Manchester United have been told they are “not good enough” to sign Erling Haaland and will be unable to beat Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona to the in-demand striker’s signature this summer, according to Jamie O’Hara.
His agent Mino Raiola openly met with Madrid and Barcelona in the days before facing City in the Champions League quarter-finals this week.
Haaland’s value has also doubled and the Borussia Dortmund forward would be expected to cost up to £150 million if he moves this summer, and former Tottenham and Wolves midfielder O’Hara does not believe United are capable of completing the transfer.
“They can’t get Haaland. I’m sorry, but they’re not good enough. Why would he go to Man United?” he said on TalkSport.
“It’s alright needing him, but you’ve got Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City all after him.
“Look at [Paul] Pogba.
“Haaland’s not going to Manchester United where it will be, ‘We might win something, we might not’.
“He’s going somewhere where he is winning everything.”
