It is no secret that the Salzburg striker is among the hottest footballers in Europe right now.  Many top clubs, including Juventus and Borussia Dortmund, are lining up for his signature. So is Manchester United. Their manager, Solskjaer, is no stranger to buying Haaland. The Norwegian bought his compatriot when he was the manager at Molde and the pair share an excellent relationship since. And that relationship has further strengthened the Haaland to United links.

“He has had a huge impact on my life, both as a person and as a trainer. He has taught me a lot,” Haaland on Solskjaer in September to Norwegian outlet TV2. The teenager also told the public about his dream to play in England. “I have dreamed of playing for the best clubs in the world my whole life, and I especially like English football.’’

The 18-year-old certainly fits the bill when it comes to age in the Solskjaer rebuild at Old Trafford. Having worked with him, the Baby-Faced Assasin must also be aware of his work ethic and professionalism as he aims at a cultural reboot in the Manchester United dressing room. The Norwegian International’s quality is undoubtedly impressive, backed up by the 28 goals he has scored this season.
