Manchester United have reportedly already set the wheels in motion to secure the blockbuster signing of Erling Haaland in 2022 – and apparently have an ace card that will help them win the race to his signature.
Haaland, 21, is already one of the most valued assets in world football. Since moving to Dortmund in 2020, the rangy hitman has operated with exactly one goal per. Match. He has started the current season with a bang and chopped five goals and three assists from his first three outings.
As such, it came as no surprise to see Haaland connect with Europe’s elite clubs over the summer. However, having already lost Jadon Sancho to Man Utd, Dortmund were determined to retain their clinical striker.
And it seems that Haaland is apparently destined to stay at Westfalenstadion until next summer at the earliest.
However, with an exit clause coming into force in 2022, it looks like Dortmund will retain its services beyond that. According to widespread reports, this release fee is set at a tempting € 75 million. – although bonuses owned by his agent Mino Raiola will take the fee much higher.
Despite it is Daily mail insists that United will make Haaland their ‘priority signature’ in 2022. And they state that there is still a growing faith around Old Trafford that they can finally bring their man in.
Previously frozen relationships with Raiola seem to ease. He has often crossed paths with United in the past, especially over Paul Pogba. However, the Frenchman now seems settled and there seems to be a new deal on the cards.
Despite Cristiano Ronaldo receiving big salaries this summer, United are still determined to add Haaland to their mix.
Many doubted United’s need to further strengthen an attack that now boasts Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood – all of whom are capable of playing in front.
However, is Mail insists that United remain focused on reuniting Haaland with its former Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
In addition, the newspaper claims that Haaland is a huge admirer of Ronaldo. And they inform Portuguese signature at Old Trafford in fact, increases their chances of conquering Haaland, rather than preventing it.
