Speaking about Haaland, : “When I look at the market and see who I would spend that much money on, he would probably be one of two.

“On top of that, you have him under contract for five years, and Erling is already guaranteed something then.

“If he stays injury-free, he can dominate the next ten or twelve years like .”
