Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal may have to be patient in their efforts to lure Red Bull Salzburg's prolific young striker Erling Braut Haaland.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus have all launched plans to sign the 19-year old, whose valuation has rocketed beyond £80m, with 23 goals in 17 appearances to his name so far this season.

However Sky Sports News has learned that the 6ft 4in Norwegian striker is also considering a proposal to stay affiliated to the RB group and join Bundesliga outfit RB 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 talent like Timo Werner.
