Erling Haaland breaks his silence on Man City transfer move

When asked about his move to Manchester City before of Norway’s forthcoming match against Serbia on Thursday, new Manchester City signing Erling Haaland remained tight-lipped.

City agreed to sign the striker from Borussia Dortmund earlier this month, subject to him agreeing to personal conditions. City is expected to pay him £51 million for his services.

Since joining Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, the Norwegian international has established himself as one of the most highly-rated players in the world. He was also extensively linked with a move to Real Madrid and French heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain. In 89 games for the German team, he scored 86 goals.
Despite the fact that he is about to join the current English champions and one of football’s all-time great managers in Pep Guardiola, Haaland remained tight-lipped when questioned about his transfer to Manchester. He was more concerned with Norway’s impending UEFA Nations League matches against Serbia, Slovenia, and two matches versus Sweden.

“It’s been a difficult few months,” Haaland remarked. “This hasn’t been easy, but at the same time, I’ve been trying my best for Borussia Dortmund for the past two and a half years.”

“It wasn’t easy, but I gave it my all for the club.” “I’m thrilled because I’m ready for four games [with the national team].”

To be fair to Haaland, Norwegian manager Stale Solbakken began the press conference by stating that the 21-year-old would not be addressing any questions on his transfer to City. He stressed that he has yet to be officially introduced by the club.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, on the other hand, has been ready to discuss the Norwegian international’s arrival. During a special interview on Monday, he revealed that he thinks City have signed a “very good striker.”

“Haaland has been on our radar for at least four or five years,” Al Mubarak said in an interview on City’s website. “From his early days in Norway and then moving on to Dortmund, he has been on our radar for at least four or five years.”

“He is a one-of-a-kind, very skilled attacker who I believe the entire world has been watching.” Every major club in the world reportedly wanted [him] to come, and we’re ecstatic that Haaland selected Manchester City.”
