Manchester United are tracking Norwegian teenager Erling Braut Haaland, according to ESPN. The youngster was in fine form in the last game against Brann as he scored all four goals in the win for Molde.
The report claims that United’s Scandinavian scout Tommy Moller Nielsen watched the game as the 17-year-old striker scored all four goals and the youngster was also watched by Leeds United, his father’s former club.
Haaland scored all the goals in a 21-minute spell and has bagged 6 goals in 13 games for Molde this season. The youngster also has been in great form for Norway U19, having scored 5 goals in just 3 appearances.
There is some bad blood between United and Haaland’s father, Alfie. Our former captain Roy Keane was embroiled in a controversy as he admitted to going out to injure the Manchester City player in a derby in 2001.
However, Haaland junior seems to be ready for a move as he looks set to continue his growth in football. The youngster could be sent to the academy to work and polish on his skills before he can be taken into the reserve side.
There could be another link which we can use to sign the Norwegian up and that is Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
The former United star is actually the manager of Molde and if we can talk to the club, Haaland could just become a first-team star in the coming years.
