Manchester United would consider loaning Erling Haaland back to Red Bull Salzburg if they can agree a deal for the striker in January, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 19-year-old forward has attracted interest from clubs in Europe after impressing for RB Salzburg in the Champions League and Austrian Bundesliga this season.
Haaland, who has made no secret of his desire to play in the Premier League, has been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

Haaland is reportedly a top transfer for Manchester United.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown just how interested he is in Haaland by sending his ‘personal scout’, Simon Wells, to watch the teenage wonderkid, according to The Athletic.
Solskjaer asked Wells from the club’s recruitment team to closely assess players who could strengthen his under-achieving squad earlier this season.
The pair know each other well from his time as manager of Molde in Norway because Wells was United’s scout in the Scandinavia region at the time.

It was Wells who helped seal the signing of Swedish centre half Victor Lindelof from Benfica in 2017.
Haaland has notched an exceptional 26 goals in 18 appearances for the Austrian outfit so far this season.
The son of former Leeds and Manchester City player Alf-Inge was born in Yorkshire and harbours ambitions to follow in his father’s footsteps and play in the Premier League.
He told reporters recently in Salzburg: ‘I want to be the best. I have dreamed of playing for the best clubs in the world my whole life, and I especially like English football.’
