In the summer of 2022, Haaland skipped many big clubs to join Man City. However, the Manchester club only had to spend 75 million euros to own him from Dortmund.

Pep Guardiola: ‘No one can compare to Haaland at the same age’
Coach Pep Guardiola has stated that no one of Erling Haaland’s age can compete with him. There were doubts about whether Haaland could adapt to the Premier League when City signed him. However, the 22-year-old is setting new goalscoring records, as he has scored 17 goals this season.
Haaland’s fine form at Manchester City has earned him numerous accolades from coaches and analysts.
“At his age, no one can have such an achievement,” Guardiola told a press conference ahead of City’s Champions League match against Copenhagen.
“The numbers speak for themselves, we are happy to have him here.”
Haaland is even better than what Man City fans predicted at the beginning of the season. However, the true value of his appearance will be tested at the end of the season. He has been signed to bring his first Champions League trophy to the Etihad Stadium, the title Guardiola has coveted since he left Barcelona.
Currently, there is no limit for Haaland. He is aiming to record the most Premier League goals in a season (currently 34).
The Norwegian striker will almost get the Golden Shoe title when he has scored 14 goals in just 8 appearances in the Premier League.
