Italian Serie A giants Napoli have conceded defeat to Premier League outfit Manchester United in their pursuit of the hottest young striker in Europe.
Norwegian international Erling Haaland has established himself as one of the hottest strikers on the European football scene as well as being the hottest young striker in world football.
According to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, Napoli are interested in a move for the player but the Norwegian hitman is likely to join Manchester United who are also interested in him.
Erling Haaland has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Red Bull Salzburg and he would certainly add firepower to the Manchester United attack.
