Manchester United have a big battle on their hands if they want to sign Norwegian international striker Erling Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg during the January transfer window.

According to the London Evening Standard, 14 Clubs had scouts in attendance to run the rule over Erling Haaland during the Champions League clash between hosts Red Bull Salzburg and reigning European champions Liverpool.

The Reds won the game 2-0 with the second-half goals from former Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah.

Champions League holders Liverpool were able to progress into the next stage of the competition as a result of that win, while Erling Haaland and Red Bull Salzburg drop down to the Europa League after finishing third in Group E.

Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland has been attracting the interest of Manchester United and other major European clubs.

Others like RB Leipzig, Arsenal, Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also in the running to sign the young Norwegian striker.

Erling Haaland has scored 28 goals in 22 games in all competitions this term in the colours of Red Bull Salzburg.

He is the second topscorer in the Champions League behind Robert Lewandowski after netting eight goals in five Group E games.
