Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has made high demands on new signing Erling Haaland.
In an interview with the Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws the midfielder emphasized that he expects “a lot” from the Norwegian. De Bruyne added: “It would be good to have a striker who scores 20 to 25 goals in a season.”
In his year and a half at BVB, Haaland had already proven that he could reach this mark. In 89 competitive games he had scored 86 goals for Dortmund. On top of that, the 21-year-old prepared 23 goals.
Ilkay Gündogan is also hoping for a lot from Haaland. “We’ve seen that, especially in tight games, we might need someone who has the physical strength to win duels, hold the ball and even force a goal with a header,” he said in one Interview with the FAZ.
Dortmund and Manchester City announced Haaland’s move in May. However, the Skyblues have not yet publicly presented their new goalscorer.
