With January’s transfer window approaching, Manchester United want to strengthen their squad.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer particularly has his eye on RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland, so much so that he sent a “personal scout” for him.
The 19-year old hitman from Germany made his name when he scored a 6-2 hat-rick during Genk’s defeat by Salzburg in the Champions League.
“You know my answer,” he said when asked about signing with United, Juventus or Real Madrid in the future. “No comment.”
However, Alfe-Inge, Haaland’s father and former Manchester City and Leeds United midfielder, has talked about the possibility of moving to Old Trafford stadium.
“It would be nice,” Alf-Inge told Norwegian outlet TV2. “It is important to distinguish between being a supporter and a job. So, I have a very relaxed relationship. It’s a little different when it’s serious.
“He is a good player who plays for a very good team. It’s a club that bets on young [players] and has given him the chance.
“They have thought for a long time that they would give him the chance this summer, and at the same time there are many things that have taken place.”
“Most of the job he has done himself but he has been assisted by his former team-mates, and current coaches and team-mates, in addition to the hard work of many years.”
But the question remains, where will Manchester United play the striker since they already have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
