MANCHESTER UNITED are not good enough to attract Erling Haaland this summer, former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara has claimed.

Haaland’s dad Alf-Inge and agent Mino Raiola – who could bag up to £25million from any deal – has already held discussions with Real Madrid and Barcelona in Spain.
And O’Hara feels Old Trafford chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no chance of competing with the club’s rivals in landing his fellow Norwegian.
He told talkSPORT: “They can’t get Haaland – because they’re not good enough. Why would he go to Man United?
“It’s alright needing him, but you’ve got Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City all after him.
“Look at [Paul] Pogba. They paid £100million for him and he’s gone they’re thinking we’re going to the next level… Man United are going to come back. And he’s gone there and it wasn’t worked. He’s been trophyless almost.
“Haaland’s not going to Manchester United where it will be ‘we might win something, we might not’.
“He’s going somewhere where he is winning everything.”
