Man Utd boss Solskjaer talks Mata Serie A rumours; won't rule out Haaland reunion

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was coy today over the prospect of trying again for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer.

Haaland has been linked with United this week.

Solskjaer said at today's Europa League presser: “I think when you have had kids and players through as a coach you follow them.

“I keep in touch with Erling - it is great to see him become the player he has become.

“He is a Dortmund player and we wish him well there. Let's see what life will bring later on."

The manager was also asked about talk of Serie A interest in veteran midfielder Juan Mata.

He added: “I'm not surprised that teams are interested in him.

“One, he is a very good footballer, and two, he is a fantastic human being.

“I am sure Juan has been able to speak to other clubs if he wanted to. We have a good dialogue."
