Solskjaer admits Man Utd 'like Haaland'

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed interest in RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland.

Haaland, 19, has been in prolific goalscoring form this season, scoring 24 goals in 20 games in all competitions including eight in the Champions League.

That has led to him being linked with several clubs across Europe, but United are always said to have had an advantage due to Solskjaer's knowledge of the teenager from their time together at Molde.

"He is a player I like," Solskjaer told Viasport.

"We are looking for good players all the time.

"Erling has had a good development, so he has to develop further wherever he decides.

"I don't need to talk so much about him, but we as a team always look for players who can complement the others we have, and then we see what we end up with."
