Erling Haaland wants to see out his contract at Manchester City

Erling Haaland wants a five-year stay at Manchester City.

The Norwegian striker moved to City from Borussia Dortmund in a £51.2m transfer earlier in July.

The player is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the world of football and is now planning to stay at City for the long-term as he looks to make his mark on the Premier League.

When asked about his Etihad stay, Haaland said: “At least five years. I’ve signed a five-year deal, so we have to start with that.

“In some ways my progress has been quick but also not, when you see how I’ve been performing. It was a big step going to Molde from my hometown club, it was a big step going to Salzburg, Dortmund and now England. But it’s been going good. I’ve been taking the chances really. I’ve been thinking through a lot of things every time and now I’m just looking forward to it.”

After Brazilian international Gabriel Jesus signed over for Arsenal, Erling was handed the No. 9 shirt for City which he described as a “dream come true”.

He added: “I'm delighted to have been presented with the number 9. It's been part of my story over the last two years, both at club level and with the national team and I'm looking forward to continuing that at City. It's a shirt that every striker aspires to and to wear it at one of the best clubs in the world is a dream come true. I can't wait to get started.”
