Why Manchester United pulled out of the deal to sign Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland joined Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund on Sunday despite being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even traveled to meet Haaland's representatives in December as a deal looked to be close but it is believed United pulled out of the deal for many reasons.

According to Manchester Evening News, it is believed the club pulled out of a deal for the player after they refused to agree to a buyout clause and percentage of future sales.

They claimed further that Haaland's representatives, which include agent Mino Raiola, wanted to secure a share from future sales of Haaland as part of the transfer and it was a major detail United were unwilling to agree on.

The Premier League side was 'unprepared to put themselves in a position where the agent could effectively control the sell-on, rather than the club.'

Dortmund has paid around £18 million for his services thanks to a release clause in his deal, with Haaland poised to earn around £130,000 a week in Germany.
