Erling Haaland follows Man Utd and Rashford on Twitter as £85m ace’s dad ‘visits Carrington’ ahead of January transfer

By | 19th November 2019

ERLING HAALAND’S social media activity makes it look increasingly likely he will become a Manchester United player during the January transfer window.

It was revealed earlier today that the Norwegian striker’s dad travelled to the Red Devils’ training complex in Carrington, and now Haaland has followed both United and Marcus Rashford on Twitter.

Haaland’s dad was a defender and midfielder for several English clubs back in the 1990s and early 2000s – Nottingham Forest, Leeds and United’s rivals Manchester City.

And he was reportedly seen at the three-time European champions’ training ground, fuelling further rumours about a move to the club.

Last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly told United’s hierarchy to go all out to sign the whizkid, who has an £85million price tag on his head.

Haaland played for Solskjaer at Molde and scored 20 goals in 50 games for the Norwegians side.

It’s thought that close relationship could sway any deal in favour of the Red Devils.

Currently playing at Austrian Bundesliga side RB Salzburg, the 19-year-old has bagged a remarkable 26 goals in just 18 appearances so far this season.

He has been an integral part of the team who are unbeaten in the league this season having won 12 and drawn two.

Yet despite Salzburg sitting pretty at the top of the table, a move to United now seems inevitable.
