Haaland has a personal connection with Man City, as his father, Alf-Inge Haaland, made 38 appearances for the club.
This, perhaps, makes the transfer more attractive to Haaland Jr, as he may want to continue the legacy of his father.
Pictures of Erling Haaland wearing a Manchester City shirt as a child have re-circulated on social media, following the reports of a potential move to the Etihad.

Man City fans took to twitter and gave the 'Stockport Iniesta' a brand new nickname - 'Agent Phil'!
