United could move in to sign forward, club director gives confirmation of approach
Erling Braut Haaland has attracted the interest of Manchester United and that is based on the words of Molde director Øystein Neerland, who has revealed the Red Devils has sent scouts to watch their talented 17-year-old.
Haaland recently scored four goals in 20 minutes for the Norwegian club, who are managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, against league rivals Brann in a 4-0 win and it was reported United had someone there to see it.
“There are a lot of interested clubs, including Manchester United,” Neerland told TV2 in Norway.
“I know that there have been representatives from them at Aker Stadium on several occasions this season, but I can neither confirm nor deny whether they were in Bergen (where Haaland scored four times).
If the surname sounds familiar it is because he is the son of Alf-Inge Haaland, who played for Leeds and Man City, two of Man United’s biggest rivals, and just so happens to have had a long running feud with former Old Trafford skipper Roy Keane.
And naturally it is with his father’s former clubs where Haaland junior’s loyalties lie – from a fan’s point of view anyway.
Speaking in February 2017, Haaland, born shortly after his dad left Elland Road for Nottingham Forest in 2000, admitted his dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds
“I want to be the best possible,” he told Aftenposten.
“The dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds.
“In addition, the goal is to become a better player than my dad was. I hope to get more caps than he did.”http://www.fanchesterunited.com/mourinho-could-move-for-forward-director-confirms-united-interest/
