Manchester United contacted Erling Haaland with the ambitious proposal as the season put unfortunate pressure on them.
Erling Haaland has been the headliner for the last few seasons in the transfer market since his rise in Dortmund. The Norwegian is the attractive pick for the reputed sides of Europe in the window. Ole’s Manchester United fell in love with the player long back and it is still refreshing the mood of Old Trafford scouts.
The year 2021 is special for Red Devils as the league table is good looking for them as of now. Also, the last year’s incoming Bruno Fernandez is valued as one of the best business done by United in the transfer market. The pressure has been out of control and Ole hardly misses some spark in the frontline. The current forward line is working fine but not upto a champion mark.
The title clash is with Champions Liverpool and in order to match that level of attacking options, United should add more. The transfer window is open amidst the financial crisis facing by the teams due to the global pandemic and Old Trafford has preferred its legacy over finance.
Project Borussia for Europe
Bundesliga top side Borussia Dortmund has been the recruitment base for young talents over past years and most of the agents from top sides land Signal Iduna Park for transfer windows. Last year it was Jadon Sancho that leading the transfer market with 100 million taglines and now it is Erling Haaland.
The project Sancho by Manchester United didn’t work last year and this time they are more serious with the Haaland plan. As per the updates from Don Balon, United approached Mino Raiola, an agent of Erling Haaland with a proposal. But the Paul Pogba saga is remaining a stain in the profile of Raiola as Old Trafford is not at all happy with the story.
The 20-year-old striker has got an exceptional profile in Germany and it is more than enough to sweep a record-breaking transfer in the January window. The player has valued over 100 million Euros and the admirers are ready to break the bank for one of the promising future of the game.
Contenders for Old Trafford in the project
Frank Lampard has been purchasing all possible options available in the transfer market and another player in the forward line is unlikely to happen for Chelsea. But rumors are strong enough from West London as they are pushing hard for a title after such great spending in the transfer market.
Another major threat for Red Devils is the Los Blancos. Zinedine Zidane is sticking to his previous tactics and Madrid is facing a transformation stage in terms of the hat-trick champion squad.
The first eleven won three European titles is aging and Madrid is looking for the perfect replacement for those. Especially the midfield line of Zidane including Modrich and Kroos should find someone similar to their potential.
Paul Pogba was added to the talks for a long time by the presence of Zinedine Zidane and chances are still high for that move. A long time replacement Cristiano Ronaldo is the first preference for Madrid.
The stunning form of Karim Benzema is taking care of Madrid’s attacking but he is also on verge of his exit. Kylian Mbappe was the secret intention of Florentino Perez but PSG is strict with the Frenchmen and he also enjoyed the time in Paris.
The race for Erling Haaland is not easy for United, but the money game will result in some unexpected set of acts. The pressure is on Raiola as Haaland has a contract till 2023 with Dortmund and a release clause will be active by the end of the season. (Caughtoffside)
