Haaland Snr breaks silence on Man Utd link for son Erling

Alf Inge Haaland would be happy if his son signed for Manchester United.

Erling Braut Haaland scored a hat-trick in the first half of RB Salzburg's 6-2 hammering of Genk on his Champions League debut on Tuesday.

Haaland's dad Alf Inge represented both Leeds and Manchester City - two clubs that consider Man United to be bitter rivals - during his career in football.

"It would be nice," the Norwegian told TV2 when asked about the United interest. "It is important to distinguish between being a supporter and a job.

"So I have a very relaxed relationship with that. It's a little different when it's serious."

He added: "Yes, I think most players dream of being in the Premier League at one time or another. It's the league that gets the most attention around, and it has very good quality teams.

"There is no doubt the Premier League is attractive to him."
