The prolific Borussia Dortmund striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all keen
The father of Erling Haaland insists any decision to sign the prolific striker must be down to a club, rather than a manager.
Haaland is set to be the subject of a bidding war this summer with numerous clubs interested in signing the 20-year-old.
The Norweigan has scored 49 goals in 49 games for Borussia Dortmund since moving to Germany from Red Bull Salzburg last January.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all said to be keen on the player, who has a contract at Dortmund until 2024 although there is a release clause which can be activated next summer.
Haaland’s father Alf Inge, who played for City, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest in his career, was asked earlier in the year about his son joining United in the near future.
“Manchester United have achieved great success in recent years,” he said on German outlet Sport1 via the MEN.
“The club is also trying to build something new there. But to draw comparison now is not so easy because he (Erling) is already playing in Dortmund.
“These are two very traditional clubs with a large fan base and a glorious history. Manchester United is a very proud club, just like Dortmund in Germany.”
Alf Inge has said in the past that any move for his son should be based on clubs as opposed to managers.
After Erling’s move to Dortmund, he said: “You never know how it would go in other clubs.
“It may well have been good, too, if we had chosen a different route. We’ll never get an answer to that. But we are very happy with the clubs he has been in.
