Manchester United's hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland could reportedly be scuppered by their frosty relationship with his agent Mino Raiola.
The Red Devils were heavily linked with the 20-year-old last January but ultimately missed out on his signature to Dortmund, where the forward has continued his prolific form.
Man United retain an interest in signing Haaland, although they are expected to wait until 2022, when a £68m release clause kicks in to his contract, to make their next approach.
However, The Athletic reports that, while the Norway international remains a priority target for the 20-time English champions, their chances of signing him could be hampered by Raiola.
Raiola's relationship with Man United is poor, due largely to the ongoing speculation regarding Paul Pogba's future which Raiola has continued to fuel publicly.
Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously taken charge of Haaland at Molde, but it is the relationship between the club's board and Raiola which could prove to be the problem.
