Ex-Manchester United midfielder, Lee Sharpe has come out to talk about how sad it was for him to see Haaland sign for Borussia Dortmund, rather than the Red Devils.
The younger scored 28 goals in 22 games during the 1st half of the season for Red Bull Salzburg, including eight in the Champions League.
Everything looked set for a Man Utd move this January until he later signed for BvB to continue his development in the Bundesliga.
Reacting, Sharpe said he is still shocked that Erling did not sign since he and Ole are from the same country.
He added that dumping Mufc, one of the biggest clubs in the world for Dortmund felt weird because he would’ve been a frightening player for the club.
His words, “I’m surprised United have not been more active in this transfer window.
“They definitely need two or three new players in the summer. Solskjaer is short upfront, he needs one or two new strikers. The big one for me was Haaland.
“He could have come to United, and when you think that he’s Norwegian and you’ve got a Norwegian manager who is a legend of Norway, and if you’re not going to come and play for one of the biggest clubs in the world and for one of the biggest legends of your country, because you’re picking Dortmund instead… I think there’s something a little bit wrong in that one.
“He looks frightening, he would be the sort of player United would embrace.”
