Man Utd fear transfer swoop for Erling Haaland could be scuppered by Mino Raiola

By | 21st September 2019

MANCHESTER UNITED fear their chances of landing Erling Braut Haaland could be dented by super agent Mino Raiola.

United spies watched the Champions League sensation hit a hat-trick in Salzburg’s 6-2 demolition of Genk on Tuesday.

Erling, 19, had a season at Molde under Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the Norwegian is being advised by Raiola, who has been at odds with United over the future of unsettled Paul Pogba.

Raiola’s input was the talk of the English scouts sent to watch the son of former Leeds and Man City player Alf-Inge Haaland.

Erling was born in Leeds during his dad’s playing days.

The teen has played for Norway as a youngster and has already won senior caps.

Raiola’s involvement means a move to Italy could be an option – or La Liga giants Barcelona.

Alf-Inge told Norwegian TV that he would like to see his son try his luck in the Premier League.

Speaking after Erling’s stunning Champions League hat-trick, he stated: “I think most players dream of being in the Premier League at one time or another.

“It’s the league that gets the most attention around, and it has very good quality teams. There is no doubt the Premier League is attractive to him.”
