Manchester United are reportedly concerned that their bid for Red Bull Salzburg's Erling Braut Haaland could hinder their efforts to keep Paul Pogba.

Manchester United reportedly fear that Mino Raiola could sabotage their efforts to sign Erling Braut Haaland and keep Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.

In recent weeks, it has been well documented that United are one of the frontrunners for Red Bull Salzburg's Haaland, while Pogba has previously expressed a desire to leave the Premier League giants as soon as possible.

Ideally, United would like to complete a deal for Haaland in January, as well as keeping Pogba at the club on a long-term basis, which would require a new deal to be signed at some point.

However, the Daily Star claims that United are wary of Raiola's influence in both deals, which may leave them needing to make a choice out of the pair.

The report suggests that United are more confident of being able to sign Norway international Haaland if Pogba is given the green light to join either Real Madrid or Juventus.
