Erling Haaland just showed Man United and Man City he's ready for transfer

Manchester Evening News 18 August, 2021 - 10:00am

Erling Haaland cast an increasingly frustrated figure on Tuesday as Borussia Dortmund lost to Bayern Munich.

Bayern clinched their ninth consecutive German Supercup at the expense of Haaland's Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park when emerging as the 3-1 winners and that was a scoreline that Haaland, rather unsurprisingly, looked visibly angered by on the pitch.

Haaland, 21, is one of the world's most promising young centre-forwards after scoring 41 goals across all competitions last season and those stellar displays have led to Europe's elite clubs, including Manchester United and Manchester City, registering an interest.

Although Dortmund have made it clear they won't sanction an exit for Haaland this summer, it's widely expected that the Norwegian could leave for pastures new next year and the youngster's body language against Bayern Munich offered hope for that outcome.

With Bayern asserting their superiority over Dortmund once again on Tuesday night in the German Supercup, fans of United and City would have noticed a degree of petulance in the contest from Haaland - he began by kicking the air after his side conceded.

Haaland also kicked the ball away after a decision went against him and made his feelings clear after his goal was ruled off for offside.

While the centre-forward is typically fiery in his performances and style of play, one could freely perceive Haaland's body language as a transfer plea after becoming tired of Dortmund making no progress against Bundesliga champions Bayern.

Bayern won their ninth league title last season while Dortmund sacked their manager before finishing third in the table.

"I have a contract for a couple of fine years, so I am respectful towards my contract," Haaland has previously said, but sometimes actions are louder than words.

"Title Hamster" Julian Nagelsmann pleased with Bayern Munich’s performance in win over Borussia Dortmund

Julian Nagelsmann finally got his first win as a manager at Bayern Munich.

“We defended very well and were very aggressive. Unfortunately, we didn’t take the lead straight away. We absolutely deserved to win,” Nagelsmann said after the match (as captured by Tz),

Will the DFL-Supercup victory be the first of many future titles? Nagelsmann hopes so — and he explained his desire to win in an extremely odd way.

“First of all, I would like more titles. I have such small hamster teeth, as you can see, and so of course I would like to be a ‘Title Hamster*’,” Nagelsmann said.

Uh, okay. “Title Hamster” it is.

Anyway, Nagelsmann went on to credit his predecessor, Hansi Flick, with playing a part in the team’s success.

“We don’t have too much time to celebrate. The title is a reward for last season when Hansi Flick became champion. I’m happy, but the title belongs to more people than me,” Nagelsmann said.
