Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he keeps in touch with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and refused to rule out Manchester United making a move in the future.
The United manager has a good relationship with the 20-year-old striker, who has rocked Europe this season with his goalscoring spree in the UEFA Champions League and Bundesliga, and fans will hope one day a deal will happen to take him to Old Trafford.
A release clause in his contract would allow him to leave for £65m in the summer of 2022, as per The Sun.
That is bound to lead to a frenzy of transfer speculation and Mino Raiola has already started hyping up his client in the media, saying only 10 clubs in the world have the financial power to make a deal happen – four of which are in the Premier League.
Solskjaer was asked today about Haaland’s rise to prominence since he worked with him at Molde.
He said (via FourFourTwo): “I think when you had kids and players through as a coach, you follow them, of course. I keep in touch with Erling and it’s great to see him become the player he has become and I know he’ll work to improve all the time.
