Added to his European exploits, the towering teenager, dubbed the 'next Zlatan Ibrahimovic' has netted 22 goals and registered six assists in just 15 games across all competitions.

Naturally, Europe's elite are lining up, with scouts flocking to Red Bull Salzburg fixtures to capture a glimpse of what many expect to be the next goal-scoring machine over the next decade.

According to The Guardian, the Austrian side will be holding out for €60 million (R1 billion) in the off-season, as the player himself prefers to continue his meteoric rise at the ambitious club.

While Real, Napoli, United, Bayern Munich and Juventus are said to be the front-runners in the race to sign the Norway international - it's been claimed the player himself is favouring a switch to Old Trafford.

This after he rejected a €6m (R100m) transfer to Juventus in July 2018 as he was reluctant to hold a back-up player status or be loaned out during a crucial period of his development.

"I was obviously flattered by Juventus being interested,” he said in January. "But I thought that it was to early to go there.

"Salzburg was the club that suited me the best and they were the ones who wanted me the most.

"I also think it was very important to look at how important a part I was going to play for the club I joined."

Haaland worked closely with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for two years at his former club Molde, after the Red Devils legend signed him as a 16-year-old from a second division side.

And Corriere dello Sport reports the Red Devils is his preferred destination due to the likelihood of a first-team role under his compatriot at Old Trafford.
