Earlier this week, we brought you claims made by SportBild that Erling Haaland sees himself joining any of the six clubs and the list includes Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.

SportBild also stated the striker will only leave Borussia Dortmund for a ‘top club’, provided the ‘overall package’ is convincing.

AS on Friday explain the 20-year-old is ‘within range’, most likely for the La Liga winners.

The newspaper also discuss the competition Zinedine Zidane’s side are set to face for signing the Norway international.

‘Precisely Manchester United’, states the report and add the Red Devils are ‘one of the four teams’ leading the chase to ‘try to sign’ the goalscoring star in the next market.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows the frontman first hand, having managed him at Molde. This could be an advantage for the Old Trafford club.

AS say United ‘will try to assert in their favour the presence of a Norwegian like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, idol of his country during the 90s and 2000s’.

The report also explains Real Madrid view Manchester City as their ‘main rival’ in the transfer. The Spanish giants are hopeful of convincing Haaland with their project and also use their good relationship with BVB to beat competition.

Time should tell whether Solskjaer can be a huge factor in convincing Haaland to snub other clubs in favour of joining United.
