Erling Haaland has been the prime player in the books of many clubs, Manchester United have their eyes set on him. Haaland is one of the players whose transfer news have been making headlines for two weeks now. Ahead of the transfer window 2022/23, he allegedly has a £63m release clause in his contract. Manchester City, Real Madrid Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Manchester United are some of the clubs which are mostly linked in transfer speculations that would take the Norway international away from Dortmund.
Barcelona are another major club linked with a transfer for Erling Haaland. With the arrival of Xavi, there have been consistent demands to improve the attacking line. This is coming after Kun Aguero was forced to retire from football as a result of heart complications which would not allow him to continue playing at the top level. Luis Suarez plays for Athletico Madrid while the club’s best player of all time, Lionel Messi, already plays for Paris Saint Germain in a transfer that made headlines after strong bargains with the La Liga body and series of other internal financial constraints.
Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola, had earlier suggested that Manchester United are not in for Erling Haaland, the arrival of a new manager has changed all that and with the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, it would be a dream come true for Erling Haaland who sees Ronaldo as a role model and a great influence in his football style.
According to Bild, Manchester United, the 20-time English Champions are presently the major bidders for Erling Haaland. Chelsea had gone on to re-sign Romelu Lukaku in a transfer that led the Belgian forward to fulfill his dream of becoming the star forward for Chelsea Football Club. Barcelona are presently fizzled with series of major financial problems ranging from payment of salaries, registration of players, and inability to bring in new signings with high salaries and transfer fees. They have been severally linked to players who would be free in the course of the transfer window or make considerable usage of their stacked academy products. Whilst De Jong and a few others including Ter Stergen are being lined up for sale in the summer or during the 2021 January transfer window, it’s still hard to conclude on the possibility of landing Erling Haaland.

Manchester United were able to secure the signing of Jadon Sancho during the past summer and maintains a very cordial relationship with the club’s cadre. They can easily make an approach for Haaland and make a deal.
Erling Haaland has scored 17 times and registered five assists in 14 appearances in all competitions this season, his impressive contributions to the club have been highly admired by several other clubs, Manchester United are one of the few clubs that would be willing to pay him huge salary with Manchester City still poised on landing Harry Kane. Manchester United are in need of a young striker with Martial seemingly demanding an exit from Old Trafford.
It’s still being expected to see what happens in the near future. Haaland is still a very young player who desires to be at the very top level for a long time. He’s got all that is needed to succeed, and with the nice players available at Manchester United, it will be an opportunity for him to continually improve and make impact in Europe.
