Manchester United set to lose out on Lukaku’s replacement in January


Manchester United could miss out on the services of Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland who is reportedly considering a move to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the immediate future.

The 19-year-old has been the most sought-after teenager in the world as 15 clubs are interested in capturing his signature after his brilliant goal-scoring feat for the Austrian side so far this season.

The youngster announced his presence in European competition when he scored a hat-trick in his Champions League debut in September, and he hasn’t looked back since then.

He currently has seven goals in the competition, making him the leading goalscorer ahead of Messi, Mbappe, Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It’s no surprise that top clubs are showing interest in his services but the Red Devils are on the verge of losing the race to Bundesliga side in January, according to The Daily Mail.

Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all monitoring the Norwegian youngster but none of them are in a firm position to attract services in the summer.

However, it appears too early to suggest that the Red Devils did not stand a chance of luring the youngster to Old Trafford as RB Salzburg are yet to reveal if they will release him in January or not.
