Erling Haaland Dortmund

Manchester United were heavily linked with Erling Haaland in the winter but the Norwegian striker opted to move to Borussia Dortmund instead.

If reports (ESPN) in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are still interested in luring the Bundesliga star and are ready to battle Real Madrid to hire his services.

The question is, how Man United could line up with the £130,000-a-week striker (The Mail) if they do end up getting his signing done?

At Old Trafford, Solskjaer does slack quality and depth in his strike-force especially after letting go Romelu Lukaku, who has not been adequately replaced as yet.

French international Anthony Martial has mainly played in the No. 9 role for the Red Devils this term but the former Monaco man is naturally a winger. Similarly, Rashford is not an out and out striker as well.

Odion Ighalo is a natural forward but the veteran was lured on loan and should only be considered as a short term fix.

Haaland has been world class in the current campaign. He scored 16 goals in 14 league appearances for Salzburg before moving to Germany. In 8 league games under the management of Lucien Favre so far, the teenage sensation has already netted 9 goals for Dortmund.

In just 5 Champions League starts, he netted no fewer than 10 goals, 8 for Salzburg and 2 for Dortmund.

Therefore, if Man United do splash the cash to finally bring him to Old Trafford, then the 19-year-old should start as the main center forward up front.

Here is how Manchester United could line up with Erling Haaland:
