Doesn't matter anyway. OGS isn't going to be there long enough to sign him.
Well it's merely saying Håland already has a connection with OGS and he'd love to play in the Premier League someday.
Haland will be selling his soul if he went to Utd. Imagine joining the club who's famous captain ended your father's career...
I could see Ole becoming DOF actually.
In the interview he says his dream once was to win the league with Leeds United. His father also wouldn't have any problem if he joined United. His father doesn't hold any grudges towards United.
On top of that it's just too soon for the move imo. He should take his time and cement himself where he is now.
Leeds could be playing in the PL next season so...
Haaland is being passed up the Red Bull pyramid to Leipzig, so people should stop wasting their time.
Yeah, this is what's going to happen.
So far the extent of the legit rumors are Ole saying he liked him from his time at Molde. Haaland saying he liked Ole from then. And Haaland saying he likes the PL and would enjoy playing there.
Where'd we land on this type of ownership structure being illegal?
I honestly don’t see an issue. Leipzig is the NHL team, Salzburg is the AHL, and NY is the ECHL.
I don't see it being much different from the way the Pozzo were operating not so long ago, when they owned Granada, Udinese and Watford at the same time. Although they subsequently sold Granada, as far as I'm aware that was because they received the opportunity to bleed a passing Chinese investor rather than any authorities expressing governance concerns.
This was exactly what came to mind first, but wasn't that deemed illegal? I thought that's why Granada was divested. Thought this type of ownership was codified as being out of bounds, but maybe I'm totally wrong.
If it isn't, it should be.
From googling, it's hard to find sources, but this pair of links La Liga Side Granada Owner Gino Pozzo Sells Club To China's Desports For $42M

suggest that while there have been concerns about the flow of money between the clubs, the footballing authorities haven't made any pronouncements, and Granada was simply sold for profit.
I share your dislike of this kind of ownership arrangements - not least now you have Leipzig and Salzburg both playing in the Champions League.
There was a lot of talk about this 2 years ago when both Salzburg and Leipzig were in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and it looked like they might end up drawn against each other in the semi-final. Nothing ever came of it, because Leipzig lost their quarter-final tie, but I thought there was some kind of ruling that made it so they both couldn't be in the Champions League. I guess not though.
Pretty sure they determined that they were satisfied with the organizations being arm-length from each other, and therefore there was no issue with them playing each other.
As it turns out, in the summer of 2017, following concerns being expressed about the Red Bull ownership issue, Salzburg instituted changes of decision-making personnel at the club to ensure compliance with the rules.

Our view: Liverpool must have been impressed with Felipe Anderson
Have always thought Felipe Anderson would be an incredible fit at Liverpool. Extremely versatile positionally and IMO would take the next step to World Class under Klopp.

Doubt its real and I doubt he can be good for barca.
January isn't happening, but feel free to drop £70M in the summer.
That's stupid because he's Dennis Bergkamp 2.0.
Arsenal scouts in Pool tonight to watch Szoboszlai in action. 18 y/o MF who looks promising.
It’s not stupid, lautaro at this point hasn’t shown the passing skills or technical ability to play for Barca.
City and United both want Odegaard apparently, but I just don't see any way that Real Madrid let him go.
United also seem to want Maddison but if this season is any indication Leicester and United are on completely different trajectories and I understand the appeal of an historic club with money but if Leicester make the CL I just can't see him leaving unless City/Liverpool come calling. They have a better team and a better manager.
