Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept on calling Erling Haaland to convince him to join the Premier League club, MySportDab reports.
The race for the best young striker in the world is now getting more interesting.
It’s only 18 months ago that Borussia Dortmund signed Haaland from RB Salzburg for £18million.
Dortmund look likely to miss out on Champions League football for next season, which could determine Haaland’s future at the club.
The Champions League is a major source of income for a club like Borussia Dortmund, among others after the financial issue caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Haaland was clearly frustrated after he scored twice on Saturday but Dortmund ended the match with a 2-2 draw at Koln.
The draw at Koln leaves Dortmund with a more difficult task to finish in the Bundesliga top four this season.
MySportDab understands that Haaland could now move on from Borussia Dortmund and continue his football career elsewhere.
Manchester United are one of many clubs in the race to sign Haaland after missing out on the opportunity over 13 months ago.
According to Spanish Newspaper AS, United Coach Solskjaer has keep on calling Haaland regularly to convince him to sign for Manchester United.
Solskjaer and Haaland have remained in contact ever since their days together at Molde.
Solskjaer even travelled to Salzburg in 2019 to talk with his former player and discuss a transfer plan.
However, Haaland snubbed Solskjaer to join Borussia Dortmund, and the decision did not affect their relationship.
The 20-year-old is now the youngest football player to reach 20 UEFA Champions League goals.
Solskjaer was asked about Haaland’s record in the Champions League.
He said: “We all knew it would happen but at 20 years old to score that number of goals, he is fantastic.
“There’s not many more like him out there and if I want to say anything to him I’ll say in Norwegian.”
The bigger problem is that Manchester United have serious contenders when it comes to signing Haaland.
Manchester City, PSG, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all been linked with Haaland this summer.
