Manchester United have set their sights on Erling Haaland for the next year. Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects the Norwegian to move to the Premier League.
Erling Haaland will find the lure of playing in the Premier League impossible to resist, claims Wenger. The Borussia Dortmund striker has drawn the attention of Europe’s top teams including Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
English teams, however, are not the only ones in the frame. Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also considering a move for the Leeds-born star.
Manchester United await moment to swoop up Haaland
Haaland has established himself as one of the most prolific goalscorers in world football over recent seasons. A £68,000,000 release clause activates in the forward’s contract next summer. This is sure to spark a scramble for his services.
Wenger believes Haaland will return to his country of birth, telling Bild Live: “I think that will happen. The economic power of the Premier League is too strong.“
“English football is dominant because it is where the most money is. The best players always go the best way to make the most money.”
The Frenchman has tipped the forward to be the next high-profile goal-scorer. He has termed Haaland as a “super talent“.
Wenger goes on to say that his will to score goals and the ability to fight in a duel sets him apart. He adds that the Norwegian is there to win and something within makes him a great striker.
Since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, Haaland has scored 63 times in 64 competitive games.
He is already off to a flying start this season, netting 3 times and registering 2 assists in as many Bundesliga matches. Haaland bagged a goal for Norway as they drew 1-1 with Netherlands on Wednesday.
