Erling Haaland insists that claims Manchester United pulled out of the race for him due to excessive wage demands are “comical”.

The player had been linked with United but joined Borussia Dortmund last month.

He scored eight goals in 270 minutes across his five appearances so far.

“Ole has been very important for me in getting to where I am today,” Haaland stated in an interview with Viasport . “But we concluded that Dortmund was the best option for me. That was where I felt best about, and therefore it became Dortmund.”

Pressed on the rumours that United baulked at his wage demands, the Leeds-born attacker dismissed such reports, adding: “No, it’s the guys writing would have to speak to that. They’ll have to explain it to me if they meet me. It’s not my focus, whatsoever.

“It’s kind of comical if I were to get that label. All the people closest to me know that’s not the kind of person I am.”
