Red Bull Salzburg’s Erling Braut Haaland cannot stop scoring in the Champions League and netted his eighth goal of the European competition in his side’s victory over Genk, to take his overall tally for this season to 27 goals.
Friday’s edition of AS claims Real Madrid are still keen on the 19-year-old, but there are other suitors like Manchester United and Juventus.
Between these clubs, the Red Devils are ‘best placed’ to secure the Norway international’s services because of his compatriot and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who coached the striker at Molde.
A move to Old Trafford will help the player get regular minutes and it’s not thought that would be the case at Real Madrid or Juventus.
Haaland has time to decide his next destination and AS adds ‘his father and agent’ Alf-Inge Håland is aware the next step will be a decisive one in the Salzburg star’s career.
Håland has also considered the possibility of playing in the Bundesliga before joining a top European club.
It’s not the first time AS have pushed United ahead of other clubs in the Haaland chase. On November 18th, the Spanish newspaper reported the English side are the ‘strongest club’ in the transfer race for the frontman.
