Haaland Admits Being At Man City Is For Champions League Glory

Erling Haaland has admitted that Manchester City signed him for £52 million to guide them to Champions League glory.

The Norwegian's admission comes on the back of an impressive showing against RB Leipzig last night to send City into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

City hammered Leipzig 7-0 as Haaland scored five goals, becoming the third player to score five goals in a single Champions League game after Luiz Adriano in October 2014 for Shakhtar Donetsk and Lionel Messi for Barcelona in March 2012.

"Of course the club wants to win the Champions League," said Haaland, who is the youngest player to reach 30 goals in Champions League history (22 years 236 days).

"They've won four out of the last five Premier League titles. 

"They didn't bring me in to win the Premier League because they already know how to win it.

"So, you can read between the lines. 

"I'm here to try to help the club develop even more and to win the Champions League for the first time."

The prolific Norway striker went further to note that he believes he can get even better despite shattering a host of records and closing in on several more.

"I knew I was going to score goals because, last season, how many did they [City] score? Probably 100," the 22-year-old told CBS.

"When I saw them without a striker and they were crossing the ball in, I was like 'ah, I'd love to be there!'

"But there is so much potential in this team and I think we can improve a lot. 

"It's an easy thing to say, but I could have scored more goals. I missed a lot of chances.

"I can get better in everything. I have to be much better - heading, combining, everything."

City have won many titles in recent years but the Champions League have eluded them.

Their best finish in the competition came in 2021 when they got to the finals but lost 1-0 to Chelsea.

They will be hoping that with the potential of Haaland, who sent a warning to other clubs on Tuesday night, they will have a date with destiny.
