'You know my answer': Erling Braut Haaland responds to Real Madrid transfer speculation
- The RB Salzburg striker has scored 26 goals in 18 outings this term.
- He's been linked with Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United and other European giants lately.
- The 19-year-old refuses to comment on a potential exit from Salzburg.
Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland scored his fifth hat-trick of the 2019-2020 season on Sunday as the Austrian champions beat Wolfsberg 3-0 away in the league. Speaking to Dagbladet after the game, the 19-year-old was asked about a potential exit from Salzburg: "Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid: what do you think about playing at any of them?"
To which the Norway international replied: "You know my answer. No comment."
Haaland emerged on Los Blancos' radar in October. The 19-year-old attracted almost every major European club's attention with his incredible goalscoring performance in both Austrian Bundesliga and the Champions League.
Erling's 26 goals of the current campaign include 7 strikes in 4 Champions League outings - the new record for the most goals scored by a teenager in a single CL season.
Instead of moving to one of the European top clubs interested in him, the Norwegian could end up joining another club of the Red Bull company - RB Leipzig. Transfermarkt value the striker at 30 million euros but Salzburg are expected to ask above 60 million euros.
Do you think we need Haaland?
