Erling Haaland Stats & Performance
Erling Haaland’s incredible goals stats leave even Messi and Ronaldo behind! The Norwegian Terminator has now scored 41 goals this season at just 19 years, nine months, and 23 days.

Messi did it slightly sooner than CR7, hitting 41 goals for Barcelona in the 2009/10 season aged 22 years, 10 months, and six days.
Being with 12 months with Borussia Dortmund in which he scored 49 goals in 49 games, as well as racking up a further 11 assists. No player can score such goals at this rate without attracting the EPL giants like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City.
Any club would like to have him by their side. As we know, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus can also be the future destinations for Haaland to land on. All of the above-mentioned clubs are prestigious enough to make their case, but what chance the Manchester City and Manchester United have to get him.
Will Erling Haaland be joining Manchester United?
It is nearly impossible for any football fan to hear or read about Manchester United and Erling Haaland in the same sentence from the recent several months. The Red Devils have shown full interest in signing the Borussia Dortmund forward this year. Man City, too, wants to sign a striker, with Sergio Aguero‘s contract coming to an end.
United is very keen to make the Dortmund striker join the team as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying his connections hard to win the transfer race, his phone call with Erling Haaland is stepping forward in the transfer race.
The United manager has allegedly in contact with Haaland to make him convince to join Manchester United before the official transfer scene starts. But there are some rumors spreading that he is not joining the Manchester United FC.
According to a Leeds fan, the Red Devils have absolutely no chance of signing Haaland. He made reference to a notorious incident involving Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland, who was on the receiving end of a horror tackle from Roy Keane during the Manchester derby in 2001.
“There’s no way he’s going to Manchester United. The Haalands hate Man United. If you remember the whole Roy Keane with his dad business, why would he go there?” says a fan.
When he was asked about the money power of the Manchester United, he said,
“City has got more (money) than United, Madrid will pay more than United. Keane ended his father’s career. It’s absolute nonsense.
“He will never go there when he can go to City or Madrid or to Bayern or anywhere else.”
Given Haaland’s family history, the fact he’s been pictured in a Man City shirt, and with Leeds being his place of birth, it’s difficult to argue.
United is in the search for a new forward player for a while, and Solskjaer wants Haaland to join the Red Devils more than anyone else. And the Red Devils boss is not going to give up easily on getting one of the best players on the planet. Also, Nicky Butt quits Manchester United to pursue a ‘new challenge’.
But, as long as he is still with Borussia Dortmund these rumors are not going anywhere, Hope you like the article about Erling Haaland’s stats, transfer news, rumors, and performance, share the article on Facebook or anywhere.
