Erling Haaland And Jack Grealish Already Have A Bromance As Tunnel Footage From Bayern Win Emerges
| Last updated
Haaland missed City's 2-1 win against Club America earlier this week but started against Bundesliga giants Bayern in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The 22-year-old opened his account for the Premier League champions inside 12 minutes after turning home a cutback from Grealish.
At full-time, both players made their way down the Lambeau Field tunnel and Grealish was eager to chat with his new teammate.
"Erling! I told you," he can be heard shouting as Haaland turns around.

The Norway international immediately replied: "Exactly, these balls that's what I like."
Grealish decided to get Kalvin Phillips involved in the chat too and explains: "Kal, I said to him just before the game, I'll go down the line and cross it into the box for him so he can finish first time."
If these two can get in sync, we might have one of the Premier League's deadliest duos on our hands.
England international Grealish had a tricky first campaign at the Etihad Stadium despite winning the Premier League title.
He failed to nail down a place in the starting XI and admitted himself he played 'in his own head' too often.
This season is a fresh start however and manager Pep Guardiola has overhauled his side's frontline.
Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus have departed for Chelsea and Arsenal respectively, while Haaland and Julian Alvarez are ready to make an impact.
Haaland discussed City's style of play at full-time and admitted he and Grealish need to 'get better' before the Premier League begins in two weeks time.
He said: "As you probably all know I have been watching a lot of City games for the last years and last year has been without a striker so of course I've been seeing myself in this kind of situations today."

When asked about Grealish, the Norway frontman replied: "He's good, he has to get better, I have to get better. But it's a good link and I like the vibe around him so it's going to be fun."
Haaland scored a whopping 85 goals in 88 games for Borussia Dortmund before signing a five-year deal with City in July.
