EPL: Solskjaer explains why Manchester United did not sign Haaland.

Former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he told the club in 2018 that he wanted to buy Erling Haaland for £4 million, but they refused.

This occurred six months before Solskjaer took over at Manchester United.

Instead, he went to Red Bull Salzburg and then Borussia Dortmund before joining Manchester City for £51.2 million last year.

The 22-year-old has now scored 51 times as City close in on a Treble.

“I called United about six months before I took over and told them that I’d got this striker that we had but they didn’t listen.

“I asked for £4million for Haaland but they didn’t sign him,” Solskjaer said according to the UK Sun.
