But now, according to Norwegian broadcast TV2, Juventus have muscled into the race for Haaland and put forward a formal offer.
The Italian champions have made a bid of £4.5m for the Norway Under-19 international and they are confident it will be accepted.
Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici is currently away working on a deal for Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, it is understood one of his backroom team has flown to Norway to broker a deal with Molde this week.
Should Haaland move to Juventus it is reported that he will be loaned out for his first season at the club.
