Peter Schmeichel: Former Man Utd keeper is Kjetil Haug's idol

Haug spent time with the Premier League champions last month, and he has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Everton and Manchester City.

The 15-year-old's style has prompted comparisons with former United keeper Schmeichel, but the Red Devils fan is unsure about whether he will move to Old Trafford.

"It's quite special to be compared to one of the best keepers in the world ever," Haug told TV2 in Norway. "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."

Regarding his recent training spell at United, Haug said: "I talked a lot with Anders Lindegaard. He gave me lots of good advice about a possible transfer. It was very interesting and helpful.

"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."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
