Erling Haaland is at the center of one of the biggest transfer tussles in history this summer. And top European clubs’ fiery fight for his signature has got United fans tweeting about Haaland’s blue bag, even!
Haaland was donning a baby blue rucksack when checking into The Lowry Hotel. Here is why this simple look went viral among United fans.
United fans, tweeting about Haaland’s blue bag, seemed to think that their chances of signing the forward were crushed.
They interpreted the color as a hint that Haaland will transfer to Manchester City instead. After all, baby blue is City’s color!
So, is United’s hunt for a new striker, which could have been Haaland, at an end?
Haaland has a release clause of around £60m and it comes into effect in 2022.
Borussia Dortmund will have to sell the striker this summer if they want to maximize their earnings from a sale.
The Norway international may not stay long with the Bundesliga side now.
A move to the Premier League is possible, because Manchester United identified the forward as their priority target.
However, Manchester City have long been touted as the favorites to land him.
His father, Alf-Inge, and agent, Mino Raiola, were pictured in Spain last week. They arrived there for talks over the 20-year-old forward’s future with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
