Norwegian media outlet Dagbladbet, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big admirer of the Salzburg forward.

Manchester United will apparently agree to send Erling Haaland back to Red Bull Salzburg for the rest of the season if the club can secure a permanent deal for him in January.

The young Norwegian has already netted as many as 26 goals in 18 matches in the ongoing season- with seven of them coming in four UEFA Champions League appearances and a couple of them coming in OFB Cup matches.

The Athletic has learned that the United manager asked Simon Wells to specifically monitor the 19-year-old, and the scout took in a Champions League game featuring Haaland.

Solskjaer developed a relationship with Wells when he was Manchester United's scout in Scandinavia.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils are aware of the transfer interest in Haaland from Europe's elite and they are hoping to steal the march on them with a mid-season deal.

Haaland initially rejected advances from both United and Juventus so as not to stunt his development and opted instead to join Salzburg, the Austrian club paying Molde just five million euros for the striker in January.

Chelsea have reportedly been linked with a move for Haaland, with the club scouting the striker, according to the Mail.

Real Madrid are believed to be keen on the 19-year-old despite signing Luka Jovic, 21, from Frankfurt last summer.
