Erling Haaland, a teammate at Manchester City, has the potential to score 800 goals before the conclusion of his career, according to Kevin de Bruyne.
Haaland has scored 24 goals in only 19 games since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund, and he will be returning to his hometown when the champions open their Premier League title defense at Leeds on Wednesday.
If he stays healthy and continues to do what he does, De Bruyne predicted that he could reach 600, 700, or 800 goals. He currently has about 200 goals.
Regarding the position of 22-year-old Erling Haaland in the hierarchy of strikers, the Belgian international is in a good position having played alongside a number of elite players.
Sergio Aguero, the club’s all-time leading scorer, and De Bruyne had a successful working relationship before the Argentinian left the Etihad Stadium in 2021.
Romelu Lukaku, Gabriel Jesus, a former City teammate, and World Cup champion Julian Alvarez, a current City player, have all worked together while he was on international duty.
De Bruyne remarked, “They are all completely different, so it is quite difficult to compare.” “All of them have 300 or 400 ambitions. Erling is so driven by his ambitions that he may perhaps surpass it “.
Added him: “He still enjoys life as a young boy and plays football quite seriously. The most distinctive quality he possesses, in my opinion, is his love of scoring goals “.
