Super agent Mino Raiola reportedly held a meeting with Manchester United through his client Erling Haaland.
What do we know for sure about Mino Raiola’s transfer tour?
It was previously reported that Haaland’s father Alf-Inge and the Dortmund star’s agent had traveled to Spain to speak to Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Images popped up of the couple arriving in Catalonia and excitement began to develop about where Haaland could play his football next season.
Haaland representatives were believed to be holding talks with both clubs in Manchester, but there is little physical evidence that such meetings actually take place.
Did Man United meet with Raiola?
United are hoping to bring Haaland to Manchester and he has been named as one of the club’s top priorities.
While there isn’t much evidence that Raiola met with the Red Devils, it appears that the trip actually took place.
Raiola visited both Barca and Madrid publicly but a story has surfaced mentioning the agent’s trip to the English coasts.
Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed Raiola and Haaland’s father traveled to “Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and United”.
So it seems that the Red Devils are still very much in the running for the 20-year-old’s signature this summer.
Will Haaland definitely be on the move this summer?
It is not entirely certain that Haaland will be on the move in the months ahead. For Dortmund, however, this makes financial sense.
Haaland reportedly has a £ 68m release clause that will be activated next summer. Given that the Norwegian could allegedly leave Dortmund for £ 128m, the German club might be tempted to let him go in the next window for a much higher transfer fee.
Would Haaland be a better signing for Man United than Kane?
The Tottenham talisman has also been linked to a move to Old Trafford as Spurs is expected to spend their second straight season in the Europa League.
It has been reported that Kane could potentially cost the Red Devils more than £ 125m and Daniel Levy is reluctant to sell to another Premier League club.
With the finances involved, United should focus on getting Haaland to Old Trafford. Both players have incredible goalscoring records, but the Norwegian is seven years younger than Kane.
It seems difficult to pay a nine-figure sum for a player who arguably only has six years left at the top while Haaland could have been United’s striker for more than a decade.
