Ralf Rangnick to hand Manchester United an advantage in the pursuit of Erling Haaland
The striker is undoubtedly one of the best young players in the game today. His goalscoring abilities for Borussia Dortmund has been sensational for the last two seasons. Despite being out of the action for several games due to injury, he has bagged 14 goals and four assists in 11 matches this season.
Even though his performance have been top-notch, his team, Borrusia Dortmund, is yet to establish themselves as title contenders in the Bundesliga this season. It is believed that the Norweigian superstar would be looking to leave in the following summer.
However, he won’t have any problem finding his next home given the number of elite clubs queueing up for his signature. Apart from Man United, the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Paris St Germain are all tracking the 21-year-old’s situation.
The Red Devils are believed to have the upper hand in the negotiation table thanks to the imminent arrival of Rangnick in the United camp.
Rangnick led the team that convinced Haaland to join Salzburg from Molde for £7.2million in 2019. It is believed that the German manager’s relationship with the 21-year-old player could prove influential in a deal being reached.
The Red Devils currently hold a versatile forward line. On the one hand, they have ageing players like Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the combined age of the two stands at 70 years currently. Sooner or later they will need to be moved on. There are few better players than Haaland to replace the veteran goalscorers.
On the other hand, Man United have young players like Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho. But none of them come close to the numbers put up by Haaland. The 21-year-old’s goal-laden seasons could help him claim that spot in the squad if he moves to Old Trafford.
Haaland has proved his hunger, and he could become a monstrous weapon in any team’s attacking arsenal. Man United are yet to emerge as a challenger for the title. But, yesterday’s draw against table topper Chelsea has shown that there are flames in the team. With the inclusion of Haaland, it could become a bonfire.
