Man Utd facing roadblock to sign Haaland

Manchester United facing massive roadblock in attempt to sign Haaland

December 10, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The 19-year-old footballer is set to leave Red Bull Salzburg this winter, but the Red Devils might not be able to complete his transfer.

If Manchester United fans thought that signing Erling Haaland would be an easy grab due to his low-cost buyout clause, this article will leave them a bit disappointed.

According to a report by The Athletic, Manchester United was quite interested in signing the talented Norwegian starlet, but their past experiences working with the player's agent may see their interest fading away. The name of the agent? Mino Raiola.

The report suggests that working with the Italian agent has not been easy for Manchester United, since he has a tendency to think of his own personal benefit. Furthermore, his desire to take Paul Pogba away from the club has damaged his relationship with Ed Woodward, Man United's chairman, and any deal where Raiola is involved might be frowned upon by the team's hierarchy.

Furthermore, Raiola is keen on letting Haaland join a team from one of Europe's top five leagues under his current buyout clause, but he does not want him to join Manchester United or any other EPL team. Raiola's reasons to do so have to do with a better deal for his client if he continues to excel in another league before joining a La Liga or Premier League side.

So, even if Manchester United seems determined to land the striker, it seems highly unlikely to see him at Old Trafford this January.
