Manchester United fans have jumped to social media thinking they’ve found the solution to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s problems up front.
The Red Devils are light in attack after losing Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez without signing any replacement, so there’s more pressure than ever before on Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
If Martial or Rashford get injured the pressure goes to academy graduate Mason Greenwood, who has only made one start in a competitive game for the first team this far.
United fans watching the Champions League last night would have all heard about Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Håland becoming the third youngest player to score in his Champions League debut (behind Raul and Wayne Rooney).
Moreover, he is the first player since Rooney to score more than one goal in his first Champions League match. The belief now is that a star is a born, so Håland’s stock is about to go up.
Of course, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows a thing or two about the striker from managing him at Molde.
Håland made the move from Norway to Austria. His next transfer could easily see him join one of Europe’s top five leagues, and we’re sure Solskjaer has some considering to do…
Check out some of the reactions to Håland’s memorable Champions League debut below, with a number of United fans wanting Solskjaer to sign his former striker.
