Mino Raiola said Manchester United coach ‘should focus on Paul Pogba’ and added that Erling Haaland can't be compared with Inter forward Romelu Lukaku.

Raiola believes the Manchester United coach should focus more on Paul Pogba, adding that Erling Haaland does not look like Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku left Manchester United in the summer of 2019 and joined Inter Milan. After this transfer, Manchester United was one of the European giants looking to hire the Norwegian star, but Haaland decided to continue his career at Borussia Dortmund.

Recently, Solskjaer compared him to Lukaku after Haaland's brilliant performance, and Raiola responded to Solskjaer's remarks in an interview with

Tuttosport

.

Raiola claimed that Pogba is not happy at Manchester United and that it is better for Solskjaer to do his best to get the most out of the French World Cup winner.

"

Solskjaer is a good guy, but Haaland isn't similar to Lukaku at all

," Raiola told Tuttosport. "

The only thing they have in common is the shirt number: No 9.

"I have never seen a centre-forward as mature as Erling at his age, maybe only Ronaldo the phenomenon and Zlatan.

"Erling is like Ibra at 20. He has the same desire to work and to become the best. Solskjaer, instead of comparing Haaland to Lukaku, should think about how he can make Pogba play like a champion."

About Haaland's future at Dortmund, Raiola provided an update on his transfer situation in Germany.

"I can't talk about Haaland's release clause. Rumours say Real Madrid want him? This is not new to me… but he's very happy at Borussia Dortmund.

"Erling wants to win the Champions League. When he'll leave the club, it will be for his ambition and not for money."
