Manchester United might be priced out of the race for Erling Haaland, Louis Saha has said. He recently revealed that a player like Haaland might cost £200 million in a crazy market.
According to him, looking at the high transfer fees currently circulating in the market, and with midfielders going for 100M, a player like Erling might be too expensive for MUFC.
He added that people will always encourage MUFC to go for the likes of Mbappe or Haaland, but it’ll never be straightforward.
His words, “When you look at the enormous transfer fees at the moment, any team, even Man Utd, will struggle to make any signings this season.”
“When you see midfielders going for £100m ($138m), you can imagine that a top striker like Haaland will go for £150m ($208m) or even £200m.”
“So, the market is really difficult for Manchester United. People can encourage United to go for the likes of Haaland or Mbappe but in reality, it is a crazy market and not always possible.”
On convincing Haaland, “United don’t need to prove anything to Haaland.”
“Players are not stupid. It’s not like it was three or four seasons ago, it is clear that United are going in the right direction.”
“Last season, there were three games in the Champions League that let them down and they were affected by bad injuries but otherwise, they had a great season.”
“You can see from the types of players that they’ve already bought in – Sancho & Varane. Clearly, the best players of the highest calibre are attracted to the club.”
“There is no reason why they couldn’t even approach someone like Messi because of the stature of the club.
“That’s also the reason that someone like [Paul] Pogba is likely to stay. He can see the club going in the right direction.”
