Erling Braut Haaland has made up his mind to join Man United.

The Norwegian rose to stardom this season following an impressive goalscoring record both in the Austrian Bundesliga and the Champions League. With 28 goals and 7 assists in 22 appearances across all competitions, there is no youngster more popular in the eyes of European giants.

It was reported earlier this season that the RB Salzburg man had already visited the training centres of a few clubs including Manchester United and Arsenal with his father Alf-Inge Haaland. Juventus are also said to be interested and desperate to bring the youngster in.

Borussia Dortmund were believed to have held talks with the striker over a potential move to Westfalenstadion recently. Unsettled by the news, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly traveled to Austria to pitch in a proposal to sign for the Red Devils.

It is said that the Salzburg starlet is United’s No. 1 transfer target as of now and would be prepared to import him as soon as during the January transfer window. Solskjaer’s ties with Molde seems to be a key factor the Old Trafford outfit are likely to use as leverage during negotiations.

In fact, if the Mirror were to be believed, the 19-year-old has told the Norwegian manager that he would like to move to Manchester.

Unfortunately, the teenager works with the infamous Mino Raiola, who is reportedly working on grouping him with his colleague Matthijis de Ligt at Juve.

On the other hand, the Mancunian giants are prepared to out-muscle the Italians and Dortmund financially. The Premier League giants seem to be keen on luring the forward with promises on starting alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Meanwhile, it is said that RB Leipzig are also keen on the former Man City star’s son, who can purchase him at a much smaller pricetag due to the clubs’ ties with Redbull.
