Erling Haaland's father Alf Inge has dashed Manchester United's hope of signing the talented forward as he said his son has no intention of leaving Borussia Dortmund any time soon.

This award is given out every year by Italian newspaper Tuttosport to the best player under the age of 21 and was won by Atletico Madrid's Joao Felix last year.

Haaland snapped the coveted award ahead of Barcelona and Spain's Ansu Fati and Bayern Munich's Canadian left-back Alphonso Davies.

Haaland is only 20 years old, but already earned a €20m transfer from RB Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund in January.

The Norway worldwide has a better big chance conversion rate (62.5 per cent) than Robert Lewandowski (53.9 per cent) in the Bundesliga this season, though the Poland global has scored five more goals in the same amount of games (six).

"When you play well, it makes sense for big clubs to knock on your door, but these are just speculation", Alf-Inge Haaland told Sport1.

They have continued to be linked despite his move to Dortmund, with it believed he could be a primary target come next summer.

"We signed a long contract with Dortmund and BVB have a fantastic team for Erling right now". We don't want to look any further ahead.

"You never know what will happen". We haven't talked about that step yet. I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That's his goal. Erling can still achieve a great deal in Germany and make great progress.

"He is happy to be in Dortmund and to play for this club".

A stellar list of 40 names had been released in October and included Manchester United's Mason Greenwood and United States worldwide Sergino Dest after an impressive breakthrough campaign at Ajax before his move to Barcelona.
