Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has told the club to continue to develop their own young forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford instead of trying to sign Salzburg teenager Erling Haaland.

The 19-year-old Norwegian, who has scored 28 goals in 22 matches this season, has been linked with a switch to several top European clubs including United.

But Berbatov said there was no need for United to bring another forward in.

“Haaland is good and he is still young. He’s developing and maybe he can get better,” Berbatov told Sky Sports.

“But I’ve said many times before that Martial and Rashford are, for me, the two main strikers that United need to keep.

“I played with Martial in Monaco, I know how good he can be. Now he’s in the place he can develop and become a world star.

“Everyone knows how good Rashford can be … they need to stick with these two players.

“They need to stick with these young players because they have so much talent.

“Nurture them, show them the right way and they’ll be fantastic.”
