Haaland is already thought of one of the perfect gamers in world soccer and is being linked with many of Europe’s prime golf equipment ahead of this summer’s switch window.
The Norway worldwide has scored a staggering 49 targets in 51 appearances for Dortmund, serving to the Bundesliga membership attain this season’s Champions League quarter-finals.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City have all been closely linked with strikes for Haaland however Scholes believes Man United and Chelsea are higher positioned to sign the 20-year-old.
‘I think it’s about which membership can [afford to] pay for him now. I don’t assume there’s too many on the market that may,’ Scholes instructed BT Sport.
‘You think of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and all those noises that you hear, but they probably couldn’t pay that cash.
‘Man City don’t appear to be they need to pay that cash. And Pep Guardiola hardly performs a quantity 9, anyway.
‘Even when he had Aguero and Jesus fit, he’s hardly performed them, so is that the sort of participant Guardiola desires? I’m undecided it’s.
‘Look, it’s a participant Man United and Chelsea could be determined for and they’re most likely the 2 golf equipment who I believe might afford to pay that this summer.’
Scholes added: ‘I do assume they [Manchester United] aree determined for that quantity 9. Haaland is the apparent one, or Harry Kane, these sorts of gamers.
‘Will they come to Manchester United at this point? Can Manchester United get them here this summer? I think they probably can. But the two of them will have the choice of any club in Europe.’
Asked whether or not he can see Manchester United spending £150m on a brand new striker this summer, Scholes responded: ‘I think they probably would, yeah. Look, it’s a participant United are determined for.’
Owen Hargreaves, in the meantime, doesn’t imagine Haaland will base his subsequent transfer on cash and will as an alternative take a look at which membership is the ‘best fit’ for him.
‘He’s taken actual thought of steps all through his profession. I don’t assume it’s going to be about cash for Haaland,’ the previous England midfielder mentioned.
‘It’s going to be about discovering the correct match. Is that Manchester City? Or Manchester United? Or Barcelona? I can’t assume of a participant this younger who’s coveted by everybody.’
