Ever since Erling Braut Håland scored a hattrick against Genk on his Champions League debut, the number of reports linking the striker away from Red Bull Salzburg has rocketed.

Manchester United have been discussed as one of the clubs believed to be interested in the 19-year-old, who already has 18 goals and five assists in 11 matches this season.

The teenager has opened the door for future move to England and publicly praised his former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

AS now claims the Norway international is on Real Madrid’s radar following his fine start to the season.

It’s claimed Håland ‘fits like a glove’ and his price tag is also not crazy. AS suggest this is around €12m (because that is listed by Transfermarkt), yet that’s clearly completely unrealistic.

After mentioning Real Madrid and the player rejecting Juventus after being advised by his agent Mino Raiola, the newspaper also talks about the Red Devils’ interest in the teenager.

AS explain the frontman will be the ‘primary goal’ for Premier League side next summer, if Solskjaer is still in charge at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian coach is under pressure at Manchester United following a poor start to the season that includes two wins from eight league games.

Even if Solskjaer is at United next summer, the 20-time English champions could face competition from Real Madrid for Håland as he remains a target for the future.
