Rio Ferdinand has said that Manchester United must sign Erling Haaland at any cost, and he claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s friendship with the striker will help the club.
MEN Sport understands that United manager Jose Mourinho and football director John Murtough believe that Haaland is the best long-term substitute for Romelu Lukaku, even though United attempted to sign Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg last season.
Since then, Haaland has scored an incredible 47 goals in 48 games for Borussia Dortmund, drawing attention from all over Europe.
As a result, Ferdinand believes United should go all-out in the summer transfer window to sign the Norwegian, with Manchester City also interested.
As a result, Ferdinand believes United must go all-out to sign the Norwegian in the summer transfer window, despite Manchester City’s interest in the 20-year-old due to Sergio Aguero’s potential uncertainty.
He said on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show, “You know what, they just have to go and give everything to get Haaland, I don’t care. I don’t like talking about players who come from other teams, but this guy man, we can’t afford to lose him. England is his only destination; it’s the only place he’ll go. I’d be shocked if he went somewhere else. I was born and raised in this town. His father played football in England, so he enjoys the game. I’m sure it’s one of his goals to perform in England.”
