Man Utd still interested in signing of Norwegian forward

Erling Haaland’s move to Premier League giants Manchester United was never going to happen previous month, but could still be on the cards eventually.

The club were in the market for a striker during January and had their sights set on the Norwegian ace.

Haaland’s exploits with RB Salzburg had attracted plenty of interest and he eventually opted for a transfer to the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

The youngster had been desperate to play in Germany but will one day eye a move to the PL, an agent has stated, according to sports TV channel Sky Sports’ reporter Kaveh Solvekhol.

Kaveh said: “On Haaland, I got a couple of messages from an agent last week who wanted to correct me for something I had said on The Transfer Show.

“He told me that United had no chance of signing Haaland. He said he had known the striker since he was a five-year-old boy and it had always been his dream to play in Germany.

“According to the agent, Haaland will play in the Premier League one day but the plan was always for him to move to the Bundesliga last month.”

Erling has already scored seven goals for die Borusen in less than 140 minutes while United have not scored in their last three league matches.

Odion Ighalo was a surprise arrival at the club on deadline day as they seek cover for the injured England international Marcus Rashford who is expected to be out for several months.
