Salzburg played their final game of the calendar year last Saturday and all attention has now turned to Haaland’s future.

United have been long-term admirers of the 19-year-old, who has already scored an astonishing 28 goals in all competitions this season.

Solskjaer is desperate to add to his attacking ranks at Old Trafford in the coming weeks, and if things go well over the next few days, he could be the Red Devils’ first big signing of the decade.
