Man Utd may lose in Haaland chase because of Roy Keane tackle

The Norwegian star is about to leave Dortmund in the summer.

Paul Ince warned

Manchester United

that they would likely fail to sign the

Erling Haaland

because of a tough tackle by Roy Keane, the former Manchester United captain, on Erling's father, Alf-Inge.

The Red Devils are planning to sign the Dortmund star in the summer transfer window, although rumors have it that

Real Madrid

are close to signing the Norwegian striker. However, Ince believes that Manchester United may fail in this mission and the reason is the past and the captain's encounter with the father of the Dortmund striker.

He said: 

"Haaland is a tricky one because you have to go back to the situation with his dad [Alf-Inge] and Roy Keane – that incident happened at Old Trafford. Would he go to Manchester United based on that? I can't see it.

"If there is no Champions League then people like that aren’t going to go to Old Trafford."

Roy Kane was fined 155,000 pounds and suspended for eight games for his ugly tackle that resulted in Alf-Ing Haaland's serious injury. Former Man Utd captain wrote on his 2002 autobiography:  

"He was winding me up from the beginning of the game.

"Five minutes from time... I lunged forward at Haaland. I was trying to trip him rather than kick him. I knew it would probably mean a booking but, f*ck it, he'd done my head in.

"I’d waited long enough. I f*cking hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you c*nt."
