Juventus Deployed New Transfer Tactics To Overcome Man United Challenge In Race For Erling Haaland




Erling Haaland

It’s no longer news that Norway international Erling Haaland is being wanted by more than 15 clubs following his exploits in all the four Champions League matches played so far this season.

Liverpool, United, Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Barcelona, PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus are all in the list of clubs vying for the youngster’s service, but the Serie A Champions have taken a huge step towards defeating their competitors.

According to Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, Juventus have met with the player’s agent Mino Raiola to discuss their chances of signing the teenager.

The Turin based outfit believe meeting with the highly-rated agent will boost their chances of luring Haaland to the club in January.

It should be recalled that many transfer media reported on Friday that the youngster is considering a move to RB Leipzig to continue his development because he believes that regular game-time is guaranteed in the Bundesliga side, unlike other interested clubs who can boast of two or three well-established strikers.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might need to hasten his move for Haaland as he is tipped to be the most probable one to snatch him out of RB Salzburg due to the relationship he had with the player during their time at Molde in Norway.

Tahith Chong

Manchester United are facing the prospect of losing Academy graduate Tahith Chong for free this summer.

Dutch junior international Tahith Chong came through the ranks at Manchester United before making his first-team debut.

The 20-year-old has six months left to run on his present deal at the Theatre of Dreams.

His Manchester United contract will expire this summer.

He has played around 400 minutes of football under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Tahith Chong has demanded a weekly contract of £35,000 to extend his Manchester United contract but the Red Devils are not prepared to grant him his request according to The Athletic.

The u21 Dutch international was considered to be the greatest young talent at Manchester United around a year ago but he has not been able to step up to be a regular fixture in the first team.

Other young players like Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have surpassed him in that aspect.

Striker Mason Greenwood has scored 10 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils, while Brandon Williams is a regular at left-back.

Tahith Chong made an impressive second-half appearance at the weekend as Manchester United beat League One side Tranmere Rovers 6-0 in the FA Cup fourth round.

Manchester United have reportedly made a second offer for Sporting Lisbon player Bruno Fernandes whom they are desperate to sign before the transfer window ends this Friday.

Manchester United have made a transfer decision on the future of Alexis Sanchez at the club.

Alexis Sanchez is widely regarded as an expensive flop at Manchester United after the Chilean international failed to live up to expectations at the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United fought hard to secure his signing ahead of city rivals Manchester City and he was given a big contract.

Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United from North Londoners Arsenal in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the other direction.

He was given a big contract worth £500, 000 in weekly salary when he joined in January 2018.

Alexis Sanchez has a four-and-a-half year contract until the 2021/22 season.

After 18 months of inconsistent displays for Manchester United, Alexis Sanchez was sent out on loan to Inter Milan last summer for the current season.

The Chilean international has had an injury-hit time at Inter Milan since joining and his fitness was recently called into question by manager Antonio Conte.

On his future, an exclusive report from the Daily Star disclosed that Manchester United want Alexis Sanchez back at the club next season and that the Red Devils won’t be open to another loan move to Inter or a permanent transfer.

The new development won’t be music to the ears of Manchester United fans.
