As Manchester City finalize their own preparations ahead of Erling Haaland’s official unveiling, the Norwegian striker may have taken matters into his own hands on Sunday night.
The now former Borussia Dortmund striker was once again at the center of scoring antics for his country, as Norway secured a 2-1 win over Sweden at the weekend, with both goals scored by Erling Haaland.
Manchester City’s incoming £51million centre-forward celebrated his performance in true Mancunian spirit in the Norwegian dressing room after the game, as he took to social media to chill with one of the greatest hits of all time from Oasis.
In an Instagram Story uploaded after the win, Erling Haaland filmed himself swinging on Oasis’wall of wonders‘, with many Manchester City fans taking this as their own official announcement of the player’s imminent arrival at the Etihad Stadium.

Haaland was in high spirits after scoring from the penalty spot to give Norway the lead against Sweden in the first half of their UEFA Nations League clash, before doubling his country’s lead with a strike right foot well taken within 45 seconds.
Manchester City confirmed last month that they had reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund and Erling Haaland for the player’s transfer, with the transfer expected to be formalized and the player arriving at the club on July 1.
Erling Haaland is expected to join new teammates and Pep Guardiola for the club’s pre-season tour of the United States in mid-July as they seek to defend their Premier League crown for the third consecutive season.
