United has a direct thread with Haaland

Solskjaer, United's Norwegian coach and compatriot of the Dortmund forward, said: "I'm in contact with Erling, we'll see what life brings him."

There isn't a team in the world that doesn't love Haaland. However, not many can afford it. The auction that is going to start in the summer has several candidates and Manchester United wants to be one of the protagonists. At least he has an advantage over his competitors: Ole Günnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian coach, compatriot of the Borussia Dortmund forward, knows Haaland well and has not hesitated to comment on it to the media: "I am in contact with Erling, it is nice to see the player he has become. He is a Dortmund footballer. and I wish him the best, we'll see what life brings him ahead ".

In addition, the Manchester United coach warned that he cannot speak too much, beyond acknowledging the personal treatment they have: "You know that I cannot speak much about Erling, it would be disrespectful to say more than I say. Who would not be interested to sign him a year ago? But the signings we have made have been good, everyone has contributed. I am very happy with our model ".

The next step, however, is to deal with Mino Raiola, his representative. Asked weeks ago about Haaland's future, Raiola said: "There are only a maximum of 10 clubs that Haaland can allow to give him a sufficient platform after being at Dortmund ... and four of those clubs are in England." The festival begins.

In the preview of the duel against Real Sociedad at Old Traffor in the Europa League (0-4 in the first leg), the Manchester United coach referred to the problems faced by Spanish teams, ensuring that "the football has evolved ", and warned that taking on a rival who has a player like David Silva forces you to be focused throughout the game.

"Football has evolved and developed. When I played there was a big difference between tactics and physics. The more fit you were, the better you did. Now the best teams have to be physically, tactically and mentally perfect. For this match we know that We have to defend well and be focused, "said Solskjaer at a press conference.

"In Turin we find spaces behind our backs and tomorrow we will also look for a way to hurt them. Real technically is a good team, so we will have to be vigilant because if you have a team in front that plays for example David Silva forces you to be focused for a hundred minutes, "he explained.

Interest in Mata

For this Thursday's match, Solskjaer can give minutes to Juan Mata, who already returned to the team last weekend against Newcastle United after a time away from the pitch. Furthermore, Solskjaer spoke about possible interest in him from Italian teams. "I am not surprised that there are teams interested in him. Firstly, he is a great footballer and secondly, he is a great human being. I am sure that Juan has been able to speak with other clubs if he wanted to. We have good communication," said the coach. Norwegian, who confirmed that it will continue without players such as Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek, since "they still have not trained enough" .
