If Manchester United want to get their hands on Erling Haaland in 2022, they will have to pay around £ 91 million, a report claims.
Haaland, 20 years old, He burst onto the scene with RB Salzburg last season and scored 28 goals in 22 games for the Austrian side.
That alerted almost all the best clubs in Europe to Manchester United and Liverpool interested in Alf-Inge Haaland’s son.
United were strongly linked to Haaland and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had ties to the couple’s time player in Molde together.
However, Borussia Dortmund managed the transfer in January. The Bundesliga side paid Haaland’s release clause of € 22.5 million, and at the same time he gave the forward’s advisor, Mino Raiola, a payment of 10 million euros.
The payment to Raiola was believed to be one of the difficult points for United as they sought a transfer for the Norwegian.
Since then, Haaland has scored 33 goals in 32 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 17 goals in 14 outings this season.
It is understood that United is still following the forward, who has a £ 64 million release clause in his deal that takes effect in the summer of 2022.
However, the fee would not stop there. Sports world suggests that United would have to pay £ 18 million in various commissions and fees, including to Raiola.
