It seems that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a busy boy on Friday. According to the Daily Mail, the Manchester United boss made a quick dash over to Austria to speak to RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland.
The teenage center-forward is reported to have spoken to both Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig recently and those talks are said to have prompted Solskjaer to pull his finger out.
The United boss is supposed to have taken a flight to Salzburg early on Friday morning before returning to Manchester in the afternoon to prepare for Sunday’s clash with Everton.
As with all the best transfer stories, a flight tracker is involved…
Daily Mail story suggests United’s transfer priorities are a center-forward and two central midfielders. If whispers elsewhere are to be believed, we could have the complete set.
The Telegraph says the Red Devils have been alerted to Atletico Madrid’s willingness to lower their asking price for Saul Niguez. The Spain midfielder’s release clause is currently set at £125million but it seems Atletico are willing to do a deal if someone plonks £85million on the table.
