"Even though I love United, I don't think the club now can ride on its name alone, especially when you're trying to bring these players in.

"It's not like when I signed for United. We have to be brutally honest, back then everybody wanted to go there.

"We're talking 2021 now. Does everyone want to go to United now? I'm not quite sure everyone wants to now."

Haaland has been in fine form this season as he has scored an incredible 27 times and registered eight assists in 26 appearances.
