Manchester United might not be able to sign Norweigan striker Erling Braut Haaland as the player is reportedly getting closer to a Juventus move.
Manchester United, who were said to be in pursuit of the player for quite some time will now be forced to go back to the drawing board and find suitable alternatives.
Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a great fan of Haaland and recently he publically admired the player for his talent, possibly in a desperate attempt to woe the forward to Old Trafford. It seems it didn’t work as expected though.
Almost every top club in Europe were said to be interested in the young talent who has Mino Raiola as his agent (you know where it’s going, don’t you). No wonder he isn’t coming to Manchester United.
The 19-year-old has scored 28 goals in 22 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg. However, it came to light earlier this week that the Leeds-born teenager had decided to join Juventus.
And Italian publication Tuttosport have a story on their front page today claiming Haaland has verbally agreed to personal terms on a £6.8million-a-year deal (€8m).
It is claimed the attacker has a £25.5m (€30m) release clause in his current contract – which four clubs met.
