Earlier today, we covered a story from The Sun in which it was claimed that Manchester United are confident of seeing their January bid accepted for Erling Haaland.

The prolific 19-year-old has been in fine form this term, scoring goals for fun out in Austria with RB Salzburg. It really comes as no surprise to learn that several of Europe’s big-boys are now keen on acquiring the talented teenager.

Well last night, Norweigan United fan, @ThereseUTD, got her hands on a photo of Haaland seemingly signing a United jersey amid those January transfer rumours…

Now the reasoning behind the jersey signing remains unknown. Perhaps he was just doing a fan a favour by sticking his signature on the piece of kit, or maybe, just maybe, there is more to it than that…

I’d like to think that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s working relationship with Haalad could play into United’s hands, though we can’t ignore the fact that we don’t have Champions League football on the table right now.

One area where we can blow other teams out of the water is financially. United could offer a package that some simply couldn’t match, though that would have to be considered a risk, given Haaland’s age and inexperience.

I guess we’ll just have to sit tight and see how this one plays out, but it does seem like there’s something going on…
