Opinion: Erling Braut Haaland’s next club should be English

After the reports of Erling Braut Haaland going to Germany, we believe he should play for an English club after Austria. 

We don’t know who is counseling Erling Braut Haaland, but he is making a huge mistake by not going to an English club after RB Salzburg.

The young Norwegian player seems to have found an appealing challenge for him to continue his career in the Bundesliga.

Germany appears to be the country where he will play next, and we don’t think he is giving it more thought than he should.

The options he had in English football were also very exciting, he even had some options at Real Madrid.

Though we understand he may feel inexperienced to play in major competitions such as La Liga or the Premier League.

But considering his insane growth over the last year, we believe that Haaland is making the wrong decision by going to Germany.

Don’t get us wrong, we are not trying to disrespect the Bundesliga or the clubs where he might end up.

RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund just qualified to the UEFA Champions League’s Round of 16.

These institutions are amongst the best clubs in European football after their achievement.

But Haaland needed a place where he could keep showing his skills to the world.

We hardly think that the German Bundesliga was the ideal place for him. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might be disappointed. 

After we all woke up with the news that Borussia Dortmund might be the club where he will end up this winter, we were disappointed.

But we believe that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn’t thrilled about not getting the striker he’s been trying to get for the last few months.

At Molde, Solskjaer was the manager who deserves the credit for discovering Haaland as Norway’s new talent.

Going to Dortmund is not the response he was expecting after the evident connection they developed over the manager’s time there.

We know who the main culprit of all this problem is, and we are about to point our finger directly at him.

Haaland fits the profile of the type of players that this agent usually gets.

The cocky and slightly arrogant footballer who will inevitably make it in this sport, but might make a lot of enemies in the process.

We are obviously talking about Mino Raiola, the Dutch agent that has Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, and Matthijs de Ligt as his top clients right now.

Erling decided to go with Mino because he knew that he would find better deals with him at the helm of his negotiations.

This obviously didn’t sit well with Solskjaer, as Manchester United is not going through a good situation with Pogba right now. 

Will Haaland ever play at Manchester United? 

It’s hard to tell what the future holds for Erling Braut Haaland, we know he will play in the German Bundesliga next.

But as far as where he is going after that, it’s impossible to tell. Borussia Dortmund will help him improve as a finisher and he will make this tournament his own.

The issue here is that another major shark in European football will be watching closely.

We all know how much power Bayern Munich has in the German transfer market.

Erling Braut Haaland instantly became one of the top targets for them in the future.

The Manchester United option was also appealing because Haaland could’ve played the UEFA Europa League with the Red Devils.

As he’s only performed in the UEFA Champions League with RB Salzburg this season. He won’t be able to play the same competition with Borussia Dortmund.

The other good options he had in English football this winter were Chelsea FC, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, and even Manchester City.

We know it’s hard to believe, but Erling Braut Haaland’s transfer fee currently sits at a measly €20 million.

It’s no wonder all the clubs in Europe were after this young talent. He is a total bargain!
