Manchester United could be about to make a major coup with the potential signing of highly rated Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland who has been linked with a lot of clubs ahead of the winter transfer market next month.

According to the report from Givemesport, Manchester United are closing in on his transfer which will take place next month.

It was revealed that the Red Devils have reached an agreement to sign the 19-year-old attacker for £76m (€80m).

Manchester United plan to loan him to Red Bull Salzburg for the remainder of this season after they have completed his transfer in January 2020.

Apart from Manchester United, other European sides like German Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig, 1997 Champions League winners Borussia Dortmund and Italian champions Juventus are also in the running to sign the player that has painted European football with goals this season.

Erling Haaland has scored 28 goals in just 22 games for his team in all competitions this term.

He has scored eight goals in the Champions League this season in four starts and that would be his tally after Red Bull Salzburg were eliminated from the competition last week after finishing third in Group E on the back of a 2-0 home defeat to holders Liverpool.
