Solskjaer was keen to sign Haaland for United a year ago but the striker opted to join Borussia Dortmund instead.
Speaking last week, Solskjaer praised Haaland for the impact he’s made at Dortmund and backed the 20-year-old to comfortably beat his own record of being the highest-scoring Norwegian player in Champions League history.
‘The boy has had a great start to his career,’ said Solskjaer.
‘It was really good to work with him, to see the potential in him, and some part of me feels proud of having a little bit of an input in such a rise.’
But Raiola, who represents Haaland, has urged Solskjaer to focus on the players he has at United.
‘Haaland is like [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic when he was 20,’ Raiola told Tuttosport.
‘Solskjaer is a good guy but he was wrong when he said that Erling is like [Romelu] Lukaku.
‘It would be better if Solskjaer thought about finding a way to make Pogba play like a champion, instead of talking about Haaland.’
‘I can’t talk about Haaland’s release clause,’ said Raiola.
‘This [Madrid’s interest] is not new to me.
‘But he is very happy with Borussia Dortmund. Erling wants to win the Champions League. When he leaves the club, it will be for his ambition and not for money.’
