According to ExpressHaaland wants his next club to pay him a salary of £ 350,000 a week. If Manchester United agreed to pay him such an exorbitant salary, it would make the 20-year-old the club’s best earner alongside David de Gea.
Haaland’s meteoric rise in football has made him one of the most sought-after players around. The Norwegian has shown no signs of slowing down and is arguably one of the best young footballers in the world right now. Manchester United were close to securing his services ahead of his move to Dortmund but remain committed to securing his man this time around.
The Red Devils have struggled to find the perfect candidate to lead their offense lately. Anthony Martial blew hot and cold, while young Mason Greenwood is still learning the ropes. The two of them have managed just five Premier League goals this season. Edinson Cavani has been a good addition to the Manchester United squad, but he is at the end of his career.
As such, Manchester United’s rush to secure Haaland’s signing is justified. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and new football manager John Murtough have made the Norwegian striker their number one goal this summer. However, the Red Devils aren’t the only club to watch Haaland closely.
Manchester United have a unique advantage in the race to sign Haaland
Chelsea are also watching Haaland, as Thomas Tuchel aims to add a world-class striker to his kitty this summer. Manchester City are already on the hunt for the perfect successor to club legend Sergio Aguero.
Barcelona are also interested in the Norwegian, although his financial situation makes a decision highly unlikely. Real Madrid also retain an interest in the youngster, although his main target is Kylian Mbappe. However, Manchester United have a unique advantage over the entire competition in their pursuit of the player.
It is believed that Solskjaer’s proximity to Haaland could turn the tide in favor of the Red Devils. The Manchester United manager worked with the young striker during their time at Molde. Solskjaer’s refusal to engage in a war of words with player Mino Raiola’s agent could also prove to be a wise move in a larger context.
