Kevin De Bruyne has spoken out on Erling Haaland as the youngster is set to join Manchester City ahead of the 2022/2023 season.

Haaland will join City on July 1st after two seasons with Borussia Dortmund.

The 21-year-old made overall 89 appearances in which he scored 86 goals and provided 23 assists.

Speaking in an interview HLN, De Bruyne said: “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 9, but I think it’ll be good to have that striker that maybe scores 20-25 goals a season.

“Maybe (his arrival might help me too). There have been years that I have more assists (than this season). But my chance creation and other things have remained consistent. Numbers are a part of football but they never tell you the full story.”
