Manchester United are considered to have lost money, because they missed the opportunity to recruit players like Erling Haaland. If only the opportunity was exploited, the Red Devils have the opportunity to cut the distance with rivals, including Manchester City.
After the departure of Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer market in 2019 yesterday, Manchester United looked to need a central striker. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a bit overwhelmed by relying on Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
Finally, in the January 2020 winter transfer market, Solksjaer seemed struggling to get a brand-new striker. The Norwegian manager is believed to really crave the services of young RB Salzburg striker, Erling Braut Haaland.
As the information sounds, Solksjaer even flew directly to Austria only to meet with the 19-year-old player. Unfortunately, the offer submitted by the manager was felt to be less attractive by Haaland.
Finally, the player who is originated from Norway, has joined Borussia Dortmund through a pocket of 23 million Euros.
His appearance with Die Borussen looked very satisfying. He scored 12 goals in just 11 matches in the German Bundesliga.
Not surprisingly, Manchester United is now called the party who bites fingers watching the glorious performance of the young Norwegian player. They should have taken advantage of the golden opportunity in the transfer market last winter to recruit him.
Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Ince did not hesitate to criticize his former club for granted such a golden opportunity. If only exerted all their abilities, they could get a striker who is able to help the club cut its distance with rivals.
“If they want to close the gap in Manchester City and Liverpool then they need a world class striker. They had a chance with Haaland, the young man who went to Dortmund, it was really sad.
“He is a very, very good young player who can improve quality and you can’t let someone like that slip through the net. It was disappointing because they could not get it. They must have someone who gets 20-25 goals every season,” said Ince.
