Manchester United can start competing again if they sign RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland, according to former midfielder Kleberson.
Haaland is one of the hottest prospects across European football after a scintillating start to the campaign. The 19-year-old has scored 26 goals in just 18 appearances so far this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already worked with Haaland during his time at Molde so the United boss will be aware of his talents.
“He would bring something different to United that would really help them when attacking. Ole is looking to build for the future and with Haaland United can start to compete again.”
According to the Evening Standard, Haaland has been valued at £85m by his Austrian side, and Solskjaer has ordered United scouts to watch the youngster closely.
The reported value for Haaland seems excessive seen as he has had such little time to prove himself, but his price-tag could increase further in the summer if the Reds do not get a deal done in January and his form continues.
Haaland is perhaps the most promising young forward that is potentially available to Solskjaer in January, and the United boss needs to prioritise a striker to provide competition to Anthony Martial.
We hope United back Solskjaer financially in January and make the move for Haaland; the youngster’s staggering goal record cannot be ignored.
