Leeds fans debate former target Erling Braut Haaland

Championship Picks

It seems as though when it comes to former transfer targets, Leeds fans don’t forget they were once linked to the club.

Dan James, who nearly signed last January, was the topic of discussion last month but now another player who used to be the club’s radar has attracted their attention.

Erling Braut Haaland was once tracked by the Whites but according to Phil Hay in May, Red Bull Salzburg offered a better pay packet.

This new debate over why he didn’t sign arose after the 19-year-old scored a hat-trick for his side against Club Brugge in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The forward also netted three goals last weekend too.

During the discussion, one Leeds fan claimed it was fairly obvious why he didn’t sign at Elland Road as another suggested money talks for the teenager.

A further individual noted that his performance this week is likely to have many top sides now watching over him.

Haaland claimed when he was 16 that he once wanted to win the league with Leeds. The forward has scored an incredible 17 goals in just nine appearances this term.

Here’s the best of the debate.
