Manchester United were dealt some sort of transfer blow after they missed out on the signing of highly-rated Norwegian international star Erling Haaland who has painted European football with goals.
Erling Haaland has left Austrian Bundesliga champions Red Bull Salzburg for Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga after his transfer was confirmed by the 1997 UEFA Champions League winners at the weekend.
There are three reasons that his transfer to Borussia Dortmund is not such bad news for Manchester United.

- In-demand Striker Favours Man United Transfer
The first reason is that the Manchester United frontline will continue to develop especially with Mason Greenwood who has scored five goals in his last five starts for the Red Devils.
Also, Manchester United might still get their hands on Erling Haaland as there would be a release clause in his Borussia Dortmund contract after the player opted to join a European club before considering a big move to Manchester United.
Lastly, Manchester United don’t have to deal with Super Agent Mino Raiola who is said to have included a clause in the Erling Haaland transfer to Borussia Dortmund thus putting him in sole charge of the next move for the 19-year-old striker as revealed by The Athletic.
Erling Haaland is the first January signing for Borussia Dortmund.
