For Manchester United, goal-scoring has been a major issue. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose to thin out the squad and sell Romelu Lukaku while also letting Alexis Sanchez leave.
With injuries mounting, the Baby Faced Assassin probably recognises his mistake and he’ll be looking to rectify that as quickly as possible.
Now it seems as though he’s identified a potential target. The story comes from the Daily Star, who state that United are ready to challenge for the signature of the prolific 19-year-old, Erling Haaland.
However, the Reds will face stiff competition as both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are also keen. The teenager has scored 18 times in just 11 games to start off this season, including four in just two Champions League games – so there’s no doubting his talent.
Currently plying his trade in Austria for RB Salzburg, it seems like only a matter of time before the talented up-and-comer gets a move to a top-five European league.
Although I’m biased, United would be the perfect place for Haaland to grow and learn as a player. He’d be given the starting striker job almost instantly, while the Reds have always had a way when it comes to developing and nurturing young talents.
The Norweigan wouldn’t come cheap, though, but United can afford it. Plus, who better to persuade him to make the move than his countryman Solskjaer?
