RB Leipzig coach Nagelsmann discusses Haaland meeting

RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann has lifted on his meeting with RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland this week.

A target for Manchester United, Haaland was in Germany for talks with RBL and Borussia Dortmund.

Nagelsmann said: “I tried to explain to him in good English what my idea of football is.

“I think it went quite well.

“You can say relatively little after such conversations, because they are usually very one-sided.

“You say a lot as a coach while the agent and the player mostly listen."

The 19-year-old is also understood to have visited Leipzig's Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, and Nagelsmann admitted that the upcoming game between the pair could impact the striker's decision.

He added: “We would have to ask him about that, but there might be an argument!"
