Alfe-Inge Haaland has compared United with Borussia Dortmund in a glowing show of praise amid speculation linking his son with Old Trafford.
“Manchester United have achieved great success in recent years," Haaland told Sport1.
“The club is also trying to build something new there. But to draw comparison now is not so easy because he (Erling) is already playing in Dortmund.
“These are two very traditional clubs with a large fan base and a glorious history. Man United is a very proud club, just like Dortmund in Germany."
