Haaland burst on the scene this season and on Tuesday he scored his seventh goal in four Champions League appearances, which is two more than any other player in the same number of games in the competition’s history.
The 19-year-old’s performances have led to significant speculation about his future and the likes of Manchester United have been heavily linked.
