A Norwegian model has begged Erling Haaland to come to Manchester United.
Ann Mari Olsen has asked her compatriot, Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland, to snub Manchester City’s interest and join up with her side instead. The 33-year-old posted a snap on Instagram wearing a United with Haaland's name on the back. She wrote in the caption: "Please wear red next season.." with a crossed fingers emoji accompanying the text.
Olsen is a huge United fan and often posts racy pictures of herself wearing a United top to her 154k followers. Her calls might fall on deaf ears, though, as Haaland is one of Europe’s hottest properties and United is said to be just one of a number of elite sides who hoping to sign him. Last month the Daily Mail reported that Man City had agreed terms to buy the 21-year-old.
They reported that he had given the green light to a £500,000-a-week deal – a number that would make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player. They also report that Pep Guardiola's side are set to trigger the Dortmund attacker’s £63m release clause, in what could be a five-year deal.
Olsen has previously made demands concerning her football club. In 2019, the Instagram model pleaded with fans to get behind Jesse Lingard before United’s clash with FC Astana in the Europa League.

Lingard had come under fire for his social media antics and poor performances. But Olsen asked Red Devils fans to back him. She wrote: "Lingard will captain Manchester United today against Astana.
"The guy has definitely had his challenges lately, I hate saying this about a Manchester boy, but I feel his time is up for the A team. With that said, he is still a red and deserves no abuse, today he will be the experienced player out there and I hope he motivates the young lads.
"Solskjaer has done everything correct so far in the Europa League, already qualified so we can rest the players and give the reserves a chance.
"I haven’t watched a lot of youth games lately so I honestly don’t know what I can expect from this team, but seeing youngsters getting their debut is always good.”
