Manchester United have once again been urged to make a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
The Red Devils have long been linked with a switch for the sensational Norwegian, with Gazzetta dello Sport recently suggesting that talks between the Old Trafford club and the striker have already taken place.
He seemingly has plenty of suitors heading into the summer transfer window but former United midfielder Paul Scholes has encouraged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make a move sooner rather than later, with Haaland being a “perfect choice” for the club.
It’s a statement that is certainly tough to disagree with. Since arriving in Germany from Red Bull Salzburg just under a year-and-a-half ago, the 20-year-old has continued his stunning goalscoring form for Borussia Dortmund.
Current Red Devils striker Edinson Cavani could apparently be set to leave the club in the summer, with a move to Boca Juniors being mooted. Having struck nine goals in all competitions so far this season, including two in his last two matches, the Uruguayan would certainly need replacing should he depart.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer’s current alternative options are struggling to find their top form. The currently injured Anthony Martial has scored just four goals in the Premier League this season, whilst Mason Greenwood only has three strikes of his own in the league.
Haaland should certainly rectify all of those problems if he makes the move from Borussia Dortmund. It could then be concluded that he would be the “perfect” signing as suggested by Scholes, and one which Ed Woodward should absolutely consider in the summer transfer window.
