Manchester United have already sealed massive moves for Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is building a very formidable squad.

United aren’t in need of a striker for next season, with Edinson Cavani agreeing to extend his stay for one more year during the summer. However, United are already targeting a top striker for next summer.

Chelsea have been desperate to sign Erling Haaland this summer, but Manchester United are confident they will win the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund striker, despite Chelsea’s desperation.

Manchester United have tied Solskjaer to the club for the next three years, and The Sun claim Solskjaer will use his relationship with Haaland to lure him to Old Trafford next season.

Solskjaer has remained in close contact with the striker since they worked together at Molde, when he was managing the Norwegian side.

Also, with Manchester United’s capture of Jadon Sancho, Haaland would be keen to play alongside his former teammate whom he formed a stunning partnership with.
