That’s why Bundesliga clubs are still in the race, and pushing.

Solskjaer must be amply aware about the full importance of this particular demand, especially since he has managed Haaland prior to the United gig and also regularly juggles the ambitious interest of multiple youth academy graduates at Old Trafford presently.
As of such, Haaland being only 19 years of age and functioning in a relatively lesser-known league, it is easy to see why the likes of Juventus and United may not be able to fully assure the player of the fulfillment of this demand.
Further still, Romano maintains that the bids and interest put forth by the Bundesliga clubs is of a more important overview to the bigger picture of the deal. Leipzig have confirmed contact with the starlet while Borussia Dortmund are still big players in the saga.
