More than two weeks ago, Calciomercato explained Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid will ‘start an auction’ for Erling Haaland after Juventus were left behind in the chase for the Borussia Dortmund star.
Mino Raiola, the striker’s advisor told BBC that only 10 clubs are capable of signing the 20-year-old and this includes four Premier League clubs.
Earlier today, we relayed news from Germany that Chelsea only have a slim chance of signing Haaland.
Despite Raiola’s comments, this week’s SportBild says the ‘truth’ is the Norway international himself sees the possibility to join only six clubs and the Red Devils are included in it.
Other than Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are on the list.
A move to Old Trafford will see Haaland reunite with his former manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The United boss recently admitted he is in regular contact with his compatriot.
The magazine also explains the striker’s situation and also the details of his contract, which will expire in 2024.
The player has a release clause of €100m, but it will only come into effect after the end of the next season. For now, he is valued at €110m.
SportBild further state, ‘A farewell at the end of the season is currently not an issue’.
Haaland, for his part, is not ready to take an intermediate step before making a move to the big club. He is looking to join ‘an absolute top club’ and ‘wants to be convinced of the overall package’ to join a ‘top club’.
It remains to be seen whether or not United can convince Haaland to join them with their ‘overall package’, whenever he decides to leave Dortmund.
