"Beautiful, huh?" The two words that Erling Haaland said to Borussia Dortmund team mate Jude Bellingham as he walked through the tunnel at the Etihad Stadium for training on Monday afternoon.
If the sky blue backpack and face mask weren't enough for Manchester City fans to get excited about on Monday, the aforementioned two words certainly were, as Erling Haaland strolled out into the sunshine at the home of the current Premier League leaders.
The breakthrough Norwegian forward is known to be the Etihad officials' number one striker target to succeed Sergio Aguero in the upcoming transfer window, and fans across the globe will be watching his every move across the two-legs, as Borussia Dortmund clash with Pep Guardiola's side in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The official Twitter page of the Bundesliga side captured the moment Haaland and Jude Bellingham strolled out for training at the Etihad Stadium on Monday afternoon, and after posing for a couple of photographs, the 20 year-old glanced forward at the pitch before saying:
Unsurprisingly, Manchester City fans have reacted in their numbers at the clip, but really it shouldn't be anything to be surprised about as we all know by now that Erling Haaland is a blue through and through.
Throughout his childhood, and prior to the forward coming to prominence at Red Bull Salzburg, Haaland would often attend Manchester City matches with his father and former player at the Premier League side, Alf-Inge.
While being the proud owner of several retro City shirts, Haaland was also a fan of former Blues striker Mario Balotelli - whom he had printed on his 2011/2012 edition of the Manchester City home kit.
Tuesday night presents Haaland with the perfect opportunity to prove his worth, and a perfect opportunity for Manchester City fans to potentially get a better look at a man who could soon be donning the Sky Blue shirt - but before then, there's Mino Raiola to deal with, and that's no small feat.
