Manchester United could sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland if they allow Paul Pogba to leave for a “reasonable price” according to AS.
The Madrid based publication claims that as both players are represented by Mino Raiola, it could lead to the Red Devils doing two deals with the superagent.
Raiola is reportedly not on the best terms with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the club missed out on Haaland last January but he is still said to have a good relationship with the Manchester club’s directors.
It means that if Raiola manages to strike a deal for Pogba’s departure from Old Trafford, it could help United finally land Haaland. The Norwegian has been ripping up the Bundesliga since he arrived, racking up 19 goals in 21 appearances.
However, his price tag is likely to be very high. Haaland does have a release clause of €75m (£67m) but that only comes into effect in 2022. Were United to try and sign him earlier than that, they would, once again, have to go up against Dortmund, who they struggled to negotiate with in their talks for Jadon Sancho.
Other clubs, such as Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City have also been mentioned as potential suitors for the striker so we shall have to wait and see what happens.
