Erling Haaland’s wage demands have reportedly emerged amid growing interest from Manchester United, as the club’s new football director John Murtough thinks the striker is the perfect long-term replacement for Romelu Lukaku.
The 20-year-old’s stock has risen sharply since he joined Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg for £18million in January last year, with the striker having scored an incredible 49 goals in as many games for the Bundesliga club.
With Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona also keen on Haaland, he is reportedly demanding a whopping paycheck of £350,000 per week.
And according to the Manchester Evening News, United have made the youngster their top priority despite the huge costs involved.
Haaland has made 31 appearances for Dortmund this season, having scored 33 goals and provided 8 assists.
