But he had to wait for his first taste of a Guardiola training session as the Cityzens started pre-season later than some of their Prem rivals.

Instead, the 21-year-old has moved to Manchester, notably leaving hysterical fans with his ‘student shop’ at his local Sainsbury’s last week.

But the Norwegian finally got the chance to take on his new teammates as they went through a tough session in baking conditions in Texas.

Haaland beamed from ear to ear as he was put through his paces ahead of games against Club America and former rivals Bayern Munich.

He battled for the ball with Ederson during a training session and worked on his strength and conditioning in the gym.

And once training was over, the striker enjoyed an ice bath alongside Oleksandr Zinchenko and Jack Grealish.

England star Grealish also smiled in training this week as he welcomed another new signing to the squad, Kalvin Phillips.

Before flying to America, Grealish was joined by teammates Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Kyle Walker and Phil Foden, at The Bubble Room in Alderley Edge.

Many of City’s international stars have returned to their training facilities this week to start preparing for the new campaign.

After a hard week of fitness work, a Friday night outing was just the thing – as Mahrez celebrated his new contract extension, signed on Friday.
