In today’s transfer rumours the race to sign Erling Braut Håland is starting to heat up. The Italian newspaper Tuttosport is reporting that his current club Red Bull Salzburg has slapped a €100 million price tag on the Norweigan striker. But that won’t stop any of the big clubs from getting involved.
Transfer Rumours: Erling Haaland
It’s really no surprise to see plenty of big clubs interested in Erling Haaland. The 19-year-old has started this season absolutely on fire. He’s already got 18 goals in all competitions this season, 12 in the Austrian Bundesliga, and six in three Champions League games. Håland has had the type of start to his season that will have all of the big clubs salivating.
But it’s not just the goal-scoring that has brought Håland so much attention. The 6’4″ Norwegian striker is the son of former Norwegian international and Manchester City defender Alf-Ingle Håland. And when the son of a former Premier League pro scores NINE goals in a U-20 World Cup game, it’s bound to be noticed.
His size and style of play have led to the obvious comparisons with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Van Basten. Neither of them moved as smoothly as Håland does across the pitch. Nor did they have the goalscoring record in their early Ajax days. Another reason why Håland has garnered so many transfer rumours.
The specific report in Tuttosport states that Manchester United, Juventus, and Real Madrid are all very interested in the young Norwegian. However, those are only three of the many clubs interested in Håland. A Google News search of his name can find links to Manchester City, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and others.
Håland will have another opportunity to show off for the big clubs in his Champions League trip to Napoli this week. The Norwegian is likely to start as he will be looking to add to his UCL leading goal tally. While Salzburg will need a win in Naples to keep their hopes of a knockout stage place alive.
