‘Oliver is asking for more’ as Man Utd legend Gary Neville has called on Man United to sign £68m Erling Braut Haaland to partner returnee talisman Ronaldo.
The Borussia Dortmund striker has been linked with a move to Man Utd, along with the likes of Man City and Chelsea.
The 21-year-old is expected to leave Dortmund next season as he will have a release clause of around £68m.
The young forward has established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in world football. He has 65 goals from 65 games for Dortmund. This includes eight from just five outings across all competitions this term.
If Haaland does sign for Man Utd, he will partner up with Ronaldo. The former Real Madrid and Juventus star re-joined United this summer from the Italians.
Ronaldo netted a brace in his second debut for the Red Devils over the weekend. During Monday Night Football (as cited by MEN), Neville suggested that there’s no reason why Ronaldo and Halland cannot play together:
“I think Manchester United next year will lose probably Anthony Martial, they’ll lose Juan Mata [and] Edinson Cavani will leave because they got another year out of him. So it will free places to be filled,” Neville said.
“If Haaland becomes available next summer and they want to do a deal with his agent which is the big thing with Haaland then Manchester United should go for him. And I don’t think Cristiano coming prevents Haaland joining.
“Cristiano has played with Karim Benzema, with Gareth Bale, with all these great Galacticos at Real Madrid. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wouldn’t put him on the bench, why would you put him on the bench? You can fit two strikers in a team, surely.”
