Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has blossomed into one of the finest strikers in world football at the moment, and he recently became the youngest player in Champions League history to hit 20 goals.

Haaland has helped Dortmund seal a place in the Champions League quarterfinal, and the 20-year-old will be sought after by the biggest clubs in Europe during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea were among the clubs heavily linked with Haaland before his eventual move to Borussia Dortmund.

Now, the 20-year-old star will command massive bids from many of Europe’s biggest clubs during the summer, even though he has a release clause of £60m that can only be triggered in the summer of 2022.

Haaland has already surpassed United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer as the highest scoring Norwegian in the tournament’s history, and the United boss has admitted that he’d speak to him directly.

Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has a relationship with United transfer target Erling Haaland, as he coached the young striker during his time in Norway.

“It was only a matter of time but at the age of 20 to achieve the amount of goals he had is fantastic,” said Solskjaer.

“There’s not many more superlatives left out there and whatever I want to say to him I’ll say in Norwegian directly to him.”
