Manchester City Teammate Still "Has To Develop" According To Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is excited to see one of his new Manchester City teammate 'develop' alongside him, despite already being an 'amazing' player.

Haaland's move from Borussia Dortmund to City was made official on Monday morning, with a video that recreated the famous image of a younger Haaland sat on a couch in a team shirt.

The original picture was due to his dad, Alf Inge Haaland, playing for the Premier League club, and as a quirk of today's announcement, Haaland Sr signed exactly 22 years ago.

The league's latest addition is expected to make a huge impact, considering his impeccable scoring rate so far in his young career and he revealed he's already been keeping a close eye on his new teammates.

Discussing Phil Foden, Haaland sounded very excited about the possibility of the 22-year-old getting even better than he currently is.

"As I say, I've been watching a lot of City games over the last... as long as I can remember," the Norwegian said in his first interview with the club.

"So, of course I've also watched Phil - he's an amazing player, still talented because he's still young.

"He's an amazing player, he still has to develop and then we can really talk."

The England international has had a meteoric rise for City and is already such a huge part of the team's success, having already won five Premier League titles.

He played 28 games in the league in the last campaign, scoring nine goals and putting on five assists for his teammates, a number that's only likely to go up with his new teammate's goal scoring prowess.

Haaland is certainly right though, Foden still has plenty of time to develop and it's been claimed he'll go down as England's greatest ever player if he continues at his current rate.

It's not like Haaland doesn't also have plenty of time to develop into an even better player, which is scary considering he scored 86 times in 89 appearances for Dortmund.

The former Red Bull Salzburg striker is actually younger than Foden, so his claims become borderline ridiculous when that's put into consideration.

Just how good they could be together for years to come makes City even scarier than they already were. Good luck everyone else...
