Erling Haaland’s ‘time in England will come’ says pundit
Manchester United would beat Liverpool to the Premier League title if they signed Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. That’s according to Gabriel Agbonlahor who believes the striker would make the difference for any top team in England.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a known admirer of Haaland who has once again been in sensational form this season.
Haaland has netted 19 goals in just 16 appearances across all competitions so far.
United are level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League but could go above them with a win over Burnley tomorrow night.
Former Aston Villa and England star Agbonlahor thinks they could stay at the top of they were to seal a whopping £180m deal for the 20-year-old.

“He’s the most complete striker out there for me,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
“We’re talking about Premier League clubs wanting him; I think Bayern Munich or Real Madrid are the favourites to get him.
“I feel like Borussia Dortmund can ask for whatever they want. If you’re talking about £100million for Sancho, you’re talking £180m for Haaland.
“You’re talking ridiculous money. He’ll be the most expensive player ever when he leaves Dortmund because he’s getting better.

“He’s learning, he looks hungry. He’s not happy just to be at Dortmund and score goals, he’s trying to improve his game and he’s going to get better and better.”
Agbonlahor thinks Haaland would make the difference for any of the four teams in contention for the title who could realistically afford him.
He added: “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.
“What would he do for any of those clubs now? If they had him in January, whoever signed him would win the league.”
United currently have Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood as their main striker options.
None have established themselves at the same level as Haaland though.
Signing the Norway international could make all the difference for United as they look to compete for the Premier League title once again.
United return to action against Burnley tomorrow night in the top flight with kick-off at 8.15pm.
After that attention turns to the showdown with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
