Manchester United have been linked with a move for the young Red Bull Salzburg striker.

The Red Devils are looking to bolster their squad in the upcoming January transfer window. Red Bull Salzburg’s Erling Haaland was considered a potential arrival in January. According to reports, the player is close to making a move to Italian behemoths Juventus.

Erling Haaland is a transfer target for many clubs. However, some reports even suggest the player has agreed on personal terms with the defending Serie A champions.

Richarlison on United’s list of Haaland alternatives

This means United may have to pursue other options. Everton forward and Brazilian international Richarlison is reportedly there in Manchester United’s list of alternatives for Haaland. The 22-year-old would be a quality addition to the Manchester United squad.

However, Everton will not be willing to let the player go. The recent arrival of Carlo Ancelotti may make it even tougher for the Red Devils to lure the attacker.

The Brazilian international is regular for Everton. The striker has already made 19 appearances for Everton in the Premier League this season. He also has six Premier League goals to his name so far. The player recently penned a new contract deal with Everton.

Manchester United also have Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho in the list of alternatives. Many English Premier League clubs have reportedly shown interest in signing the youngster. Chelsea are currently the favorites to sign the player.

It will be a breakthrough deal for United if they sign him. The young player could certainly improve Manchester United.

Erling Haaland very impressive for Red Bull Salzburg

He has been very impressive Red Bull Salzburg, racking up goals. The player has already amassed 28 goals. Eight of those came in the UEFA Champions League. He has so far scored 16 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga this season. The player also has 7 assists to his name so far this season.

Will he join Manchester United? or will Juventus end up signing the youngster? Or will any other top European club be the destination for the striker? It’s simply unpredictable at the moment.
