transfer battle

The 17-year-old son of Alf Inge Haaland has been watched by United scouts following some impressive goal scoring feats in Norway

Juventus are trying to beat Manchester United to the signing of teen star Erling Braut Haaland.

The 17-year-old is already playing in the first team for Norwegian side Molde and he is being tipped as a star of the future.



The striker, who is the son of former Leeds United and Manchester City star Alf-Inge Haaland, is regularly being scouted by Europe’s top clubs and interest in him is high.

Manchester United have so far been leading the race for the teenager, who is considering his options this summer.

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.
