Media speculation regarding the acquisition of a young striker continues to excite Manchester United supporters.

Although Manchester United are already blessed with the services of some fine young strikers in the shape of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, it appears the club are desperate to add another to the list.

The quantity of column inches relating to Manchester United signing the 19-year-old Norwegian striker Erling Haaland continues to grow.

Today, if The Sun has its facts correct, Manchester United supporters could get the best start to the New Year possible with our quoted source implying that his club, Red Bull Salzburg, have confirmed that Manchester United are in pole position to sign the striker with it also being mentioned the lure of a £200,000 a week contract could prove to be the tipping point.

Earlier, I spoke about the clubs’ apparent desperation to add Haaland to the squad and when the speculation first emerged, we used our poll facility to gauge reaction to the potential signing.

The results showed that 89% of those who voted would welcome the player to Old Trafford with just 5% objecting and a further 6% unable to make their minds up.

With January fast approaching could this be a deal that Manchester United pursue to completion?

Stay tuned and we’ll endeavour to keep abreast of the situation.

  • Being a United supporter for the last 50years of my self I find the new generation of United supporters a fickle bunch
    Every time United loose a match they want the manager fired
    If you lack quality players then why blame the manager
    What United need are 2 strong midfielders in the mold of Kean and Inch and there are non around.
    We have plenty of young talent but they should be send out on loan where they can get regular game time and can improve
    A good example is Mount of Chelsea
    It took Liverpool 30 years to be where they are now .
    So please United fans give Ole a chance and in the next year or so United will be back to their best

    • Yes. Totally agreed. We need to throw Lindeloft, Lingard, Shaw. Waste of time. Add Nigez, Grealish and zlatan and a stronger replacement for Lindeloft. Martial to start 2nd half only. Brandon, Greenwood, Mata, Matic must start everytime.
      I’m not sure why they still can’t see this fact. We seriously lack skills to attack. Very frustrating. If Liverpool took 30 years…do we have to do the same. Come on guys. Get real.

    • Its leadership really Keane and ince were defo that Scholes too that kind of player also striker who regular with goals doesnt have be a superstar trying force martial in that position I think he best on left side feed off striker. younger players play better under this Neville Beckham co had cantona Keane yorke Cole so many more to learn from now been through into team with too high expectations in my opinion

      • Get the serious transfer business done in January. We defo need a striker. A proper number 9. Is Martial good enough? Yes, but as an impact player. If we can get the balance from back to front right, and we are nearly there, I firmly believe we can be a force to be reckoned with.
        Is Ole the right man for the job? I really do not know

    • Thank u for ur comment anytime a particular player didn’t play well fans will start complaining,they hail u when u play well then insult u when u play bad football need patient to get things right I rest my case tnx.

  • Man u really need a sharper striker than martial and our midfield is also needed and martial should go to his former position at is wide.

  • Get a more committed defender than Maguire…get a committed creative midfielder…send Martial to the wings and we’re good to go.

  • Comment#Manutd needs two attacking midfielders & one striker then go for 4:4:2 in order to accommodate our clinical striker that is #Martial.

  • for the last 15yrs, have been supporting united. if we can undestand our problem, then lets be patient at this time n give ole enough time to change things.

  • i do not think that ole is doing a good job yes he is beating the top teams but then go on to lose against much smaller teams is a concern and we are not talking about a game but 7 or 8 games already we should have won but lost or got a point the club should stick with ole until the end of the season then decide but in junuary he needs to buy or 3 quality players

  • I for one think ole nids some time but he also nids to get more creative midfielders and a gud striker coz if he is sucked we shall then spend another season trying to put things right with the new coach and wasting alot of money to buy the players he wants

  • You can not play martial an lingard together. They both suck so we are automatically at a disadvantage playing against defensive minded teams. They need to b sold and replaced. Lingard last scored, what 18 months ago? Martial is more interested in throwing his arms up in the air and sulking..when he stays onside.

  • There is a problem within United when it comes to lower table teams that much is now evident, We need to strengthen the midfield to (A) offer more protection to the defence and (B) a player who can open up tight defences. Both Martial and Rashford like to run in behind, this is not always possible against these teams but I haven’t seen enough of Haaland to be sure he would make a difference. There is loads of speculation about who United will be signing or trying to sign in January from Haaland to Madison, Can to Grealish or Rice but I think we should just wait and see. I would not be surprised if United signed nobody.

  • I love OGS but I feel he needs to stop playing to the Glazer’s and woodward gallery. His press conferences atimes infuriates me when he goes around saying he’s okay with the players he’s got. For crying out loud, our midfield is mid-table quality at best, once Mc Tominay gets injured, were finished. LINGARD needs to be sold ASAP, no more excuses of family issues. Solksjaer needs at least 3 new additions this January; two midfielders and an attacker but judging on the disappointing previous summer transfer, I won’t be surprised we end up getting just one.

  • United don’t need new coach they need to change certain players Martial must go Ashley up and down but can go and a few more we need quality and more creative players and to comment on Liverpool definitely we cant wait 30yrs for a team to come right theres money to spend spend it get on quality players to put us were we belong Woodward seems also to be problem seems his talking but not doing the dealing to get what club needs his all talks
