Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed for the first time that he told Manchester United to buy Erling Haaland for just £4million.
Solskjaer was manager of 51-goal Manchester City scorer Haaland during his time in charge of Molde, before he went on to sign for RB Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.
But he could have been at United if they had listened to their former striker Solskjaer just before he became manager at Old Trafford himself in 2018.

Solskjaer said: “I called United about six months before I took over and told them that I’d got this striker that we had but they didn’t listen.
“I asked for £4million for Haaland but they didn’t sign him.”
He ended up going to City for £50million and is now rated as the world’s most valuable striker at £200million.
