Erling Haaland hints that his switch to Man City is edging closer as he listens to Wonderwall

Erling Haaland looks ahead to his Man City move as he listens to Oasis classic Wonderwall on his Instagram story after scoring twice to help Norway down rivals Sweden

  • Erling Haaland scored a goal in each half on Sunday as Norway beat Sweden 2-1
  • The 21-year-old is set to move to Manchester City for £51.2m at the start of July
  • His father Alfie Haaland spent three years at City while Oasis were still together
  • Haaland junior took to Instagram to show his love of the band’s famous song

Norway star Erling Haaland previewed his transfer to Manchester City by posting a video of himself listening to Oasis hit Wonderwall.

Haaland’s move to the club for £51.2m was announced last month, but it will not be completed until the transfer window opens in July.

Oasis have long been associated with Man City, as was apparent when Noel Gallagher celebrated with the players after their recent Premier League win.

Haaland scored twice as Norway beat Sweden 2-1 in their Nations League clash on Sunday 

Haaland’s father Alfie played for the Citizens from 2000-2003-when Oasis were still close to the peak of their popularity.

In a video posted on Instagram, Haaland swayed to the song while sat in his Norway tracksuit in the changing room. 

It came after a typically dominant display for the striker as he scored twice in a 2-1 win over Sweden in the Nations League. It was Sweden’s first home loss in close to two years.

Haaland looks set to follow his father’s footsteps in playing for Manchester City

His second goal will have been particularly promising for City fans, as the 21-year-old showed his pace and strength to burst into the box and fire a composed, low finish past the keeper.

He now has 18 goals in just 19 Norway games to go with his 62 goals in 67 games for Borussia Dortmund.

If Haaland can come close to matching those numbers at City, next season’s title race may be over very quickly.
