The Punch - - SPORTS -

Manch­ester United man­ager Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer says promis­ing young striker Er­ling­brauthaa­land has de­cided what he wants to do when the trans­fer win­dow opens next month.

Haa­land, 19, is one of the most cov­eted play­ers in Europe af­ter scor­ing 28 goals in 22 ap­pear­ances for Red Bull Salzburg this sea­son.

Sol­sk­jaer worked with Haa­land for two years at Molde, giv­ing the striker his de­but at 16. He is un­der­stood to have flown to Aus­tria on Fri­day to talk with the teenager.

“He knows what he wants to do and knows what he is go­ing to do,” said Sol­sk­jaer, when asked if he had any ad­vice for the young­ster.

“I don’t have to of­fer any ad­vice to other teams’ play­ers.”

Bun­desliga duo Borus­sia Dort­mund and RB Leipzig are un­der­stood to have reg­is­tered an in­ter­est in the Nor­we­gian, who scored in his first five Cham­pi­ons League group matches this sea­son and who made his full in­ter­na­tional de­but in Septem­ber.
