Manchester United miss out on wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland who signs with Borussia Dortmund



Manchester United miss out on wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland who has signed with Borussia Dortmund from Austrian club RB Salzburg and was officially unveiled on Sunday.

The 19-year-old joins die Schwarzgelben for an incredibly low price of £18m with Dortmund beating out European giants such as United, Juventus and Real Madrid for his signature.

The Red Devils were one of the favourites to sign the in-form striker this winter with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously manager Haaland at Norwegian club Molde.

The former United striker saw the development of Haaland when he was 16 and promoted him to the first team as he was impressed with the talent of the target man.

The recently capped Norwegian striker has scored an incredible amount of goals this season in both the Austrian Bundesliga and the Champions League.

He has scored 28 and assisted 7 goals in just 22 appearances for the Salzburg in all competitions and has been breaking records at a phenomenal rate.

The striker first caught the eye of clubs prior to the season where he scored nine goals in a single match at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup for Norway in the summer.

He carried his great goalscoring form into the season and has scored 16 goals in the league in just 14 appearances and has helped Salzburg stay unbeaten and at the top of the table in the Austrian Bundesliga.

However, it has been his form in Europe’s most elite competition that has caught the eye of the footballing world and the best clubs in the world.

Haaland is the second top goalscorer in the Champions League so far with 8 goals in just 6 group stage games against the likes of Napoli as well as the reigning European champions and unbeaten Premier League leaders Liverpool.

With his great strength, aerial ability and finishing quality on show, Europe’s top clubs became very interested and caused a wild goose chase for Haaland’s signature.

It was reported that United and Solskjaer met with Haaland to convince him to move to Old Trafford and help the Red Devils qualify for the Champions League.

Dortmund, however, are already able to offer Champions League football as they qualified second in their group edging out Serie A leaders Inter Milan in the process.

Lucien Favre’s side have now added an extra dimension to their frontline and will look to Haaland to help them fire them to their first Bundesliga title since 2012.
