The relationship between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Erling Haaland ‘was not as close as once was thought’, according to the Manchester Evening News.
In fact, Manchester United may have actually boosted their chances of signing the Borussia Dortmund striker merely by sacking the Norwegian.
In fact, it’s the current Old Trafford interim manager Ralf Rangnick who has ‘a strong bond’ with the 21-year-old and his father, Alf-Inge Haaland.
The German, who is set to transition into a two-year consultancy role at the club at the end of the season, gives Man United ‘new hope’ over signing Haaland.
Erling Haaland so far is understandably undecided on his future with the youngster still under contract with Borussia Dortmund.
His agent Mino Raiola is reportedly said to be willing to offer his client to the highest bidders as he is determined to make the Norwegian the highest-paid footballer in the world.
On the other hand, Dortmund is said to be adamant to let the player leave next summer.
