Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had set his eyes on a young and unproven Bryne player. He was just a teenager when arriving at Molde and no one really had made any notice as the young player was in real still a working article.
When he left Bryne at the age of 16 he had played a handfull of games in their first team and not scored a single goal, and his presence was not really as impressive as you would believe when signed by Molde.
The shape of a grand footballer started under the management of OGS as Molde and of course being under the wings of one of the top goalscorers in football might have helped progress.
During his short stay at Molde he was shaped into a good striker, but still after 39 league games for “City of Roses” he had scored 14 goals and made an impact and enough to convince super agent Mino Raiola to bring this young talent into his squad of recruits.
His move to Red Bull Leipzig came about and again the time in Austria became historical as he managed to shock Europe with a number of special goals and interest grow as the talent of Erling Braut Haaland flourished.
Still a teenager entering the gates of Westfalen and making a new and good step as he just start scoring goals like an exploding bomb. The this date 58 in 63 Bundesliga games, records in Europe and being nominated Ballon d’Or. He has won the cup in Germany and league and cup in Austria.
The next step is now more or less decided as Pep Guardiola looks to have won the race for his signature and are without as top striker at the moment, but will EBH fit the pattern of Pep Guardiola?
Premier League is a tricky league, but this move looks as a perfect match with his father a former Man City player and Mino Raioloa making no mistakes as the agent seldom makes moves for his clients that does not work out as well as expected both from a financial and sporting point of view.
Getting Erling Braut Haaland and see him in a Man City shirt would be thrilling as the PL again will excite the globe with another major star and build their brand. This is sporting math at it’s best.
