In-demand Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has long been a fan of Champions League opponents Manchester City, it’s been revealed.
Haaland, 20, grew up as a City supporter — as his dad Alfie was on the books when he was born — and is expected to be a top target for them in the summer.
Until now, he was an active member of Citysnakk — a Facebook group for Scandinavian supporters of Manchester City.
Haaland spent 18 months as part of Citysnakk before quitting last year as people kept pestering him to sign for the club.
Alfie, his dad remains staunch member and one of the group admins said: “It was clear from his time with the group that Erling is a passionate supporter of our club.
“We’re all delighted he is getting his chance to play at the Etihad. It’s a dream draw for him and his family.
“We would love it if one day he is playing there more regularly!”
