Haaland, who has become the hottest topic in European football ahead of next month’s transfer window, is wanted by the likes of United, Borussia DortmundJuventus, and RB Leipzig.

Currently a Red Bull Salzburg player, a swap to sister club Leipzig would appear to be on the cards, but the youngster apparently has other ideas.

As does his agent Mino Raiola, who also manages Paul Pogba and Matthijs de Ligt among other big name stars.

Raiola wants to keep Haaland’s options open, but United boss Solskjaer flew to Salzburg on Friday to make a sales pitch to their No 1 transfer target, and the striker seems to have been impressed.

He would be joining up with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front for United, making for quite the potent strike force.

Raiola may look for Haaland to join up with de Ligt at Juventus though, which was a big-money move he helped get through the door earlier this year.

Haaland may have already played his last game for Salzburg. He didn’t feature against Hartberg through injury, and now the Austrian Bundesliga is on a two-month break.

The 19-year-old has reportedly been to visit the training grounds of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, and allegedly made a quick stop off at Carrington to see the Manchester United facilities.

Now it remains to be seen which team will put up the cash, with Haaland currently rated at around £80million.
