Even though the winter transfer window is a little over two months away, speculation has been rife about the possible targets of European giants.
At Manchester United, this upcoming window is largely being viewed as the crucial domino effect that could rejuvenate the second half of their campaign after an underwhelming start to life.
Sunday’s win against Norwich City did boost the Red Devils back into the top half of the Premier League table and now they face a daunting task ahead in the remaining 28 games to try their hand at a top-four finish.
In order to do so, reinforcements have to be made and now we may have a definitive word about the arrival of one promising talent.
According to the Corriere Dello Sport, Manchester United’s possibility of signing 19-year-old Norwegian striker Erling Braut just got a big boost.
The report bases this off of the claim that Napoli, who would consider Haaland to be a ‘dream signing’ have conceded that the teenager is likely headed to Old Trafford.
Having functioned for Red Bull Salzburg, the starlet has emerged as a very promising prospect for European giants.
The Norwegian connection immediately brings the potential Ole Gunnar Solskjaer link to mind, particularly since the wonderkid was managed by the gaffer during his tenure at Molde, although everything does remain in the realm of speculation at the moment.
Incidentally, scout Loris Boni had the following to say about the youngster’s future destination to Il Mattino (via the Express): “Definitely in a great club. Salzburg, an excellent team, can only be a springboard for someone like him. If, then, his compatriot Solskjaer remains as coach at Manchester United, I think he can go there. Solskjaer was also the one who made him debut at Molde, as he coached the club at the time.”
