When you become the third-youngest player in history to score a Champions League hat-trick, you know you must be at least half decent.
19-year-old Erling Braut Haaland’s phenomenal display for Red Bull Salzburg against Genk has well and truly put the young striker in the spotlight, and some of the biggest clubs in Europe will no doubt be sitting up and taking notice.
After watching the teenager’s exploits on Tuesday night, Manchester United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the Norwegian.
Many supporters of the Manchester side urged the Red Devils to launch an ambitious swoop for Haaland, with one fan in particular saying he is a “complete animal of a striker”.
Some Red Devils fans revealed their hope that Haaland’s Norwegian connection with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could potentially prove decisive for a future move.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Bring him home Ole.

That Haland kid is Norwegian, Ole is Norwegian, wouldn’t Ole know first hand all about the young man and what his potential would be? He looks like a complete animal of a striker. #MUFC

Not that interested in the millions of targets we’re rumoured with, but can #MUFC please just sign Haland? He’s everything we need. Has worked with Ole and the perfect striker he’s craving. #UCL https://t.co/gBXg7jmWd7
