Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to transfer speculation surrounding Erling Haaland’s future and says the forward will ‘make his own mind up’ on his next club.
Haaland is the most in-demand player in world football at present with Europe’s wealthiest clubs all monitoring the forward’s situation at Borussia Dortmund, who could look to cash-in on their prized asset amid the prospect of missing out on Champions League football.
The Norway international’s representatives have been in Spain this week for discussions with both Barcelona and Real Madrid, whilst reports have suggested that Dortmund have set a price-tag of £128m on a player who has scored 49 goals in 49 appearances for the Bundesliga side.
Interest is also thought to be high in the player from the Premier League, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all linked in recent months.
Solskjaer has previously discussed the forward having worked with Haaland at Norwegian side Molde, though has refused to comment on speculation linking the player with Old Trafford ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Brighton.
“I am focussing on the next two months and the ones who are here,” Solskjaer at his pre-match press conference.
“It is not fair to talk about Erling as Man Utd manager. He will make his own mind up.”
