Manchester United informed of huge add-ons required to buy Haaland

Erling Haaland

If Manchester United want to get their hands on Erling Haaland in 2022 they will have to pay around £91m, claims a report.

Haaland, 20, burst on to the scene with RB Salzburg last season and blasted 28 goals in 22 games for the Austrian side.

That alerted just about every top club in Europe with Manchester United and Liverpool interested in the son of Alf-Inge Haaland.

United were heavily linked with Haaland with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have links with the player from the pair’s time at Molde together.

Borussia Dortmund though got the transfer done in January. The Bundesliga side paid Haaland’s release clause of €22.5m, while also handing the striker’s advisor, Mino Raiola a €10m payment.

The payment to Raiola was believed to be one of the sticking points for United as they pursued a transfer for the Norwegian.

Haaland has since struck 33 times in 32 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 17 goals in 14 outings this season.

United are understood to be still tracking the forward, who has £64m release clause in his deal which comes into effect in the summer of 2022.




However, the fee would not stop there. Mundo Deportivo suggest United would have to pay out £18m in various agency and commission fees, including to Raiola.

They would also have to pay £9m to Haaland’s family, including his father – former Leeds star Alf-Inge Haaland.

Solskjaer knows Haaland poised to smash record

Real Madrid and Barcelona are also believed to be interested in the Dortmund star, who has 16 goals in Europe.

United boss Solskjaer holds the record for a Norwegian, but he knows his record will soon be gone.

Solskjaer said: “He’ll beat it and very quickly, that’s for sure!

“The boy has had a great start to his career. It was really good to work with him, see the potential in him and some part of me feels proud in having a little input in a rise.”
