Haaland ‘might only stay at Man City for two and a half YEARS’, claims his dad


Erling Haaland could walk out on Manchester City after just two and a half years to satisfy his desire to ‘test out every league,’ his dad Alfie has revealed.

Speaking on the newly-released documentary ‘Haaland – The Big Decision’ on Viaplay, the former Manchester City and Leeds toughman said he thinks his son would like to play football all over the continent, despite penning a five-year contract with City in the summer.

‘I think Erling wants to test out his capabilities in every league. Then he can stay in every league for three to four years maximum,’ Haaland Snr said.

This news won’t be particularly pleasing for City fans to hear after the Norwegian has made a blistering start to life in Manchester.

The 22-year-old has scored 11 goals in just seven Premier League games and doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon. Yet, Premier League defenders might only have to face up against Haaland for just a couple more years.

‘He could have two-and-a-half years in Germany, two-and-a-half in England, and then in Spain, Italy, France, right?’, Alfie Haaland continued.

‘We do not know if it will be like that, but I think he would like to test his abilities in the big leagues.’

Haaland had his choice of clubs in the summer as he became the most highly sought after footballer on the planet – and it is likely interest in him won’t die down in the years to come.

But one team who may never win the services of Haaland are his current neighbours Manchester United.

When speaking about the different clubs the former Dortmund man was deciding between in the summer, the Old Trafford side never came up in conversation.

‘On our list, I think City is the best team,’ explained Alfie. ‘[Bayern] Munich is number two. We have Real Madrid as number three, Paris Saint-Germain as number four.

‘We also have some English teams other than City who are quite good… Liverpool and Chelsea. Also, there is Barcelona. They are sort of in the same row.’

United were heavily linked to Haaland when former boss, and fellow Norwegian, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in charge, but it is a damning statement that the Red Devils were never in the running to secure his services in the summer.
