Manchester United are reportedly leading the chase for Norwegian forward Erling Braut Haaland.

A report from Dagbladet claims that the forward is more likely to join the Red Devils due to playing under United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back in Norway.

Haaland and Solskjaer were together at Molde, before making the move to Red Bull Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has reportedly made a proposal to sign the player, but it is not yet known whether this is to United themselves or to Salzburg.

Chelsea have reportedly been linked with a move for Haaland, with the club scouting the striker, according to the Mail.
