Manchester City playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne, has sent a warning to their Premier League title rivals following the signing of Erling Haaland.
The 21-year-old is believed to have agreed a five-year contract with City, which will see him take home £400,000 per week plus bonuses.
Pep Guardiola’s side racked up an impressive 99 goals in 38 Premier League matches last season and have now added a striker who netted 86 goals in 89 outings for Dortmund.
“Erling Haaland is a top striker. His move should help us to grow as a team.
“Everybody expects a lot. They’ve always been looking for a number nine, but I think it’ll be good to have that striker that maybe scores 20-25 goals a season,” De Bruyne told HLN.
He added: “Maybe (Haaland’s arrival might help me too). There have been years that I have more assists. But my chance creation and other things have remained consistent. Numbers are a part of football but they never tell you the full story.”
