United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one of the three managers who have shown interest in RB Salzburg’s 19-year-old striker Erling Haaland following his goalscoring feat in the Champions League.
The young striker is enjoying a blistering goalscoring form in front of goal as he has found the back of the net on 20 occasions in all competitions so far this campaign.
He scored a brace during Salzburg’s 3-2 defeat to Napoli in Wednesday’s Champions League fixture, becoming the first player to score six goals in his first three appearances in the history of the competition.
The player is tipped to move to a top European club in the next summer transfer window by pundits, but former Tottenham Hotspur star Erik Thorstvedt believes the youngster could be leaving Salzburg in January judging by his impressive goal record.

According to the former Tottenham goalkeeper, it would be hard to see Salzburg prevent the Norwegian from leaving in January should they receive big-money offers from interested suitors.
“There may be someone who will take a chance in January to move in first, And then let him play at Salzburg for the rest of the season.”
“Salzburg is a selling club and they will sell when they will get the most money. If it is next summer that they get the most money for him, they will sell then.”
Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Juventus’ Maurizio Sarri are the other managers who are linked with the player’s services as they are looking to upgrade their respective attacking departments.
