Solskjaer remained elusive on Haaland question


Erling Haaland continues to generate talk of interest from Manchester United, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is staying tight-lipped when it comes to his reported interest in a fellow Norwegian, reports Goal.

The Red Devils boss continues to be quizzed on reported striker targets, but is giving little away when it comes to recruitment plans at Old Trafford.

The teenage sensation currently on the books of Red Bull Salzburg has been attracting plenty of attention with his performances in the 2019-20 Champions League.

A flurry of goals, to go with those recorded at domestic level, have seen the 19-year-old son of former Leeds and Manchester City star Alf-Inge draw admiring glances from clubs across Europe.

Those at Old Trafford are said to be positioning themselves in the queue ahead of a potential transfer scramble, but Solskjaer is giving little away when it comes to his recruitment plans.

He has conceded that he would welcome a prolific frontman onto his books, having seen Roy Keane talk up an approach for Tottenham star Harry Kane, but is reluctant to be drawn on Haaland.

The United boss told reporters when asked about the supposed interest on the back of a 1-0 Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade on Thursday: “I don't think it's the time now for me to talk about other team's strikers.

“I spoke about Harry Kane yesterday and Erling today, I don't think it's right for me.”

Haaland has already worked under Solskjaer before at Molde, recording 20 goals in 50 appearances.

For now, though, the Red Devils boss is fully focused on those already at his disposal.
