Italian agent Giovanni Branchini believes Manchester United would be the best move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The 20 year old striker is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer amid interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSG.

Branchini, whose clients include Douglas Costa and Mario Mandzukic, told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I do not know if he will leave Borussia Dortmund. It’s 50-50.

“I think he has a buyout clause of 88 million euros, which applies from next season. Many top European clubs are ready to pay that amount. He may decide to play in Dortmund for another season.

“The queue to secure his services is long. Together with Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappé, Neymar and Kane, he is one of the leading strikers in Europe.

“PSG can sign him if they sell Mbappé, then Real Madrid and the Manchester clubs are also there, although Guardiola would prefer a striker like Kane, who can be integrated with the team’s way of playing.

“Haaland would be perfect for Manchester United. The Red Devils have an excellent tradition with players from the north.

“The Premier League may be the best league for him, but he would do well in Spain and France as well, just as he does in Germany.”
