Ashton United make a loan bid for Haaland
An offer for Erling Haaland's services on a 28-day loan has been made to Manchester City.
The 22-year-old transferred from Borussia Dortmund to City in the summer and has adapted very well to life in England.
With City presently sitting in second place in the Premier League, Haaland has already scored an incredible 23 goals across all competitions.
The World Cup starts in six days, and club football is presently suspended. Haaland will remain out of commission for a month because Norway was unable to qualify for the competition.
United's website published an official statement, but it has now failed as a result of a spike in traffic.
Manager Michael Clegg explained: "It just makes sense. City aren’t playing, and we want to help by keeping Erling fit, it makes more sense than him playing golf for six weeks."
"We think he will be a great fit for us, and would slot in with our squad dynamic really well."
With only 23 goals scored so far this season, Ashton United, who competes in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, is currently ranked 11th.
It's safe to conclude that if he made the transition, Haaland would have a significant impact at Hurst Cross Stadium.
