Manchester City fans are loving Erling Haaland’s reaction as he stepped out at the Etihad Stadium for Borussia Dortmund’s training session on Monday night.

City are one of the clubs in the race to sign Haaland this summer, although they are expected to face strong competition from Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, City will be buoyed by Haaland’s initial verdict of the Etihad as he and Jude Bellingham made their way to the pitch for training ahead of their Champions League clash against Pep Guardiola’s side.

After sharing a brief exchange with the England international, Haaland looked out towards the pitch and said ‘it’s beautiful, huh’.

Unsurprisingly, City supporters took Haaland’s brief verdict as a sign of hope ahead of the summer transfer window.

After watching the clip on Twitter, one City fan replied: ‘He said Beautiful. ANNOUNCE THE DEAL @ManCity.’

Another added: ‘Hopefully his new home next season.’

Ahead of City’s quarter-final first leg against Dortmund, Guardiola hailed Haaland as a ‘fantastic striker’.

‘To score that number of goals at his age is not easy to find,’ said the City manager.

‘He’s 20 years old and the numbers speak for themselves. When that happens it’s because he can score with the right [foot], the left, on the counter-attack.

‘He’s a fantastic striker, everyone knows it… it’s not necessary to be a manager to realise it.’
