Erling Haaland has vowed to continue his absurd goal-scoring run after being officially introduced as Manchester City’s new number 9.
Following Gabriel Jesus’ transfer to Arsenal, Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City,
has talked about the significance of his jersey number.
Haaland, who turns 22 later this month, will wear the same jersey number as he did at Borussia Dortmund following Gabriel Jesus’ £45 million transfer to Arsenal at the beginning of the week.
Erling Haaland has pledged to keep banging goals in after scoring 86 goals in 89 games over two and a half seasons in the Bundesliga.
Haaland may only have to pay £51 million in transfer costs since City matched his buy-out clause at Dortmund.
Erling Haaland, who has played 21 times for Norway and scored 20 goals,
expressed his happiness at getting the number 9. I’m eager to continue that at City because over the previous two years,
it has played a role in both my club and national team experiences.
To accomplish it for one of the best teams in the world is a dream come true for every striker who aspires to wear that shirt. I can’t wait to start.
Haaland landed in Manchester yesterday after spending time on holiday in Marbella.
Before joining the rest of Pep Guardiola’s team as they prepare for the club’s journey to the United States later this month, he will have his fitness assessed by City’s training staff. On July 20,
City will play Club America of Mexico in Houston, and then three days later,
City will play Bayern Munich in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Haaland will be revealed with the other summer signings for City,
including Argentine striker Julian Alvarez, Leeds and England midfielder Kalvin Phillips,
and German goalkeeper Stefan Ortega, at a grandiose ceremony at the Etihad.
Haaland remarked, “I hope the fans are as thrilled as we are. It will be amazing to enter the stadium with the other men for the first time and have the opportunity to interact with our supporters.
Alvarez has further voiced his eagerness to join City in the meantime.
The 22-year-old is certain that after joining from River Plate in a £14.1 million transfer, he will quickly adjust to life in the Premier League.
