Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drops major hint on Erling Haaland transfer

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he still keeps in touch with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland amid interest from Manchester United.

Solskjaer worked with the Norway international at Molde and attempted to take him to Old Trafford before the striker swapped Red Bull Salzburg for Borussia Dortmund at the start of last year.

Manchester United remain interested in signing the striker and Solskjaer has admitted he still keeps in touch with the 20 year old.

“I think when you have had kids and players through as a coach you follow them,” Solskjaer said when asked about Haaland.

“I keep in touch with Erling – it is great to see him become the player he has become.

“He is a Dortmund player and we wish him well there. Let’s see what life will bring later on.”

The forward has already scored an incredible 92 career goals in just 137 games. This season, he has 27 across 25 games in all competitions.
