Haaland Snr: My Man City ties won't stop Man Utd move for Erling - if he wants it

The father of Erling Haaland says he would have no problem if the RB Salzburg striker chose to join Manchester United.

While Haaland played for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Molde, it's been suggested a move to Old Trafford would be avoided due to the Manchester City ties of his father, Alfe-Inge.

However, Haaland Snr told Expressen: "No, it's been 100 years since I played there. Erling doesn't need that 'parachute' from me, he has to make his own, independent decisions.

"I know he has a good relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has helped him a lot and Erling has great respect for him. There are many rumours, but there are positive ones. We have great respect for both clubs and both have a great history."
