Manchester United Legend Gives Blessing To Sign One Of His Players
July 09, 2018
Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Molde youngster Erling Braut Haaland by his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 17-year-old striker, born in Leeds, is the son of former Manchester City man Alf-Inge Haaland, who famously had his career ended by a tackle from Roy Keane.
Despite not yet making a senior appearance for Norway, Haaland has made a stunning start to life under Molde boss Solskjaer, scoring ten goals in 28 appearances.
The ex United star admitted that, while the youngster supports Leeds United, he could see a move happening in the future.
“He is probably not the world’s biggest Manchester United fan,” Solskjaer told VG.
“But if they come to the door, there are not many who say no to that.”
Manchester United are present at Brann Stadion today to scout young striker Erling Braut Håland (17), according to Norwegian Eurosport. They're said to have scouted him for a while and want to see him against Brann (who are top of the league).

It would be some time before Haaland would be ready to play for the first team at Old Trafford.
