So, it is not surprising that the Red Devils are still after his signature and the latest reports are intriguing.
According to an exclusive report covered by The Daily Star, Man Utd have been told that they will need to offer a five year contract worth £78million (£300,000-a-week) to agree a deal with Erling Haaland.

On top of the above mentioned wages, The Star claim that it would require an enormous fee of £100million to get his signing done this summer.
At the weekend, the young center forward scored a brace against Schalke and so far, in all competitions this term, he has directly contributed in 34 goals (27 goals and 7 assists) in just 25 starts for BvB. Last season, he netted 44 goals in just 40 appearances. For Norway, so far, in 6 starts, he has scored as many goals.
If Man Utd do agree to a contract worth £300,000-a-week to sign Haaland then he will become the second best paid player at Old Trafford after David De Gea, who gets around £375,000-a-week (The Sun).
For now, the star striker is only earning a weekly salary of £130,000 (The Mail). So, he wants to get his wages more than doubled to complete his next move. In your opinion, does he deserve such a bumper pay rise?
