Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: I urged Manchester United to sign Erling Haaland

Manchester United former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer talked about his adventure at the club, and it was especially interesting when he talked about Erling Haaland. Haaland is currently the best striker in the world and attracts a lot of attention.

The Norwegian broke many records. However, what is little known is that Solskjaer proposed to the club to buy Erling Haaland, even while he was the manager of Molde. Then the young Haaland also played for Molde. ‘I got in contact with United because we had this talented striker who they should have had.

But they didn’t listen, unfortunately. Four million, I asked for. But they never signed him. Four million! Don’t ask (where he is now). He’s too good.’- he said, as quoted by METRO.

Manchester United: Many quality players really want to come

Manchester United should not make the same mistakes in the future if they want to be competitive for the very top.

Erik ten Hag said at yesterday's press conference that many famous footballers are interested in playing for United. Things are completely different now since the Dutchman has been here and it seems that United will have no problem bringing in the best.

‘I see a big difference in comparison with last year,’ -he said. ‘There were a lot of reservations last year when I spoke with players and now many players see the project, what’s going on, the dynamic and the ambition in this project, the quality especially.

They are really keen to come, I’ve noticed that. It looks like there were a lot of reservations last year, a lot of doubts when we approached players. This year, many quality players really want to come.' We will see how active the Red Devils will be on the summer market this year. They need reinforcements at this moment.
