Erling Haaland visited both RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday amid growing rumours he will leave Red Bull Salzburg in the January transfer window, Sky in Germany understands.
The 19-year-old, who has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Liverpool, started his day at Leipzig before flying to Dortmund, who are looking to sign a striker due to Paco Alcacer’s injury problems, but a switch to Salzburg’s affiliate club Leipzig appears the most likely option.
Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann, a known admirer of Haaland, sees him as a perfect fit in the youngest squad in the Bundesliga, and the player could be attracted by playing alongside other emerging talents like Timo Werner.
Leipzig are hoping to convince father and son that the player’s development is best suited to working with Nagelsmann and RB’s head of sport Ralf Rangnick before he makes the move to one of Europe’s elite clubs.
