Red Bull Salzburg sensation Erling Braun Haaland has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Serie A champions Juventus. Furthermore, three other clubs have also met the player’s €30 million release clause.
Haaland has turned a lot of heads to him this season following his impressive performances with the Austrian side. He’s been great in the domestic competition and in the Champions League.
Among the clubs interested in his services, we can find there are four frontrunners; Manchester United, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
All these clubs have met Haaland’s €30m release clause, but Italian outlet Tuttosport have updated the player’s situation, suggesting the Norway international has already made a decision over his next move.
They claim that Haaland has reached a 'verbal agreement' with the Bianconeri and the player is ready to make the move to Turin on a long-term deal that will see him earn up to €8m a year.
Nevertheless, this isn’t the first bold report from Tuttosport, so we need to be careful about this. The only thing we can assure is that four teams are going at it for his signature.
Erling has already visited both RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund, with Salzburg's sister club also confirming that they've made an offer to add the Norweigan to go play with them and reinforce their already-powerful offense.
Yet, Leipzig’s could be stopped by their inability to match Haaland’s wage demands, which could open the door for the other three clubs, especially Manchester United, to sign him either in January or at the end of the campaign.
United have been heavily linked with a move for Haaland, but if Tuttosport’s reports are to be believed, Juventus could land another young star at the turn of the year, just like they did with Matthijs de Ligt in the summer.
