Manchester United make ANOTHER check on Salzburg’s Erling Haaland as head of global scouting Marcel Bout watches wonderkid in Liverpool loss

  • Manchester United once again took a look at young striker Erling Braut Haaland
  • United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big admirer of the Norwegian wonderkid
  • The pair worked together at Molde and the club watched him on Tuesday night
  • He worked hard but struggled to prevent Liverpool running out as 2-0 winners 

Manchester United head of global scouting Marcel Bout made another check on transfer target Erling Braut Haaland on Tuesday night.

Haaland worked hard but ultimately in vain and was unable to prevent his side Red Bull Salzburg going down 2-0 to Liverpool in their decisive Champions League group encounter.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer worked with Haaland previously at Molde and wants the 19-year old to join up with him at Old Trafford.

United have plenty of competition from clubs across Europe but Solskjaer remains hopeful a deal can be concluded with Salzburg by the summer.

Haaland finds himself a wanted man across the continent with Italian champions Juventus and German giants Borussia Dortmund also said to be keen to sign him. 

The Norwegian has been sublime this season with a tally of 28 goals, including eight in the Champions League. 

United also want to add two midfielders to their squad as they bid to kick on in January and press for a Champions League place.
