Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent his personal scout to watch in-form striker Erling Haaland in action for his club.

Erling Haaland plays his club football for Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg and the Daily Mirror revealed that Solskjaer sent personal scout Simon Wells to run the rule over the 19-year-old teenage striker during a recent Champions League game.

Erling Haaland joined Austrian Bundesliga outfit Red Bull Salzburg in January 2019 from Norwegian top flight side Molde and he has been a revelation since his transfer.

The Norwegian international has scored 26 goals in all competitions in the colours of Red Bull Salzburg this season including seven Champions League goals thus making him the topscorer in the competition ahead of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who has six goals.

His form has attracted several big European sides including Manchester United who has a little advantage due to the fact that the player previously worked with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer while the Red Devils legend was at Molde.

Apart from Premier League giants Manchester United, major European sides like Real Madrid, Napoli, Barcelona and Juventus are also interested in signing the young striker but they will have to wait till the summer at least.
