Erling Haaland could be Manchester United’s No 9

Football News

For the next 10 years, Erling Haaland could be Manchester United’s No 9 if they plan to spend big on the Norwegian, says Michael Owen, who views the Borussia Dortmund star as the ideal striker to put Old Trafford to a close with a run of stop-gap signings.

The Red Devils have found great value in aging frontmen over the years. The important contributions were all made by Henrik Larsson, Robin van Persie, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Edinson Cavani.

None, however, were long-term options for United, ensuring that more goalscoring talent had to make daily forays into the transfer market.

Manchester United has struggled at the moment to find the young player who will take them as a No. 9 players. I think Haaland at Dortmund is the one player out there who comes to mind, a player who could be in their squad for 10 years and stop them having to buy stop-gaps all the time. At the moment, he is the player on everyone’s mind.

Dimitar Berbatov, another former United frontman, admits that Haaland will be a shrewd addition, but he also claims that Mason Greenwood, an academy graduate, may still become the prolific central striker for whom the Red Devils are crying out.
