Manchester United may have to cough up £12million to pay agent Mino Raiola if they want to seal a deal for Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland, according to reports.
The Norwegian is one of the brightest prospects in Europe, having scored eight Champions League goals and 16 Austrian Bundesliga goals so far this season.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Haaland is a player that he likes with rumours that the Red Devils will wrap up a £76m deal for him in January before loaning Haaland back to Salzburg until the end of the season.
And now The Sun claims that Raiola will demand £12million to help facilitate Haaland’s possible move to United.
United are ‘keen to reduce that figure drastically’ but ‘accept’ they could have to pay up ‘to get the deal done’.
The report adds that Salzburg will only clear the way for the transfer ‘if they are able to keep the brilliant teenager for the remainder of the campaign’.
