The 20-year-old Norwegian has arrived in Manchester ahead of Borussia Dortmund‘s Champions League quarter-final first leg at the Etihad on Tuesday.
The Dortmund’s striker tops City’s list of replacements, who will have to beat off competition from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus among others for his signature.
The 20-year-old would be a dream signing for City to replace Sergio Aguero, who is leaving the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires this summer.
While fans were unable to approach Haaland, Borussia Dortmund security staff agreed to take shirts in for the striker to sign inside the hotel.
The image which emerged on social media after being posted by City Xtra showed the striker entering the Lowry wearing a blue bag.
This had lots of the Man City fans talking.
