Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to seal the transfer of Erling Haaland and reportedly ‘keeps calling’ the Borussia Dortmund striker to convince him over a move.
The Manchester United manager is a huge admirer of his compatriot and tried to sign the Norway international before his move from Red Bull Salzburg to the Bundesliga.
He has gone from strength to strength since, banging in 33 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.
All of Europe’s heavyweights are determined to sign him, with Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich all credited with interest in the forward.
According to Spanish outlet
AS, Solskjaer is doing everything in his power to recruit the striker he coached at Molde.
And he is calling him regularly in order to put across United’s case.

Haaland has made it clear he wants to feel valued by whoever he joins next.
Asked by VG what the most important factor over a potential move would be, he replied: ‘They must want me.’
Manchester City have been installed as the favourites to sign the Norway striker but former United centre-back Rio Ferdinand feels Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane would be a better fit.
‘I think Harry Kane, he probably suits City better than anyone because he can play that deep-lying nine,’ he told Vibe with Five.
‘He doesn’t have to play up there, Haaland plays as an out and out nine. Harry Kane can drop in and add that extra number in midfield that Pep wants.
‘But if I’m Manchester United, Chelsea, City in the Premier League, I’d snap your hand off for Harry Kane like I would for Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe.’
