'That would be a very nice dream' - Erling Haaland makes Leeds admission

Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has admitted that he dreams of winning the Champions League title with Leeds United.

Haaland, 19, is one of the hottest properties in football at the moment, scoring 12 goals in 10 appearances since joining Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in January.

Before he left Salzburg, Haaland had netted 28 goals in 22 matches across all competitions.

Haaland was born in Leeds and is the son of former Leeds United star Alf-Inge Haaland, who also played for Manchester City and Nottingham Forest before retiring at the age of 30 due to a knee injury.

Norway international Haaland has now revealed that he hopes to one day play for Leeds and help them win the biggest prize in European football.

“That would be a very nice dream,” Haaland told FourFourTwo when asked if he’d want to win the Champions League with Leeds. “My father played for different Premier League teams, so of course you become a fan. You support them because you support your dad.”

Imagine if Leeds win promotion this season, stabilise in the Premier League and then manage to lure Haaland to Elland Road, just as they did when they signed his father in 1997.

Haaland’s form has been freakish this season – he cannot stop scoring.

Many would have guessed that his goalscoring streak would have slowed down a bit upon joining Dortmund, where he’d be playing against stronger opposition. But that hasn’t been the case.

One day he could head to the Premier League and let’s hope it’s with Leeds.
