Solskjaer drops Erling Haaland transfer hint


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes he is following the progress of Erling Haaland and has not ruled out making a transfer move for the Dortmund striker.

Haaland has developed into one of the best strikers in world football, scoring 38 goals in just 40 matches for Dortmund since joining from Red Bull Salzburg.

Clubs like Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all been linked with the Norway international, but it seems the Red devils have more than a passing interest as well.

When asked whether his previous relationship could help smooth the path to Old Trafford, Solskjaer told Norwegian outlet VG: “Erling will have a fantastic career. I’m following Erling. I’ve always said that.

“Was it 18 months we had together or something? Almost two years, maybe. A wonderful time. He will definitely have a great career for both Norway and his club.

“He is doing incredibly well for Dortmund, so we’ll see where he ends up. As a Norwegian and someone who has worked with him, it is of course fun that he does so well.

“We will do what we can to become a better team, then he will do what he can to become a better player. Where does he end up? I do not want to say anything other than that, that I wish him all the best. Which choice he makes may be up to him.”

Dortmund are enduring a difficult campaign in the German league and sacked coach Lucien Favre after a 5-1 defeat to Stuttgart in December.
