3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
Erling Haaland continues to do what he knows best: score goals. With the goal scored last Wednesday, the Salzburg striker became the first teenager to be part of a very narrow group of which even Lionel Messi take part. Scoring his goal in the 4-1 win against Gent, the 19-year-old Norwegian continues the fantastic series in the group stage games so far. There are five games always scoring. Ahead of him only a super Lewandowski (10).
Being among the top scorers in the Champions League group stage is not for everyone. Even more when you're 19 and don't play at one of Europe's biggest clubs. But Erling Haaland is one of those guys. The group stage started in style with a hat-trick against Gent, followed by goals against Liverpool, Napoli twice (2 plus 1) and again against Gent. An achievement that only Del Piero, Rebrov, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and Lewandowski have achieved so far. The difference is that Haaland is only 19 years old.

Haaland's good performances do not go pass away from the big European clubs. Manchester United's interest seems to be the most assumed. The English giant is not going through the best moment and the arrival of a young scorer can help Red Devils solve the lack of goals. Remember that the club has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a coach and would say no to the possibility of counting with his compatriot.
