Video: Solskjaer reveals Haaland contact amid Man Utd transfer links

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.
