Premier League striker Joshua King has revealed that Norway’s international teammate Erling Haaland still “loves Leeds” and also “loves Prem”, with his future still in the air ahead of the summer.
Haaland’s goal record for Borussia Dortmund – 70 in just 69 matches – has made him one of the most talked about footballers in the world.
He has a € 75m (£ 63m) release clause in his contract that will take effect this summer, which will surely start a race for his signature from Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid, all of whom are expected to be on the market. for a “number nine”.
Regardless of whether it dictates where he will move to the summer – if he moves at all – King has revealed that Haaland is a big fan of Premier League football.
In addition, he is still a big fan of Leeds. The 21-year-old was born in the city in 2000 when his father played for the club and he has maintained that connection long after he moved.
But even if a move to Leeds is apparently not underway soon, it underscores the possibility that he may end up on Elland Road before retiring, after telling a Norwegian newspaper in 2017 that it is his “dream” to win Premier League with Leeds.
King appeared during an episode of Ben Foster’s latest The Cycling GK matchday vlog and also added that Haaland, with whom he has played internationally since 2019, eats “like a bear”.
“He’s just a freak,” said the Watford forward. “I’ve never seen anyone eat as much as he does. He refills. He’s shredded but, I do not know, he only eats like a bear.
“He’s such a nice guy. Obviously he came across in a few interviews [not], but he’s one of the nicest guys, he’s down to earth. He’s just a kid who likes football.
“I know he loves Leeds. I do not know if that will happen, but I would love to see him in the Prem. I said last summer, ‘You have to come to the Premier League.’ [but] he is still young, so he has time. ”
