Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Haaland is reportedly flying to England Friday morning for further talks with Manchester United ahead of a potential transfer – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are thrilled.
According to the Daily Mail, the 19-year-old will jet into Manchester on Friday morning as he discusses a move to Old Trafford and is accompanied by his father Alf-Inge Haaland on the flight.
The report details United appear to be in the driving seat now despite interest from the likes of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig too.
Haaland has been in sensational form for Austrian champions Salzburg this season and is one of the most talked about teenagers in world football.
The Norwegian striker has scored 28 goals in just 22 games across all competitions this season.
His performances in the Champions League group stages really caught the eye, with eight goals in the six fixtures.
A selection of United supporters on social media are excited that Haaland appears to be on their way to him and believe he will be a hit.
He would be another young forward in the United ranks if he joins them alongside the likes Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
Here are some United fans on the latest reports:
Can’t see Håland being another Bruno Fernandes situation at all. There’s widespread rumblings about the transfer both domestically and internationally and it just seems there is way too much substance to the rumours. Surely it’s more likely that not he ends up a #MUFC player ??
