020 when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who coached Haaland at Molde, flew to Austria for talks with his fellow Norwegian. But the Red Bull Salzburg striker made a £19.5m move to Dortmund instead.
City were put off by Dortmund’s asking price in excess of £150m this summer. But they are almost certain to be in the market when the fee is slashed in May — even more so after missing out on Ronaldo and Harry Kane last month. Europe’s other top clubs will also enter the bidding.
Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek’s agent has challenged United to honour their promise of giving him more playing time. After it emerged that the club rejected a loan move to Everton late on deadline day.
