Man Utd Transfer Blow As Erling Haaland ‘Verbally Agrees Deal’ With Juventus

Manchester United have been dealt a transfer blow as reports from Italy claim Erling Braut Haaland has verbally agreed a deal to join Juventus.

Haaland is one of Europe’s hottest transfer properties having scored 28 goals in 22 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg this season – including eight in the Champions League group stages.

United were thought to be favourites to land the 19-year-old, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having spoken of his admiration for his fellow Norwegian after managing him at Molde.

But Italian publication Tuttosport ran a story on its front page on Friday claiming Haaland had verbally agreed personal terms on a deal with Juventus that will net him £6.8million a year.

Juventus are said to be one of four clubs who met a reported £25.5m release clause in Haaland’s contract, along with United, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
