According to him, a sum of £ 4 million should be paid for Haaland, of which the United manager brutally refused. News About Nigeria gathered.
Solskjaer told UK Sun this happened about six months before he took charge at Old Trafford.
In the same year, Haaland moved to Red Bull Salzburg and later played for Borussia Dortmund before his £51.2 million move to United’s rivals Manchester City last year.
Solskjaer said; “I called United about six months before I took over and told them that I’d got this striker that we had but they didn’t listen.
“I asked for £4million for Haaland but they didn’t sign him”.
Meanwhile, Boxing champion Anthony Joshua has revealed that he aims to retire while he is still in good health.
The two-time heavyweight champion stated that he does not want to be nursing boxing-related injuries into old age.
In an interview with Men’s Health, Joshua said that a part of his legacy would be judged by his health.
He has been careful in the past about the injuries he sustains in the ring, taking breaks to allow himself enough time to recover.
“In boxing, people walk in the gym one way and not many walk out the same way, because of the trauma and the stuff they put their body through. I want my legacy to be, I walked out healthy.
“Imagine me at the age of 50 or 60 in a wheelchair and fragile because of the trauma I put my body through. My legacy should be when I’m old, I’m still fresh. I want people to say, ‘Oh wow, he still looks good, he still looks after himself.’ That’s a legacy,” he said.
