Solskjaer 'flew to Salzburg on Friday morning to make potential January transfer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer flew to Salzburg early on Friday morning to make a potential transfer of Haaland to Manchester United's.

Solskjaer made the dramatic intervention after it emerged that Haaland had met with representatives of Borussia Dortmund and Red Bull Leipzig in recent days.

The United manager then returned to Manchester to prepare for Sunday's clash with Everton at Old Trafford.

The 19-year-old Red Bull Salzburg striker, who played under Solskjaer at Molde, is one of the most wanted players in Europe after scoring 28 goals in 22 games for Salzburg this season.

The player's father, former Manchester City and Leeds midfielder Alf-Inge Haaland, said last night: 'I hope you understand that I cannot comment on all the rumours that are going on at the moment.'

United have made signing a striker and two central midfielders their main priority over the next two transfer windows.

While there is an acceptance at Old Trafford that recruitment may be difficult in January, there is a possibility the Haaland deal could be fast-tracked ahead of schedule. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
