Haaland hints on preferred Shirt Number

Erling Haaland may have hinted at which Manchester City shirt number he wants after posting a picture of himself in a City kit as a youngster.

Haaland will become a City player on July 1 and fans are waiting to see a picture of him in the shirt and which number he’ll be taking.

The 21-year-old wore number nine at Borussia Dortmund and that’s currently occupied by Gabriel Jesus, who could be moving on this summer.

Other numbers typically wore by strikers are already taken at the Etihad Stadium too, with club record signing Jack Grealish sporting the number ten and Oleksandr Zinchenko donning number 11.

Haaland himself offered a potential clue on Twitter with two images captioned: “To be continued…”

In the images, the back of Haaland’s shirt reads ‘Dad 15’ which is the number his father Alf-Inge wore during his time at City.

Number 15 has been vacant since 2019 and was last worn by Eliaquim Mangala.

Haaland’s arrival will give Pep Guardiola’s side that focal point up front, something they’ve been missing since Sergio Aguero’s departure last summer.
