Erling Haaland’s former youth coach says part of the striker’s heart will always be in England amid transfer speculation over his future.
Having been born in Leeds whilst his father played for City and been managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his time at Molde, Norway youth coach Gunnar Halle says the forward likely has emotional connections to both clubs.
Halle, who played alongside Alf-Inge Haaland at Leeds United before going on to coach Erling Haaland at international youth level, believes the striker will not be looking to move for money when he does eventually leave Dortmund, but instead be on the lookout for success.
He told the Daily Star: “It’s difficult to say with the Spanish and English interest there are so many things now that have to be considered with his agent and everything and the money, of course, will be quite a lot.
“But of course I think a little bit of his heart will be in England because his dad was playing there with Leeds and City but also his connection with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so I think his dad will maybe play a part.”

He added: “Erling will be thinking about where he can have more success in the way he is playing and not the money, he will get a lot of money anywhere.
“I think they will see where he can play his best football and where the team and manager can help him.
“So it’s difficult to say at this moment.”
