Man Utd are reportedly in the market desperately searching for a new striker in January with Juventus pair of Mario Mandzukic and Paolo Dybala believed to be top on the shopping list of the Red Devils but United fans want no other than a 19-year-old Red Bull Salzburg striker who had another fantastic night on Wednesday.
Norwegian star Erling Haaland is having an incredible season both domestically and in Europe as he netted another brace in Salzburg’s 3-2 home loss to Napoli to take his season tally to 20 goals in just 13 appearances.
Against Carlo Ancelotti’s side, Erling Braut Haaland became the first player to score 6 goals in his first 3 Champions League appearances and only the second teenager in Champions League history to score in each of his first three appearances after Karim Benzema.
Manchester United fans have now taken to Twitter to call on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to prioritize the signing of the whizkid who has also notched five league assists – rather than splash the cash on Mandzukic.
@ManUtd please do not sign manzukic. Haaland is the player United should go for. He's young, energetic and beastly. Pay $10 Mill more than they ask and buy him.

Tbh haaland would be perfect for United. He allready has worked with Solskjær before and United needs another striker. Young and hungry striker just what they need atm pic.twitter.com/xWyp246tHL

Haaland looks the real deal. Looks like he'd suit the Premier League. Looks like he'd suit United's style. Speaks good English. Has played under Solskjaer. When you factor all that in it's inevitable they'll sign 33 year old Mario Mandzukic on 150k a week instead.

Would be happy if United pull off deals for Maddison, Sancho and Haaland in the next two windows. Realistic targets and would address key areas. Need to finish this season with a sense of direction though

Calling it now — Haaland to Manchester United in the summer.

It's upsetting that we have so many talented young players but not enough quality older players to guide them. On top of that there are so many young players I'd love United to sign. Haaland is obvs one of them.

I have No doubt United will sign Haaland and Maddison next summer!

Try and sign haaland. The guy is a complete striker. Both with the head and leg. The interesting thing is that he is and can adapt to united playing style

Håland is needed at United tbfh. Powerful centre forward that can score.
