Manchester United fans have urged the club to snap up Erling Haaland in the summer transfer window following his latest heroics for Borussia Dortmund.
Haaland scored twice and set one up in the first half of the first leg of Dortmund’s Champions League last 16 tie against Sevilla.
The German side went behind early on at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to a goal from Fernandez Saez but Haaland provided the assist for Mahmoud Dahoud to equaliser in the 19th minute.
Haaland then bagged a brace himself – one set up by Jadon Sancho – scoring in the 27th and 43rd minutes to put Dortmund 3-1 up at the interval.
The prolific 20-year-old Norway international has emerged as one of the hottest properties in European football.
Following Haaland’s latest exploits, United supporters took to social media to make their feelings clear.
One optimistic user said on Twitter: “We need to go get that Erling Haaland deal done tonight.”
Another tweeted: “He’s gotta be top priority for #MUFC in the summer? Signing him would take us from the top 4 to instantly challenging for the title again. Would love it!”
Meanwhile, a third fan added: “Ole Gunnar promise him the world… Please.”
Haaland has previously played under fellow Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Molde.
And United boss Solskjaer has admitted he is still “following” the youngster’s career closely.
“Erling will have a fantastic career,” Solskjaer told Norwegian outlet 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.
“He will definitely have a great career for both Norway and his club.
“He is doing incredibly well for Dortmund, so we’ll see where he ends up.
