We will tell you the whole truth about how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to bring Erling Haaland to Manchester United.

The similarities between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a striker and young Erling Haaland aren’t many, but they are substantial enough to impress the coach.

Let’s start with the fact that both are from Norway, they both have a kid’s face, they both have a killer instinct, and they both have a deep connection to English football.

In Ole’s case, we all know about the relationship he developed as one of Manchester United’s most celebrated players.

Erling has a more familial tie to the country through the city of Leeds. His father is former Norwegian defender Alf-Inge Haaland, who played for Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.

During his time at Leeds, the defender had a son and the kid grew up in England when he was a child.

Erling’s dream is to someday get to play at Leeds United and win the Premier League with this club, something that is not impossible but it is quite difficult in these modern times.

During his youth years, Erling started to play incredible football but he still got banter from his teammates for having a child-like face.

This earned him the nickname of “The Manchild” and thus the similarities with Solskjaer began taking shape.

The Manchester United manager was actually one of the first people who discovered Haaland, he was his coach at club Molde from Norway.

Since he started his career over there, Ole has praised him non-stop and even compared him to Romelu Lukaku at one time.

Haaland has the potential of being better than Lukaku.

The stats that this kid is racking up are simply outstanding, he has already scored 17 goals in only 9 matches played this season for Red Bull Salzburg.

This number already includes four hat-tricks in three different competitions, two in the Austrian Bundesliga, one in the Austrian Cup, and the three goals he recently scored in the UEFA Champions League.

The interview he offered after that historic moment in the competition was a perfect example of the type of personality this kid has.

The level of confidence he showed was very reminiscent to a young Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

We have a kid who knows how good he is at scoring goals, and actually believes he can be the best striker in the world. Sounds familiar?

We were looking for a player who could be as similar to the Swedish legend, but we were looking in all the wrong places.

We also need to keep in mind that this is the same player who scored 9 goals in a single match against Honduras during the under 20 World Cup back in May.

The numbers that this teenager is delivering this early in his career are simply not normal.

The best part of this story is that Haaland comes from a football background, he already has somebody who can guide him through the very first steps that he takes during his career.

Erling has everything to fulfill his destiny and become one of the best players in the world.

How can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bring him to Manchester United?

The connection is already there between the two, both nationality and their past at Molde are what can bring them together again.

However, Haaland doesn’t want to rush things and the still has that dream of someday playing for Leeds United.

The fans of that club are already excited for the possibility, they could get an extremely talented player who can actually help them get that promotion to the Premier League.

We still haven’t heard if Marcelo Bielsa is interested in signing this player but we bet he already knows enough about him.

Solskjaer will leave the kid to grow up to become a more complete player, he is not in a hurry to make him a Red Devil just yet.

For now, all Ole can do is praise Erling from a distance and watch him score as many goals as he wants.

One thing is for sure though, Solskjaer won’t hesitate to sign the youngster if he realizes that he keeps scoring goals against some of the best clubs in the world.

Fortunately for all of us, the next challenge Red Bull Salzburg has will be at Anfield Road against Liverpool.

Erling is already counting the days to get there, he knows this can be his big break to show the world what he is capable of.

Just imagine “The Manchild” scoring a goal against Virgil van Dijk, it would make all the headlines around the world.
