Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects Erling Haaland to have a great career and is 'following' the forward
The Manchester United boss said earlier on Friday that he wanted more from his attackers, which makes links with Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland all the more obvious. The pair worked together at Molde, but have since gone their separate ways. The Norwegian media are keen for them to link up once again

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted to taking a keen interest in the progress of Erling Haaland, and said he expects his fellow Norwegian to have a great career when asked if he was interested in signing the forward.
Haaland spent the best part of two years working under Solskjaer at Molde, before taking his career to new heights with Red Bull Salzburg and now Borussia Dortmund.
The 20-year-old has only been at Dortmund for a little over a year, but is already being linked with a move away.
Given how high his stock is at present, it’s no surprise that United are being linked with bids for the forward.
Solskjaer’s relationship with the forward makes for obvious links, but the Red Devils boss was giving nothing away when asked if United are ready to battle the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid for the Norway international.
"Erling will have a fantastic career,” Solskjaer told VG. “I’m following Erling. I've always said that.
"Was it 18 months we had together or something? Almost two years, maybe. A wonderful time."
