United withdrew from the pursuit of Haaland

Manchester United withdrew from the race to sign Erling Braut Haaland because of concerns about how the deal was structured.

Haaland, who joined Borussia Dortmund from RB Leipzig, was the target of UK boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But United withdrew from the race to sign the nineteen-year-old striker amid how much money for the deal would go to Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola, and the player’s father.

Those concerns over payments and the terms of the deal forced United to withdraw, leaving the way clear for Dortmund to sign the striker, who has eight goals in six Champions League games this season.

It is understood that Raiola and Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, will receive a share of any future transfer costs involving the young striker, according to the terms of the agreement agreed with Dortmund.
