Man Utd joined by Juventus in race for Salzburg star Erling Haaland with Italian side making him ‘No 1 transfer target’ – The Sun

JUVENTUS have reportedly joined Manchester United in the race to sign whizkid Erling Haaland.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims the RB Salzburg star, 19, could be in line to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala in a fearsome attack next season.

Haaland joined Sazlburg in January and has scored an incredible 21 goals in just 14 matches this season.

That’s put him on the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Real Madrid monitoring his progress.

Barcelona have identified Haaland as a potential replacement for ageing forward Luis Suarez.

While United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer worked with the teenager at Molde and remains a big fan.

However, Haaland could instead be heading to Juventus next year after catching the eye of Maurizio Sarri.

The former Chelsea boss, who won last season’s Europa League, has ditched his 4-3-3 system for a new 4-diamond-2 shape.

Gonzalo Higuain has struggled for consistency upon his return to Turin after playing on loan under Sarri at Chelsea, scoring just three times in 11 matches.

While Mario Mandzukic hasn’t even made a single appearance under his new boss.

Haaland could jump at the chance to play alongside legendary forward Ronaldo.

And that would see Dybala reverted to his best position at the tip of the diamond.

The report goes on to add that Juventus are ready to offer £35million for Haaland.

But with Europe’s elite on his tail, the Norway international will surely go for a lot more than that.
