Manchester United were close to penning down a deal with Erling Haaland last summer but Borussia Dortmund snatched the talented youngster from them at the end of the transfer window. The Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer talked about Haaland in an interview and this is what he said;
"When you have had kids and players come through as a coach, you follow them and I do keep in touch with Erling," he said in a press conference on Wednesday. "It's great to see him become the player he has become and how he works to improve all the time. "I can't speak about Erling because he's at Borussia Dortmund and it's disrespectful to talk too much about it. Apart from that, I know him and I speak to him."
The reporter went on to ask whether United were in for Erling Haaland in the summer and this is what he said, "Who wasn't interested in him a year ago?" the coach said. "Everybody would say you would take the best players in the world and Erling is a top player."
