Why Manchester United pulled out of Haaland deal

On Sunday afternoon, Borussia Dortmund completed the signing of Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Braut Haaland ahead of favourite Manchester United.

Nigfooty.com gathered that Ole Gunnar Solkjaer led side pulled out of Haaland deal because of the way the deal was structured. United refused to sanction the deal due to how much money from the deal that was going to Mino Raiola, Haaland's agent and player's father.
("Exorbitant demands of the player's agent and a number of unattractive clauses they wanted to include," metro.co.uk.)

The issue of payment and terms of the deal made United to pull out of the deal.

More than a club were seeking for the service of the 19-year-old sensation and Manchester United were the favourite to bring the teenager to Old Trafford, but Borussia Dortmund seems to have jumped the queue and have secured the service of the Striker.

Haaland has been in top form since joining Red Bull Salzburg, scoring 28 goals in 22 appearances, including 8 in the Uefa Champions League.
