Erling Braut Haaland ‘snubs Manchester United for Juventus’

Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland has reportedly snubbed a move to Manchester United as he closes in on a switch to Juventus.
The 19-year-old, who has scored 28 goals in 22 appearances at club level this season, has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford ahead of the January transfer window.

The Red Devils were thought to be in the driving seat for the Norway international, but according to Corriere dello Sport, Juve have won the race for the teenager.

The report claims that Haaland is on the verge of signing a five-year contract with the Old Lady in what would be a huge blow to United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Haaland’s current deal with Salzburg will run until the summer of 2023, although the Austrian club are allegedly open to a January sale having accepted that they will struggle to keep hold of the youngster.

Juve also beat United to the signature of Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt over the summer.
