Erling Haaland

Manchester United fans waiting for the club to sign teenage goalscorer Erling Haaland might be disappointed after the latest interview granted by his father.

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is the son of former Premier League player Alfe-Ing Haaland who played for clubs like Leeds United and Manchester City.

Erling Haaland snubbed a lot of clubs including Manchester United before signing for German Bundesliga title contenders Borussia Dortmund in January.

The 19-year-old Norwegian international striker joined Borussia Dortmund from Austrian Bundesliga champions Red Bull Salzburg at the turn of the year.

Several Manchester United fans were left disappointed after they missed out on the teenage striker. His father has further dampened their hopes in his interview with Spanish newspaper AS.

According to him, his son is focused on Borussia Dortmund at the moment before adding that the Spanish La Liga is a very attractive league for him.

The player has been touted as a possible transfer for La Liga giants Real Madrid as they search for a long-term replacement for first choice striker Karim Benzema who has served the club for over a decade.

Borussia Dortmund were able to sign Erling Haaland after an agreement was reached between both parties that the player can move to another team for $75m at least as from the winter of 2021. A lot of clubs would be in the mix to sign him once winter 2021 is around the corner.

Erling Haaland has scored 40 goals in 31 games this season in the colours of both Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.

The freescoring striker found the back of the net 28 times in just 22 games for Red Bull Salzburg and that form earned him the move to Germany two months ago.

Since his transfer to Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland has scored 12 goals in nine games with five of those coming in his first two games for the Germans.
