Like Kylian Mbappé, Erling Haaland has animated the transfer window in recent months. Rumors sent him to the biggest clubs in Europe before he eventually ended up signing for Manchester City. A choice far from having been taken at the last minute.
Manchester City’s solid collective has now found its star, Erling Braut Haaland. The Norwegian joined the Citizens this summer from Dortmund, giving even more weight to the Mancunian attack. By signing the 22-year-old prodigy, Manchester City made a famous move on the European scene. With Kylian Mbappé, Erling Haaland is the star player announced for the next ten years. In view of the transfer window information for the last 12 months, this transfer did not seem written in advance, especially since the suitors were very numerous.
City, the heart club of the young Haaland child
We notably mentioned PSG, where he made an ideal replacement for Kylian Mbappé in the event of the latter’s departure from Real Madrid. The Madrid club was also a possible destination if Kylian Mbappé did not come. FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich have also been considered. Finally, City doubled all these beautiful people and it is not a surprise. Manchester City, where the young man’s father played, is simply the team he supported as a child. And, in addition, Pep Guardiola is the coach of his dreams.
🗣 “It’s about how you’re feeling if you want a new job, how you feel. Thinking about you in this new job.”

” I grew up in Norway and it’s the Premier League no matter what. Everyone watches the Premier League and has a club, so it’s the Premier League all the time. I can’t wait to feel the atmosphere and the rivalry between us and them, between the supporters. I’ve been to many games in England and it’s something I’ve always really enjoyed. There is also the atmosphere of the match, the rhythm. It’s going to be tough and that’s what makes the charm of the Premier League. It’s a beautiful and tough competition, that’s why it’s the most popular championship in the world “, he notably entrusted to Sky Sports.
