Juventus beat Manchester United in Haaland’s chase

If the reports from Italian media outlets are to believe, Juventus are in the pole position to sign Erling Braut Haaland. This news has come as a shock for Manchester United fans who thought the player might be on his way to Old Trafford.

The Britain sports outlet, Mirror suggests that the transfer deal between Haaland and Manchester United is broken because of the intervention of super-agent, Mino Raiola. It is believed that the player has offers from clubs like Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig too.

Italian outlet, Tuttusport, claims that Juventus are on top of the list to sign Erling Braut Halland because of their “good” relationship with Mino Raiola. It is worth to note that Mino Raiola is also the agent of Red Devils’ superstar, Paul Pogba.

Another Italian outlet, Corriere dello Sport, suggests that Juventus are signing the Salzburg’s ace because their manager wanted to go after the player as Mario Mandzukic has reportedly signed a deal with the middle east club, Al Duhail.

Talking about the player, RB Leipzig’s patron, Oliver Mintlaff said;

Yes, we met with him. We are interested in the player, [there is] great interest there, 

It’s not easy. There’s Manchester United, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund and a few other clubs as well.

And I have named the clubs that compete, and there may be salary regions that we don’t want to go into. [The fee] is still manageable, but the package does not only consist of the transfer fee,”

It’s the same cliche again – we can buy everything and we can get everything and we can do everything. Unfortunately, we can’t, otherwise, Haaland would already be with us

It is reported that the RB Salzburg’s player will sign a five-year contract with Bianconeri worth £3m a season plus bonuses.

On the other hand, Manchester United are trying to put up huge wages of approximately $259,000 for the former Molde player in order to lure him towards Old Trafford. It remains interesting to see which way the player goes as Mino Raiola and Ed Woodward have a bad relationship because of Paul Pogba.
