WATCH: Erling Haaland Reacts To Seeing Manchester City Training Ground For The First Time

24 hours on from Erling Haaland's official unveiling as a Manchester City player, every supporter of the club remains extremely excited and eager to see him on the field in a Sky Blue shirt.

The 21-year-old has completed a £51 million move from Borussia Dortmund and will end a two-year-long search for Sergio Agüero's successor.

In the Bundesliga, the Norway international has operated at almost a goal per game - further establishing himself as one of the best number nines in Europe. At Borussia Dortmund - via Austrian giants RB Salzburg - he has continued his extraordinary rise to stardom, something he will hope to continue at Manchester City.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, Manchester City released their hugely popular Inside City episode, a mini-documentary behind the scenes of the club on matchday and non-matchdays. Today, however, it was an Erling Haaland special.

A camera team followed the striking sensation from his medical in Barcelona, to meeting some of his new Manchester City teammates, right through to signing the final contracts in the North-West.


One interesting point to note is his approach to the City Football Academy - the club's training facility, where the Norwegian international is sporting a beaming smile.

"First time, good - it looks good," he told the other passengers in the car. "It better be good," he joked.

It is hard not to be impressed with the state-of-the-art facilities the academy provides to the senior men's, women's, Elite Development Squad, and academy age groups - with a £200 million development of East Manchester taking place in 2014.

After eating breakfast with his father - Alfie Haaland - the striker was shown around the place and taken to complete his media duties, which included a photoshoot in the brand new Puma home shirt for the 2022/23 season.

Erling Haaland completed the day by meeting Manchester City's Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain and posing with his new contract - a five-year deal, which keeps him at the club until at least 2027.

Manchester City supporters are obviously excited to see their new star man in action, but they will have to wait until at least July 21st, where Pep Guardiola's side are scheduled to face Club América in the first of three pre-season friendlies in the United States this summer.
