Record-breaking battle to happen as Manchester United target Haaland ‘will be leaving Dortmund’ at the end of the season
Manchester United target Erling Haaland is set to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.
Haaland is easily one of the most in-demand players in the game right now and has already netted 19-goals this season for Dortmund, a number that puts him up with some of the most deadly strikers in world football right now.
There is alot of interest in the young man as his stock continues to grow, with Man Utd set to battle the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City for the signature of Haaland when he comes onto that transfer market.
Now, according to Cat Radio, the striker’s kingping Mino Raiola is on the lookout for his next club, with the reports suggesting that the big striker has told his agent to start looking for his next club.
The news will come as a massive boost to United, who have recently been told by Michael Owen that they need to sign Haaland, The former striker told Stadium Astro: “If you look at the recent past of Manchester United, they have been buying a lot of players that have been coming to the twilight of their career – when you look at Cavani, before that Ibrahimovic, before that Van Persie, Henrik Larsson.
“They have gone for players right at the end of their career. The last one they bought early on in their career is Wayne Rooney. At least then you have got a player that is going to last you for 10 years.
“At the moment, Manchester United have struggled to find that young player that is going to take them all the way as a No 9. I think the one player out there that springs to mind, a player that could be in their team for 10 years and stop them having to buy stop-gaps all the time, is Haaland at Dortmund. He is the player on everybody’s lips at the moment.”
If this report is true and Haaland is looking for his next club, then Man Utd need to make sure they have the funds to get a deal done as they simply cannot miss out on trying to sign this lad.
