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

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