According to former MU coach – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, MU once missed the opportunity to recruit striker Erling Haaland for £ 4 million.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the manager of this season’s 51-goal Manchester City player, Erling Haaland, during his time in charge of Molde. The development of the player born in 2000 also has an imprint from the Norwegian teacher.
After leaving Molde, Haaland signed with RB Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund. Last summer, he joined Man City for £ 51 million. The 22-year-old star quickly integrated and proved his ability at Etihad Stadium.
Recently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that MU had missed the opportunity to recruit striker Erling Haaland for £ 4 million. He said: “I called MU about 6 months before taking over the job at MU, I told them I wanted to work with Haaland at Old Trafford but they didn’t listen. I asked for £4m for Haaland but they didn’t sign him.”
United are currently hungry for an excellent No 9 despite Marcus Rashford having scored 29 goals this season. Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst both fell short of expectations. If MU recruits Haaland as Solskjaer wants, maybe things will be different.
Solskjaer was MU’s coach from 2018 to 2021, but could not help the Reds win any titles. Yesterday, Haaland won the British Football Journalists Association’s Player of the Year award with 82% of the vote.
