Manchester United ultimately backed out of a move for Erling Haaland when Mino Raiola tried to insert a buyout clause in the proposed deal to sign him from Red Bull Salzburg.

I don’t think he’ll be leaving Dortmund this summer.”

And Real Madrid’s pursuit of the Norway starlet  this summer only confirms the fears Old Trafford’s hierarchy held.

It is believed Haaland has no plans to leave Dortmund this summer after making a stunning start to life in the Bundesliga, despite Raiola’s confirmation that he plans to take a “great player” to the Bernabeu in the next transfer window.

While Haaland and his representatives insist the 19-year-old believed his development would be better served at Borussia Dortmund, United insiders felt such a deal would set a dangerous precedent.

Their fear was that Raiola would effectively control his next move – and with the fee believed to be in the region of £50million United refused to leave themselves in such a vulnerable position.

While there might have been an element of face-saving on their part after missing out on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top January target, Real’s interest justifies their misgivings.
