Manchester City fans are loving Erling Haaland’s reaction as he stepped out at the Etihad Stadium for Borussia Dortmund’s training session on Monday night.
However, City will be buoyed by Haaland’s initial verdict of the Etihad as he and Jude Bellingham made their way to the pitch for training ahead of their Champions League clash against Pep Guardiola’s side.
After sharing a brief exchange with the England international, Haaland looked out towards the pitch and said ‘it’s beautiful, huh’.
Unsurprisingly, City supporters took Haaland’s brief verdict as a sign of hope ahead of the summer transfer window.
After watching the clip on Twitter, one City fan replied: ‘He said Beautiful. ANNOUNCE THE DEAL @ManCity.’
Another added: ‘Hopefully his new home next season.’
Ahead of City’s quarter-final first leg against Dortmund, Guardiola hailed Haaland as a ‘fantastic striker’.
‘To score that number of goals at his age is not easy to find,’ said the City manager.
‘He’s a fantastic striker, everyone knows it… it’s not necessary to be a manager to realise it.’
