Liverpool will be interested with the latest transfer news on Erling Haaland as it may be that he’s not heading to Manchester United after all.
Norwegian marksmen Erling Haaland has reportedly set a deadline to decide his future ahead of the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old Red Bull Salzburg striker is in amazing form this season in front of goal. With many clubs interested in signing the youngster, Manchester United are leading the race to acquire his services.
According to Bild, as translated by Sport witness, Haaland wants his future sorted within the next week. Guardian also reports that Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are also chasing the Norway international.
According to journalist Kevin Palmer, Haaland has in fact chosen to join RB Leipzig instead of the Red Devils, which is an interesting move given the Bundesliga club’s own issues upfront.
Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig confirmed they had made a £20 million offer for him as part of an arrangement with their sister club where they can pick him up on the cheap.
Leipzig currently have the excellent Timo Werner in their attack, but he’s been linked with a move away so it may be that Haaland is coming in to replace him.
According to the Daily Star, Liverpool have already begun formal negotiations over signing Werner.
Timo Werner will be a good signing for Klopp’s side and the German can fit into the side early. However, it won’t be soothing news to Red Devils missing out on Haaland and their rivals getting stronger.
But United are hopeful he will snub a move to Germany and move to England, according to The Sun. On the other hand, Red Bull Salzburg wants to continue its campaign run with Haaland until the end of the season.
Even if United win the race to sign Haaland with a £76 offer, the Norwegian will have to be loaned back.
Haaland looks ideal to come in and ease the pressure on Rashford and Martial. Solskjaer definitely lacks in options to rotate in this squad after losing Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in summer.
The Saga will come to an end next week since the Norwegian has given a week deadline to decide his future.
