Erling Braut Haaland ‘chooses Manchester United’ over Europe’s major heavyweights after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer flew to Austria to meet the in-demand teenage striker ahead of January window
- Erling Haaland is the most sought after striker in European football right now
- The young Norwegian is rated at around £80million, and top clubs want him
- He has reportedly told Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he wants to join
Currently a Red Bull Salzburg player, a swap to sister club Leipzig would appear to be on the cards, but the youngster apparently has other ideas.
Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland is one of the most sought after players right now
He has reportedly told Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he wants to join
As does his agent Mino Raiola, who also manages Paul Pogba and Matthijs de Ligt among other big name stars.
Raiola wants to keep Haaland’s options open, but United boss Solskjaer flew to Salzburg on Friday to make a sales pitch to their number one transfer target, and the striker seems to have been impressed.
He would be joining up with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front for United, making for quite the potent strike force.
Other clubs, such as Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, and sister club RB Leipzig want him too
Raiola may look for Haaland to join up with de Ligt at Juventus though, which was a big money move he helped get through the door earlier this year.
Haaland may have already played his last game for Salzburg. He didn’t feature against Hartberg through injury, and now the Austrian Bundesliga is on a two month break.
The 19-year-old has reportedly been to visit the training grounds of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, and also apparently made a quick stop off at Carrington to see the Manchester United facilities.
Now it remains to be seen which team will put up the cash, with Haaland currently rated at around £80million.
