Manchester United scouted RB Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland during the Champions League game against Liverpool.

According to Sky Sports, United head scout Marcel Bout was at the Group E match between Salzburg and Liverpool at Stadion Salzburg on Tuesday evening.

The report has claimed that Bout, as well as scouts from a number of other clubs in Europe, were at the match to watch Haaland in action.

Salzburg lost the match 2-0 and have finished third in the group, meaning they will drop to the Europa League at the round-of-32 stage.

The 19-year-old striker is enjoying a remarkable campaign at Salzburg and has been linked with other clubs in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Haaland, as are Italian giants Juventus.


The Norway international striker, son of former Leeds and Manchester City midfielder Alf-Inge Haaland, has scored eight goals and provided one assist in six Champions League matches for Salzburg this season.

The teenager has also scored 16 goals in 14 games in the Austrian Bundesliga this term.

With United having not replaced Romelu Lukaku when the Belgium international striker left for Inter Milan in the summer transfer window, Haaland would be a good signing for the Red Devils, not just for now, but in the long run as well.
