Haaland is once again in the headlines because of another exemplary performance in the Champions League. The goals scored by the Norwegian win over Sevilla in the Champions League on March 10th, 2021. Following the game, talks resurfaced a move away from the North Rhine-Westphalia club for the twenty-year-old striker. As usual, in the names mentioned, Liverpool ranked the highest.
Former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher felt thrilled with the news that his former club could sign such a fantastic striker. In an interview on March 16th, 2021, he said, ” when Haaland scored against Sevilla, he was acting mad, and in his celebration, you can see that. He does not care about anything but his team’s progress in the way that he celebrated.”
The forty-three-year-old Englishman is also aware of Anfield’s side’s interest in Kylian Mbappe. In an interview, he said, “I would rather have Haaland over Mbappe for his ruthlessness in front of goal and the dedication he shows his club and team-mates.”
Background on ‘The Terminator’
Erling Braut Haaland or Haaland introduced himself to football fans around the world with class. He did this by recording eight goals and one assist in eight Champions League fixtures for Red Bull Salzburg. His form in the competition was a surprise to all those unaware of the Norwegian’s name and ability.
However, to the natives of Austria, Haaland was a rising star in the Austrian Bundesliga, where he recorded sixteen goals and two assists in fourteen appearances.
Following his form, Borussia Dortmund signed him on December 30th, 2019, to replace Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal). ‘The Terminator’ has recorded forty-four goals and eighteen assists in forty-three appearances overall in all the competitions since his arrival. These stats make him an exciting prospect for a team like Liverpool.
There is another reason as to why the reds should look to sign the young striker. The reason was that they lack a seasoned striker like Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, and Robbie Fowler.Liverpool’s major problem this season was their lack of goals and their lack of ruthlessness. Haaland will be a permanent solution for their issues and guide them back to the top of the Premier League table.
Nevertheless, Liverpool should not expect to sign Erling Braut Haaland with ease as the Norwegian has other suitors.
Haaland transfer to Manchester United banrolled by sales of Cavani and Pogba
The interest that the Red Devils have for Dortmund is not a well-kept secret, and their observations of the twenty-year-old forward can be hazardous for other teams who are after ‘The Terminator.’
From the perspective of the Norwegian international, United can be a great team to move to. His reasoning would be solely based on the side’s capability of playing in the Champions League.
Fortunately for the Manchester club, they have secured the condition as mentioned earlier of the Dortmund star.
However, his move to Old Trafford would have to appease Dortmund as well, and for that, they would have to pay a huge transfer fee. To do this, United will offload Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba. These two players do not wish to continue their careers at Manchester United and could pave the way for the Red Devils to sign Haaland.
