Manchester United target, Erling Haaland, has reportedly made a U-turn on a potential transfer to Old Trafford due to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s treatment of Jadon Sancho.

Haaland is one of the world’s best players, and he continues to enjoy interest from a host of top clubs in Europe, having had an excellence run at Borussia Dortmund.

The striker has an outstanding return of 9 goals and 3 assists in just 6 matches for Dortmund this season, and he’ll no doubt bring some quality to United.

With his £67 million release clause set to become active next year, United are keen to bring the Norwegian to Old Trafford, but Eurosport reports that he has been put off about the idea due to some of the issues facing the club lately.

One of the issues is the uncertainty surrounding Solskjaer’s job at Old Trafford, as it remains unclear if he’ll continue to be in charge, and for how long that will be.

Haaland is also said to he worried about the fact that United are yet to name a replacement for executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward, who is expected to leave in a matter of weeks. He believes it shows that there’s some instability at the club.

Sancho’s lack of playing time at Old Trafford, following a £73 million move during the summer is also said to be of concern for Haaland.

Not only has the winger not performed as well as expected since arriving in the summer, he has also struggle to play regularly, and Haaland is said to be worried he would suffer the same fate if he joined United.

Of course, all of these are just rumours, but there does have to be some improvement at Man United soon, otherwise United may become an unattractive transfer destination for top footballers.
