That kind of form is always going to get the big sides interested, and the Guardian have been among the sources to state that talks with Man Utd and others look to be on the cards.

And it now seems Solskjaer is majorly stepping up his interest in Haaland as the Mail claimed he’s taken a trip to Austria to meet Haaland.

It remains to be seen how much of an advantage that could give the Red Devils, with the Mail stating Solskjaer’s dramatic move came in response to the player already holding talks with Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.

MUFC could really do with improving their attack this January, so will hope it’s not too late for them to persuade Haaland to move to Old Trafford.
