Erling Haaland

Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United and Italian Serie A champions Juventus lead the race to sign Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland.

This is according to the newest reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

Erling Haaland is one of the deadliest strikers in world football at the moment after the impressive start to the current season.

According to the specific report from The Guardian, Manchester United and Juventus are at the front of the long queue to sign the teenage striker.

Erling Haaland was previously managed by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Norwegian club Molde.

He moved from Molde to Red Bull Salzburg for a fee of around 5.5 million pounds earlier in January.

His relationship with Solskjaer could tilt the race to sign him towards Manchester United who have struggled in attack until the last three games.

Erling Haaland has scored 12 goals and also assisted six more in the colours of Red Bull Salzburg in the league this season.

The 19-year-old is one of the leading goalscorer in the Champions League this season with six goals in just three appearances including three goals in the first group stage game of the season vs Genk.
