Erling Haaland spotted signing a Manchester United shirt

It’s not surprising to see a handful of top European clubs interested in signing Erling Braut Haaland right now.

After all, the RB Salzburg striker has been in incredible form this season.

The Norwegian has scored a crazy 28 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions this season – including eight in the Champions League.

The 19-year-old has the physique of a fullygrown professional and looks ready to play at the very highest level already.

Where will the €80 million striker be heading during next month’s transfer window?

Borussia Dortmund is one potential destination, as well as the well-trodden route of leaving RB Salzburg for RB Leipzig.

However, it’s looking increasingly likely that Haaland will join his former Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

The Sun are reporting that United are ‘close’ to securing a £76m deal for the forward, before loaning him back to Salzburg.

Solskjaer met with Haaland’s representatives last week and, when asked about the meeting, the United boss was coy: “He [Haaland] knows what he wants to do and knows what he is going to do.”

And those rumours will only intensify after images emerged on Tuesday night of Haaland signing a United shirt.

Eagle-eyed fans have spotted that he’s also started following United on social media – only the second club he follows after RB Salzburg. Make of that what you will…

Of course, the explanation behind the picture could be perfectly innocent.

It might just be a cheeky United fan asking for an autograph and Haaland was too polite to say no.

Either way, United fans are pretty excited right now. And you can’t exactly blame them.
