Manchester United Missed Out on Signing Haaland for a Mere £4 Million in 2018

MU fans will certainly regret it, if they know that their favorite team has missed the opportunity to recruit “scoring machine” Erling Haaland in the summer of 2018 for only… £4 million!

That is the information that the former Red Devils coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has just shared in the media. Solsa led MU from December 2018 to November 2021 and was also the former coach of Haaland when both worked at Molde.

Haaland joined Man City in the summer of 2022 from Dortmund and is becoming a killer goal for every defense in Europe with a total of 51 goals / 47 games in all competitions for The Citizens this season.

Solskjaer was very happy because of the brilliant brilliance of his former student, but also expressed great regret when the leadership of the Old Trafford team did not listen to his advice in the summer of 2018, about 6 months before Solsa officially started. how to lead MU.

When MU planned to add forces, especially the attack for the 2018/19 season, Solsa called the old club and advised them to buy Haaland.

At that time, the Norwegian striker was only 18 years old and was still playing for Molde in the Norwegian league.

“At that time, I had the name of a young striker that I very much hope we (MU) will recruit. I called MU leadership and said that I have a young talented striker for them before coming to lead the team for about 6 months. He was offered to sell for £ 4 million, only £ 4 million, but MU abandoned this transfer.

MU should now own the number 1 scoring machine in the world, but they didn’t listen to me. And where is he now? You don’t ask anymore.

Don’t ask anymore …”, Solskjaer emphasized on Media VG, but avoided mentioning Haaland’s name directly during the exchange and meeting with Red Devils fans.

From the time he was leading Molde, Solsa understood the potential of his fellow young striker and had the idea to promote Haaland to England (specifically MU) to continue developing his career.

However, after MU refused, Haaland joined Salzburg. By the end of December 2019, he joined Dortmund for 20 million euros. The rest is history!
