Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is pushing to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
That’s according to The Manchester Evening News’ chief writer Samuel Luckhurst, and a number of United fans have flocked to the update on social media.
Haaland came close to making the move to Old Trafford two years ago and appears to be firmly back on the club’s radar ahead of the New Year.
Will United land Haaland?
Yes, I'm confident!
No, he'll go elsewhere!
According to Luckhurst, Rangnick has recently made contact with Haaland’s father over a possible move to United, with Champions League football essential to attract the forward.
United fans react
Well-known page @utdreport shared the news regarding Rangnick’s contact with Alf-Inge Haaland on Twitter. It didn’t take long for several United supporters to have their say on a possible move, with one labelling it as ‘huge’.
“If Ralf gets Haaland over the line could be our biggest win since Fergie left”
“RALFFFFFFFF. DOUBLE RRRR. ROLLS ROYCE’S”
“It would be huge, but I doubt it will happen”
“Rangnick will be a United legend in my books if he pulls this off”
“Please make it happen”
