Manchester United are the bookmakers’ favourites to sign Erling Braut Haaland and James Maddison in the January transfer window.

United sealed a place in the last 32 of the Europa League with a 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade at Old Trafford on Thursday, but are still struggling in 10th place in the Premier League.

The Red Devils have been widely expected to strengthen in January, with a striker a priority – although boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted it will be difficult to get the players they want in January.

However, two players who look set to switch to United – according to the bookies, at least – are Red Bull Salzburg striker Haaland and Leicester City attacking midfielder Maddison .

Maddison has been long been linked with United, while Haaland has impressed with his goalscoring exploits in the Champions League and the Austrian Bundesliga.

Erling Braut Haaland has broken Champions League records this season

Sky Bet makes United favourites to sign both players when the transfer window reopens in the new year, offering odds of 2/1 on Haaland to join United and 9/2 for Maddison to make the switch to Old Trafford.

Haaland, 19, is the Champions League’s top scorer so far this season with seven goals in Salzburg’s opening four games, and is the subject of interest from Liverpool, Arsenal , Real Madrid and Barcelona as well as United.

He scored a penalty in Salzburg’s 1-1 draw away to Napoli on Tuesday – while his brace against the same opponents in the previous match wrote his name into the record books.

That double meant the Norwegian became the first player to score six goals in his first three Champions League appearances.

He also became the second teenager to score in each of his first three Champions League appearances, after Karim Benzema, and the first teenager to score six goals in a Champions League season.

Haaland scored a hat-trick in Salzburg’s 6-2 win over Genk in their opening Champions League game, followed by one in their 4-3 defeat to Liverpool .

According to stats website Transfermarkt , Haaland’s market value has shot up to £27m since from around £5million at the start of the season. He is contracted to Salzburg until 2023.

Maddison is also contracted until 2023 and is valued at around £40m – although with Leicester currently third in the Premier League and gunning for a Champions League place they are likely to play hardball in order to avoid selling to a rival.
