Erling Haaland signed for Manchester City this week. The Premier League leaders have paid €60 million to get one of Europe’s hottest talents.

The 21-year-old arrives in the Premier League after scoring a phenomenal 85 goals in 88 games for Borussia Dortmund. However, the striker believes that one day he will play in Spain, according to Norwegian journalist Jonas Adnan Giæver on Cadena SER’s El Larguero.

“I’ve known Haaland since he was 16. It was clear that he would soon emigrate, it was only a matter of time,” Giæver said.

Possible future in Spain

“I was talking to someone very close to him. They have told me that he has rejected Spain, but it was a very difficult decision. He is not in a hurry and they have seen what is happening at City with Guardiola. There is a space up front. At Real Madrid, there is Benzema, who can be a Ballon d’Or winner.”

“Haaland is a winner, he just wants to win. If it’s with the best in the world, all the better. He thinks the option of going to Spain will happen again. He is not ruling it out. He has seen everything and he has made the decision. In time, I don’t know if it will be Barcelona or Madrid. I don’t think he has a preference right now. Rejecting Spain was very difficult, that’s why the decision has been delayed. He is happy, he has chosen a big club. That’s exciting for him.”
