Borussia Dortmund beat out a host of teams — including Manchester United — for wunderkind Erling Haaland, but United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keeping in close contact with Haaland.

Solskjaer, who worked with Haaland at Molde, refused to rule out the possibility of bringing the striker to Manchester United in the future.

Saying in a press conference,

“When you have had kids and players through as a coach, you follow them and I keep in touch with Erling.”

“It’s great to see him become the player he has become and [how] he works to improve all the time. He’s a Dortmund player — we just wish him well there and let’s see what life will bring later on.”

“You know I can’t speak about Erling, he’s with Borussia Dortmund and it’s disrespectful to talk about it apart from I know him and speak to him,” Solskjaer added.

“Who wasn’t interested in him a year ago? Everybody would say you take the best players in the world.”

Haaland, who has scored 43 goals in 43 games for Dortmund, has a release clause in his contract that can be activated from June 2022.

Borussia Dortmund are struggling to claim a Bundesliga Champions League spot and also face the prospect of losing Jadon Sancho in the near future, so it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that Haaland could leave this summer.
