Red Bull Salzburg superstar striker Eling Haaland is reportedly available for just £17m this January due to a clause his contract. This revelation comes from the German outlet Bild.
Haaland joined Salzburg last January for the bargain basement fee of £4.5m from Norwegian club Molde, where he was coached by Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until leaving to manage the Red Devils in December of 2018.
At Salzburg, Haaland has been on fire scoring 27 goals in just 20 appearances this season. That tally includes 8 goals in 5 Champions League appearances.
Erling Haaland– Newcastle should make a bid no matter how long the odds
As you would expect, a lot of Europe’s elite are interested in bringing Haaland in. If the news of his release clause is accurate, that list will only grow longer.
The strapping Norwegian was actually born in Leeds to former-Leeds defender Alf Haaland. Erling is a self-professed Leeds United supporter. However, the Championship side are unlikely to be able to afford the player even at the reduced price tag.
However, Newcastle could certainly afford to take a stab at bringing Haaland on board in January. While it is highly unlikely the player would choose Newcastle with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, and Dortmund all tracking the forward, it wouldn’t hurt to make an attempt.
