By Betty Irabor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already begun making his move to convince Erling Haaland to join him at Old Trafford in the summer.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is widely expected to leave the German club later this year, especially with their qualification for next season’s Champions League appearing in doubt.
His potential availability has sparked Europe’s elite into pursuit and Solskjaer is reportedly using his ties to his fellow Norwegian to try to convince him to head to the red side of Manchester. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City also hold a strong interest.
Spanish publication AS say that Solskjaer ‘keeps calling’ Haaland to sell the United project to him and convince him that his future lies at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer and Haaland worked together when the United boss was in charge at Molde in Norway and he is hoping they can join forces once again in the Premier League.
Haaland has been in prolific scoring form for both club and country this season – so far, he has fired in 39 goals in just 36 appearances in all competitions.
