Manchester United may be flying high in the Premier League right now. But that hasn’t stopped the Red Devils from being linked with Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho. Express Sport will now take a look at the latest news and gossip coming out of Old Trafford with the transfer window now open.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly shifted his focus to signing Haaland instead of Sancho.
The Norway international rejected a move to Old Trafford 12 months ago, choosing to leave Red Bull Salzburg for Borussia Dortmund instead.
But United still want him nonetheless, The Mirror claim.
The 20-year-old has scored 10 Bundesliga goals from eight matches so far this term.
And with Anthony Martial scoring just twice in the Premier League this term, it’s easy to see why Solskjaer is hunting for an upgrade.

Woodward view on Sancho
United spent the whole summer hoping to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, only to miss out on a deal for the England international.
And The Mirror claim they feel they’ve dodged a bullet.
The 20-year-old is yet to score a single Bundesliga goal this term and has only clocked up three assists from 11 games.
United’s attack is shining at the current moment in time and Sancho hasn’t been missed.
The Red Devils signed Edinson Cavani instead of Sancho in the summer and the Uruguay international, so far, has been more of a hit than miss.
Pellistri praises Solskjaer
Facundo Pellistri has praised Solskjaer for helping him adjust to life in England.
“Obviously, it’s very nice to hear that the manager speaks about you [as Solskjaer has during his press conferences] and I am in contact with him all the time,” he told their official website.
“He is giving me advice and asking me how I am doing and how I am feeling. That, for me, is very important and I am really thankful to him.
“For me, it’s going to be a dream to have a chance in the first team and to fight for a place. And that Manchester United are going to the top. That is my biggest dream.
“Yes, that it what I am working on [getting a debut] and, hopefully, I am going to have it.”
