Gabriel Agbonlahor: Signing Erling Haaland in January will give Manchester United the title advantage

Speaking on TalkSport (h/t The Mirror), Former England international Gabriel Agbonlahor believes Manchester United have much to gain if they land Erling Haaland in January.

The Red Devils have had the run of form and luck and are just a point away from moving to the Premier League summit. However, with more than half the season to go, there is still much to be dealt with.

“If they had him in January, whoever signed him would win the league.”

United’s good run has prompted a rise in expectations regarding the club’s January business. Ed Woodward, however, has revealed that any long-term investment will have to wait until the summer.

But Agbonlahor believes United can gain an advantage if they land Haaland this month. An infallible scorer, the Norwegian’s goals will be an excellent addition to the Red Devils attack.

“You look at the Premier League teams that could do with him now; Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, they could all do with him.”

The former Villa star believes Haaland is the most complete striker in European football today. The 20-year-old currently averages almost a goal per game for Borussia Dortmund, backing up Agbonlahor’s claims.

United were keen on signing Haaland last January. The striker however snubbed our interest to join Dortmund instead. The move has paid off as he continues to go from strength to strength.

The striker has a £70m release clause that kicks in next summer. With 34 goals in just 35 games, he has also attracted attention from the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. (h/t The Mirror)

The reigning Golden Boy winner, Haaland can be a game-changing signing for United. Solskjaer is a fan of his countryman and managed him during his time at Molde.

Another issue United could have in landing Haaland is having to deal with Mino Raiola. The superagent, who also represents Paul Pogba, managed to rub the club the wrong way with his comments earlier in the season.

The striker is truly a world-class prospect and has all the makings of an infallible scorer, if not one already. Signing him would definitely be a step in the right direction for United.
