Manchester United News: Luke Chadwick claims Man Utd could pair Haaland with Cristiano Ronaldo Speaking to Caughtoffside, Luke Chadwick has suggested that Manchester United could pair Erling Haaland with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. He said “I think for this season you wouldn’t swap Ronaldo for anyone. But I understand that Haaland would probably be signed on a five/six-year contract and would hopefully do it over that period of time.”
He further added “We’ll see how Cristiano goes this season. There’s still the opportunity [to sign Haaland], I don’t think Haaland was ever going to go anywhere this summer, so perhaps there’s still that opportunity. The way that Haaland speaks about Cristiano as well, it might all be part of a master plan for him to come in next summer.”
Manchester United News: Luke Chadwick on Haaland Erling Haaland rose to prominence at Red Bull Salzburg. He featured in 27 matches and scored an impressive 29 goals for them in all competitions. However, many clubs across Europe were tracking Erling Haaland. Manchester United were holding a strong interest in him.
Eventually, Borussia Dortmund signed the Norwegian international in the January transfer window of 2020. The German giants conducted an impressive business by signing Haaland for just €20 million. The forward became a key part of the squad right after joining the team.
The 21-year-old scored a hat-trick in his debut game against FC Augsburg. He came from the bench for Borussia Dortmund in the second half and scored the hat-trick within 23 minutes.
The sensational youngster scored 13 goals in his very first season in the Bundesliga. He has so far scored 66 goals in 66 matches for Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester United News: Many clubs are interested in Erling Haaland Many clubs are also tracking Erling Haaland Though Erling Haaland managed to stay at Borussia Dortmund this season, the same cannot be said for next summer. Nearly every club knows that the release clause of Haaland will be down to £64 million next summer.
Hence, many clubs across Europe are already preparing to make a move for him. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Chelsea have already listed him as their number one target. However, the Blues were close to signing him this summer after bidding £130 million. But Borussia Dortmund were not ready to sell him which is why the deal never went ahead.
Manchester United will be looking to bring him under the long-term solution. Both their primary strikers, Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo are nearing the end of their football careers. The Red Devils will be looking at the 21-year-old footballer as a replacement for both the aging strikers.
Similarly, many clubs will want to sign Erling Haaland under the long-term plan. The player is only 21-year-old and he will only get better with time and regular football.
