United On The Lookout As Salzburg Youngster Declares Love For Old Trafford Outfit


Report emanating from Italy-based media outlet TuttoJuve, suggest that Red Bull Salzburg highly-rated striker Erling Braut Haaland is interested in joining either Manchester United or Juventus as soon as his contract with the Austrian side comes to an end.

Haaland has been in a sensational form since the turn of the year and his days with RB Salzburg is numbered should he continue his deadly form in front of goal.

The 19-year-old introduced himself to the world when he scored nine record-breaking goals to help Norway defeated Honduras by a 12-goal margin.

The center-forward continues to attract much attention from Europe’s biggest clubs after he scored three goals in his Champions League debut last week.

According to the report, the youngster revealed his desire to follow Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s footsteps by playing for United or Juventus.

It should be recalled that Manchester United manager Ole Solskjaer was Haaland’s tutor during their days at Molde FC and there is a chance for a possible reunion at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are reportedly keeping close tabs on his performances in the Austrian league with the hope of launching a bid for his signature sooner rather than later.

The in-form youngster has scored 17 goals having played 10 games for Red Bull Salzburg this season.
