Erling-Braut Haaland signed for Borussia Dortmund yesterday after a couple of months of speculation as to where he might end up.

In the end, Haaland chose Borussia Dortmund.

This looks like a smart move from the player’s perspective.

He will develop in an area with much less pressure than the likes of Premier League or Serie A.

It also means that Manchester United are left to dry.

According to ESPN, one of the reasons United didn’t go for him was the buyout clause.

Mino Raiola insisted on a €50 million buyout clause, to which the Red Devils couldn’t agree.

Raiola is in war with United at all fronts, it seems. He’s trying to get Paul Pogba to Real Madrid, although it’s not going down well for him so far.

The Old Trafford side will also look to strengthen some other parts of the pitch.

Mason Greenwood made his breakthrough in recent games, and he looks like the real deal for now.
