Man United keeping tabs with No.9 Norwegian centre-forward

Man United are ready to enter the market for Erling Haaland. The Red Devils are expected to target an ambitious move for the Borussia Dortmund striker soon, largely thanks to the incoming interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The ex-Schalke manager had played a crucial role in helping the Red Bulls bring Norway international from Molde back in winter 2019. Ralf was RB Leipzig project’s head at the time. Ralf also holds a good relationship with Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland, who plays a critical role in his son’s footballing decisions.

As such, the Red Devils believe they have a shot at snapping up Erling, who is seemingly becoming one of the best centre-forwards in Europe.

The 21-year-old striker has already broken many records since his move to the Bundesliga in winter 2020, with the centre-forward notably scoring 71 goals in only 70 competitive games for Borussia Dortmund.

Standing at 1.94m, the Norwegian striker has mesmerised the onlookers with his pace and physicality, making life difficult for defenders around Germany.

But it appears the Norwegian could soon be on his way out of Borussia Dortmund, especially after the club’s unexpected elimination from the Champions League group stages this campaign.

It essentially means Erling will have to play in the Europa League during the second half of the season. It could serve as a massive boost for interested sides like Man United, who are likely considering Haaland as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
