“We even have some English teams aside from City who’re quite good. Liverpool and Chelsea. Also, there may be Barcelona. They’re kind of in the identical row.”
Haaland admitted that Pep Guardiola’s presence at City played a component in his decision. The Norway international has performed incredibly well under the previous Barcelona boss.
“I even have never transferred to a club due to the manager. Nevertheless it is a giant plus with [Pep] Guardiola at City, as he’s the perfect manager on the earth. It’s the perfect sporting project on the earth for the time being and it’s where I’ll do my best.”
Haaland also revealed that several City players convinced him to hitch the side following Dortmund’s Champions League match with the English side in 2021. He added: “After that game, I believe 15 people said I should come. [John] Stones and Ruben Dias, [Ilkay] Gundogan, [Phil] Foden, [Kevin] De Bruyne…”
