Man Utd, Erling Haaland and a potential transfer in 2022

3

Erling Haaland has not yet made a decision about his future, despite reports that Manchester United have withdrawn from the race to sign him because he has chosen to join Real Madrid.

Haaland has quickly elevated himself to world-class – confirmed by 90-minute readers in December – after proving at Borussia Dortmund that the form he showed when he ran onto the stage with RB Salzburg was no blink.

The 21-year-old’s flashy goal statistics are begging, to be honest, and he currently sits on 19 goals in all competitions from just 15 appearances. It has taken him up to 76 goals in just 74 games for Dortmund since joining in January 2020 – proof that he has the consistency, points and hunger to truly become one of the world’s best strikers.

The Norwegian has an estimated 63 million pound release clause in his Dortmund contract that will be active this summer, which means that the Bundesliga giants can do little to prevent him from leaving when a matching offer comes.

It’s a question of when, not if, a bid will come in, but it remains to be seen whether United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool or PSG (we could continue) look like make the first official move.

One thing that 90min can confirm is that reports that Haaland has already chosen Real Madrid as the next destination are hasty, and Manchester United are definitely not looking to sign him.

The Red Devils’ interest is well documented and regardless of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s resignation as coach at the end of last year, they are still interested in taking Haaland to Old Trafford and have not backed off the negotiating table.

Agent Mino Raiola continues to hold informal talks with all interested parties, but Haaland is currently no closer to choosing where to play his football after leaving Dortmund.

The obvious stumbling block for clubs that want to attract Haaland other than United and Real Madrid is his future salaries. His infallible ability means that he can master characters among the very best in the game, which can exclude those like Liverpool and Manchester City (yes, Manchester City) due to their regimented salary structures and how they like to run their respective companies.

Combine that with the fact that while £ 63m may be the transfer fee, Haaland will receive a significant sign-up fee, substantial bonuses and other contract details – and that’s before agency fees are taken into account. Basically, the winner of the race is looking at a transfer worth £ 200m + all things considered; something United can absolutely afford considering their financial muscle.
