Erling Haaland Met The Manchester City Chefs And Immediately Asked For His Favourite Meal

Erling Haaland met the Manchester City chefs and immediately asked for the first of what looks set to be many meals.

The Norwegian goal machine's big-money move to City was officially confirmed on Monday, with Haaland signing a five-year contract.

City captured all the behind-scenes footage, from the first part of his medical in Barcelona to meeting departing captain Fernandinho in Manchester and signing his deal.

He also linked up with new teammates Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte as well as many important staff members at the club.

But the 21-year-old, who apparently "eats like a bear", was most excited to be introduced to the team chefs.

In the 'Inside City' special feature on Haaland, the former Borussia Dortmund and Red Bull Salzburg striker exchanges pleasantries with the chefs.

He says, "All good? Because you should be my favourite people!"

One of the chefs then asks Haaland if he wants anything, to which he responds, "Yeah I would like some breakfast, omelette please - cheese and ham."

While Tom the chef gets to work on whipping up Haaland's favourite dish, he helps himself to some fruit.

Just from this meeting, you get the impression that Haaland and the chefs are going to develop quite the relationship.

After all, the 6ft4 man mountain needs some serious fuel to keep himself going.

Erase Steenslid, a former coach of Haaland's, revealed he was "always the closest to the buffet" and his food consumption helped him 12 kilos of muscle in a 15 month period when he was younger.

According to his father Alf-Inge, a former City player, Haaland also copied Cristiano Ronaldo's diet in a bid to get to the very top.

"He was told a story by Patrice Evra about a lunch he had with Ronaldo and Cristiano had fish, nothing else," Haaland Sr told ESPN back in 2019.

"Erling now tries to do the same things because Ronaldo is 34 and still at the top of the game, so it shows the value of doing the right things.

"Erling has always been talented. You see lots of talented young players, but not all of them have the determination."

Haaland, who scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund, will link up with Pep Guardiola's squad after the international break and head to the United States as part of the team's pre-season tour.
