Haaland prices out Juve?

Erling Haaland’s wage demands are proving to be a problem for Juventus, reports Tuttosport.

The Old Lady have been linked with the striker for several months, along with Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Manchester United.

They emerged as favourites to land the 19-year-old earlier this week due to the influence of agent Mino Raiola.

However, the Turin daily claims Haaland’s salary requests are becoming a sticking point in negotiations with Juve.

The Norwegian is said to be seeking €8m a season, which would place him fourth on the Bianconeri’s wage bill, behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala amd Gonzalo Higuain.

However, Juve would be currently trying to trim their wage bill as it’s the third largest of any sports team in the world.

It remains to be seen at this stage whether the Scudetto holders will give in to Haaland’s demands or cool their interest.

Haaland has scored 28 goals in 22 games in all competitiions for Salzburg this season, including eight in six Champions League matches.
