Manchester United boss wants to agree deal for 26-goal sensation

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly urged the club’s hierarchy to push through a transfer deal for Erling Braut Haaland at the end of the season.

The Norwegian has been a sensational signing for Red Bull Salzburg and he has already amassed 26 goals from just 18 appearances across all competitions this term.

In fact, he has not solely contributed in the Austrian top-flight and has bagged seven goals in the Champions League which includes a hat-trick against Genk.

According to DagBladet, Solskjaer has given the go-ahead for the Red Devils to make a move for Haaland with whom he has previously worked together at former club Molde.

A number of other sides including Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich have also been credited with an interest but United are bound to face a bidding battle when the marksman is available for sale next summer.

Haaland recently bagged his fifth hat-trick of the campaign and his prolific scoring prowess and height has earned him comparisons with Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Leeds-born striker is currently said to be valued at around £89m but this price could increase further, should he continue with his sublime scoring form through the entire campaign.
