Jose Mourinho in contention to replace Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham boss

Exclusive: Solskjaer sends most trusted scout to watch Erling Haaland

Manchester United can sign Erling Haaland in January on one condition

Manchester United are set to make an approach to sign Erling Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg in the January transfer window, according to reports.

Solskjaer was responsible for handing Haaland with his debut at former club Molde and it remains to be seen whether they are reunited at Old Trafford at the turn of the year.

The file claims that Pochettino "complained without slay" to Spurs referring to the want to employ tall in the summertime.

After surprising the masses in making it all the way to the Champions League final last season, Spurs have since endured a nightmare start to the new campaign. It is believed a fee of around €40m has been pencilled into the Juventus summer budget for youngster's signing.

That said, Pochettino guided them to the Champions League final in white-knuckle fashion, and they've become a top-four mainstay since his appointment in May 2014, finishing as high as second in 2017.

Reporter Fabrizio Romano says Jose Mourinho is being considered for the job, and that the mercurial Portuguese would be open to the opportunity.

Fernandes has been a target for United for some time, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeing the Portugal worldwide as a long-term replacement for the now departed Ander Herrera.

There have been rumours that Pochettino has lost the dressing room, with a number of key players such as Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen looking to leave the club when their contracts end next summer, and Levy is said to be losing faith in the Argentinean. The 59-year-old Spaniard is now plying his trade at Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, but would be open to a move back to England.

It was news that sent shockwaves across the footballing world on Tuesday. But Salzburg have slapped an £85 million price tag on the 19-year-old which has narrowed the field down considerably. He is especially an admirer of the profile of the squad, including England captain Harry Kane and his worldwide team-mate Eric Dier who started just two league games this season under Pochettino.
