Manchester United legend Roy Keane has called for his former club to sign Borussia Dortmund striker ErlingHaaland. Roy Keane told TV2 that Manchester United need a striker like ErlingHaaland, who has been a goalscoring machine for Borussia Dortmund this season. ErlingHaaland netted twice in the 4-0 thrashing of Schalke 04 in the Ruhr Derby in the German Bundesliga thereby taking his tally to 17 goals in 17 league games. While ErlingHaaland has been amongst the goals for Borussia Dortmund on a consistent basis, Manchester United strikers have not able to score regularly. The Manchester United duo of EdinsonCavani and Anthony Martial are the two majorstrikers this season but they have both struggled to score regularly. EdinsonCavani joined Manchester United on a free transfer at the start of the season at the end of his PSG contract, while Anthony Martial has been at the club for several years.
Ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane was asked on TV2 about the player that he wants his former club to sign and his response was straightforward. According to him, he would like Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to try to sign ErlingHaaland once again. ErlingHaaland snubbed Manchester United and other interested clubs in favour of Borussia Dortmund at the start of last year. He also mentioned PSG attacker KylianMbappe before revealing that the only one he would like to see Manchester United sign is ErlingHaaland. Roy Keane believes that it would be an advantage for Manchester United since manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had worked with him before. ErlingHaaland played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Molde in the Norwegian top flight. Roy Keane was also asked about his tackle on ErlingHaaland’s father, Alfe-IngHaaland many years ago in the Premier League. According to the Ex-Manchester United skipper Roy Keane, he wanted Alfe-IngHaaland to feel pain and that there’s a difference between feeling pain and hurting someone. Manchester United legend Roy Keane was fined and banned for that challenge after he was found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.
