Edinson Cavani has done well since signing up for Manchester United, even though injuries have limited his playing time. However, the Uruguayan’s future may be far from Old Trafford, with reports suggesting that he’d leave at the end of the season.

Manchester United will definitely need to sign a top class centre-forward in his place, and there could be no better person who will fill his boots other than Erling Haaland.

The 20-year-old has risen to the apex of football strikers and is already seen as one of the best in the world at such a young age.

He recently became the youngest player in the history of the Champions League to score 20 goals in the competition, as he bagged a brace in the last-16 second leg tie against Sevilla.

United could have signed him up before his move to Dortmund but eventually pulled out of the deal. But United fans are determined that the club lay hold on the most sought after 20-year-old in the football world at the moment.

Meanwhile, Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, reminded everyone that he still has direct contact with the Manchester United target.

“It was only a matter of time but at the age of 20 to achieve the amount of goals he had is fantastic,” said Solskjaer.

“There’s not many more superlatives left out there and whatever I want to say to him I’ll say in Norwegian directly to him.”
