It seems as though when it comes to former transfer targets, Leeds fans don’t forget they were once linked to the club.
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.
Here’s the best of the debate.
Its fairly obvious why he didn’t sign for us. Not rocket science

Understood he turned down Leeds for more money.

Money talks. Even if we go up he’ll undoubtedly have the champions league lot circling with their fat stacks at this point.
