Manchester United have made Erling Braut Haaland their top transfer target for 2021, according to reports.
Haaland established himself as one of the world’s most deadly strikers over a remarkable 2020 and United’s interest in the Golden Boy winner is nothing new.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the striker who he helped develop while in charge of Molde and wanted to sign him for United last January as he was gearing to leave Red Bull Salzburg.
However, United pulled out of the deal after they refused to agree to a buyout clause and a percentage of future sales going to his agent, Mino Raiola, so he instead moved to Borussia Dortmund who had no such qualms.
The 20-year-old has gone from strength to strength in Germany, with 33 goals in just 32 games, and, according to the Sunday Mirror, United have made him their transfer priority again despite their frosty relationship with Raiola.
The ‘super agent’ also represents Paul Pogba and he caused a stir last month by suggesting that the star midfielder’s time at Old Trafford is over.
