Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton are battling for Norwegian keeper Kjetil Haug, a teen star dubbed the new Peter Schmeichel.

United gave a trial to Sarpsborg 08 youngster Haug, who is just fifteen, last month.

Haug has also been linked with Manchester City, Everton and Arsenal – and the Gunners are set to give him time to impress at the Emirates in his own trial.Despite being a United fan, Haug is open to joining any of the English giants.The teen sensation said: “I talked a lot with Anders Lindegaard. He gave me lots of good advice about a possible transfer.

“We also had lunch with several other United players and David Moyes. Moyes sat down next to me. It was very fun.

“It was very special to be on trial at United since I am supporter myself.”United is in that respect very well received when I decide on my future. But that they are closest to my heart does not mean anything.”The most important thing is the sporting challenge and the entire package that the club offer me.”

On being compared to Schmeichel, Haug added: “It’s quite special to be compared to one of the best keepers in the world ever.

“But it is of course great and I am really honoured. He is one of my biggest role models.

“I’ll be careful not to say too much about the similarities between us, but there are some. I have a physical style to my play as did Schmeichel.

“But there is obviously a long way to go before I get on his level.”
