REVEALED: Why Erling Haaland did NOT move to Man United?

Manchester United have reportedly offered Red Bull Salzburg three times more money for Erling Haaland’s move, but Mino Raiola was the key factor that Norwegian international finally moved to Borussia Dortmund. 

Haaland, who has impressed the European football this season, has joined Borussia Dortmund in January after the German side paid his £17 m release-clause. 

The 19-year-old striker has since scored 9 goals in 6 Bundesliga games and netted a double in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Paris-Saint Germain to overshadow Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. 

Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer, who worked with Haaland at the Norwegian side Molde, wanted to work with the forward again, while the club offered Salzburg over £50 m for the move. 

And as reported by the Daily Mail, Man United wanted to bypass Erling’s agent Mino Raiola and make the deal with his father, which, eventually became the key factor why the player did not join the Red Devils. 

Meanwhile, Manchester United are preparing for their Europa League clash against Club Brugge after the draw in Belgium.
