About a Mino Raiola's player...
Born in Leeds, Erling Haaland is the son of Alf-Inge Håland, a former professional footballer who played for Leeds United when he was born, making him eligible for England.
His cousin Albert Tjåland is also a footballer. He grew up in the youth sector of Bryne, with which he made his professional debut, before moving to Molde in 2017, where he played for two seasons. In 2019 he was bought by Salzburg, with whom he won an Austrian championship and an Austrian Cup in 2018-2019.
In 2020 he moved to Borussia Dortmund, with whom he won a German Cup in 2020-2021 and established himself as one of the youngest and at the same time prolific forwards in circulation. Individually he was awarded the German League Player of the Year award in 2020-21 and the UEFA Champions League top scorer in 2020-21, as well as being included in the UEFA Champions League team of the season in 2020- 2021.
Striker with good technique, speed and physical strength. He has a good nose for goal, is left-footed, and his 194 cm allows him to be a good header. The power of his shots makes them insidious and in addition he is also good at getting into the spaces left by the opposing defenses.
He also knows how to distinguish himself as a finisher because of his good vision of the game. Now Haaland will almost certainly be a new player from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, as confirmed by all the British media and newspapers.
Haaland would have preferred City and the Spanish manager's project to Barcelona, Real Madrid or PSG. Manchester City will pay 75 million euros to Borussia Dortmund, the German club where the Norwegian is playing. Haaland will receive a staggering 29 million net annual salary!
Haaland will have to solve the problem of goals from a club that has many playmakers but no real central striker. In this respect, there is a famous precedent that Raiola cannot have overlooked. Only in 2009 did Guardiola play without the false nueve with Zlatan Ibrahimovic next to Lionel Messi, but as everyone knows, it didn't go very well.
