Man United & Real Madrid target Erling Braut Haaland – AS

Europe’s next big thing?

Both Manchester United and Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on Red Bull Salzburg’s Norwegian starlet Erling Braut Haaland.

Haaland has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season.

The forward has scored an impressive 11 goals and assisted five in just eight Austrian Bundesliga appearances.

However, it’s his performances in the Champions League which have made people stand up and take note.

In his Champions League debut, Haaland scored a hat-trick for Salzburg against Genk.

While that was impressive enough, the forward then followed that up by scoring just minutes after coming on at Anfield against Liverpool.

Salzburg did go on to lose the game, but Haaland’s stock still rose.

Now, it looks as though both Manchester United and Real Madrid are keeping their eye on him.

Real Madrid & Man United could battle for Norweigian starlet

In a report from AS, it’s suggested that Real Madrid are ‘set on’ Haaland.

They claim that ‘Real Madrid has the name of Haaland firmly on their list, despite already having invested in Luka Jovic in the summer, (22 in December)’.

Despite already having prodigious young talent on their books in the form of players like Vinicius jr., Rodrygo and Martin Ødegaard, AS suggest that ‘Erling Haaland is seen as the goals of the future.’

However, Real Madrid will also face competition from Manchester United.

AS suggest that Haaland ‘could very well be a major target for Manchester United’.

That’s because: ‘the club has shown an interest in the player and the Norwegian coach knows him better than anyone after managing him at Molde, giving him a chance to shine at just 16 years of age.’

If AS are correct, then Red Bull Salzburg may have to fight tooth and nail to keep Haaland next summer.
