Roma director Nela: Monchi was offered Haaland for €4M 2 years ago

Roma director Sebino Nela has revealed they rejected the chance to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland at a cut-price €4m.

The talks were held as Haaland was considering his options at Molde - he would eventually move to RB Salzburg.

Roma were offered the chance to sign Erling Haaland two years ago for €4m," revealed Roma Women's director Nela to Radio Centro Suono Sport.

“He was proposed to Monchi by a former Roma player, but the club turned him down, so he went to Salzburg instead."

Haaland joined BVB last month for an initial fee of €20m.
