UCL: Erling Haaland reveals real reason Man City signed him

Erling Haaland reveals why Man City signed him



Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has said that he was well aware of why he was brought to the Etihad Stadium last summer.

 The Norwegian said he is well aware that he was bought from Borussia Dortmund to  help the Cityzenes win the Champions League.

Manchester City will lock horns with Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday as Pep Guardiola’s side is just one victory away from claiming the prize they covet most.

The trophy has eluded Man City time after time with several near misses in recent years.

Haaland has been key to their latest charge to the final, where they face Inter Milan in Istanbul on Saturday, after a prolific first season at the Etihad Stadium.

The Norwegian has plundered 52 goals in all competitions since City identified him as the potential final piece in their jigsaw last year and paid £51million to recruit him from Borussia Dortmund.

“The Premier League, they won it two times in a row before I came here,” Haaland told reporters ahead of the game. “So they know how to win the Premier League.

“The only thing they miss now is the Champions League. You can think and read between the words and the lines – I have been coming here for a reason.”
