Erling Haaland posts adorable throwback snap in City shirt as he sends message to fans

ERLING HAALAND addressed his Manchester City move for the first time — with an amazing throwback photo.

The £51million signing posted a snap online of himself as a toddler wearing City’s home kit from the 2001-02 season.

And the 21-year-old Norwegian striker wrote: “To be continued…”

Haaland, whose dad Alf Inge played for the club from 2000 to 2003, has not had his move officially confirmed yet.

That’s despite City announcing a deal is in place with Borussia Dortmund last month.

Pep Guardiola pounced for Haaland after failing to replace Sergio Aguero last summer.

City’s top target back then was Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Guardiola revealed City had FOUR bids rejected by Daniel Levy.

That’s despite the final one reportedly topping £125m.

But City are sure to be delighted at paying less than half that sum for a striker already considered one of the world’s best.

Despite his young age, Haaland netted an incredible 86 goals in just 89 games at Dortmund.

Before that, he scored 29 times in 27 games at RB Salzburg.

And Haaland also has 18 international goals in 20 caps for Norway.

His arrival at the Etihad is set to spell the end of Guardiola’s ‘false nine’ experiment.

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling were all given chances to lead the line.

It certainly allowed City to play their typically fluid football.

But Guardiola hopes the presence of Haaland means his side stick away more chances than usual.

The hitman himself will certainly have to adapt, just like last summer’s £100m signing Jack Grealish.
