Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has named the two clubs that could land Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Scholes has talked up Manchester United and Chelsea’s chances of signing the hottest football property in Europe.
Haaland has scored a staggering 49 goals in 51 appearances for Dortmund, helping the Bundesliga club reach this season’s Champions League quarter-finals.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City have all been heavily linked with moves for Haaland but Scholes believes Man United and Chelsea are better placed to sign the 20-year-old.
“I think it’s about which club can [afford to] pay for him now. I don’t think there’s too many out there that can,” Scholes told BT Sport.
“You think of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and all those noises that you hear, but they probably couldn’t pay that money.
“Man City don’t look like they want to pay that money. And Pep Guardiola hardly ever plays a number nine, anyway.
“Even when he had Aguero and Jesus fit, he’s hardly played them, so is that the type of player Guardiola wants? I’m not sure it is.
“Look, it’s a player Man United and Chelsea would be desperate for and they’re probably the two clubs who I think could afford to pay that this summer.”
