Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has commented on the future of RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland after Manchester United’s frustrating 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford.
According to Manchester Evening News, the United boss met with Haaland’s representatives in Austria on Friday looking to compete a deal for the young forward.
Widespread reports have suggested the Reds are keen on signing the 19-year-old who has lit up the Austrian League with a stunning goal record this term.
Solskjaer needs attacking reinforcements in January to provide competition for places in his frontline. He knows Haaland from his time at Molde in Norway and says that he has had a ‘great career in Salzburg’.
The youngster now appears to be looking to make the next step in his career and Old Trafford is looking more likely to become his next destination. Interestingly, Solskjaer said ‘he knows what he wants to do’ when quizzed on the striker.
As reported by the Mirror, Haaland has already told Solskjaer he wants to complete a transfer to United ahead of moves to potential other suitors such as Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
Solskjær asked if he was in Salzburg on Friday: "There's been plenty of speculation, and you know I wont talk about that, but he's [Erling Braut Håland] had a great career in Salzburg, so he knows what he wants to do." #mulive [tv2]
