Erling Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland, has spoken up on his son’s future, amid growing reports he could join Manchester United soon.

The 20 year old, who joined Borussia Dortmund last year, is said to still be on Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar, after snubbing United for the Bundesliga side.

But the father of the Norwegian, who is expected to stay with Dortmund until 2022, has revealed he is focused on helping Dortmund win trophies, and isn’t considering a move abroad for now, although anything could still happen in future.

He told Sport 1, “When you play well, it’s only logical that big clubs knock on the door. But we’re talking about speculation here.

“At the moment it is not in Erling’s or in my head that another club will be vying for him. We signed a long contract with Dortmund and BVB have a fantastic team for Erling right now. We don’t want to look any further yet.

“You never know what will happen. We haven’t talked about such a step yet. I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That is his goal. Erling can still achieve a lot in Germany and make great progress. Abroad is not a priority for us.”
