Erling Haaland loved the workout with a fitness model
Fans think Erling Haaland was spotted enjoying a workout with a jaw-dropping German model a little too much.
Twitter users have been thrown into a meltdown after old footage resurfaced of Borussia Dortmund’s clinical man ‘checking out’ blonde fitness model Pamela Reif. In a YouTube video uploaded to Dortmund’s channel last season, the stunning social media influencer showed Haaland some of her stretching exercises.
At one point in the video, Reif performs an upward dog pose that Haaland has to copy. But the Norwegian ace seemed to enjoy the sight as his eyes wandered and he shot a look of approval.
Fans unsurprisingly expressed amusement after coming across the video, with one Twitter user saying, “Dortmund knows how to keep his young boys happy.”
Another wrote: “They caught my guy in 4K.”
And a third added: “At least we know he’s not a robot now.”
Haaland is reportedly set to join Premier League leaders Manchester City to become English football’s biggest earner on £500,000 a week. Pep Guardiola’s side have reportedly agreed terms with the striker, who has a sensational record of 82 goals in 85 appearances for the Bundesliga behemoths.
The Norwegian phenom’s €75m (£62m) release clause becomes active this summer, putting all of Europe’s top dogs on red alert. And it looks like City are now in pole position in the race to trigger his release clause and make Haaland their star striker.
According to The Daily Mail, he is considered ‘likely’ to sign a five-year contract with City before the end of this season. If Haaland signs with City, it will end Guardiola’s long search for a striker.
The report claims that City hope to secure a deal in time for Haaland to take part in the club’s pre-season US tour in July. Guardiola’s side are set to play two games during this tour, which means Haaland could make his debut well before the start of next season.
