Erling Haaland once posed in full Arsenal shirt as a kid as Gunners fans joked 'he's coming home' before Man City move | The Sun

ARSENAL fans were sent wild when an old picture of Erling Haaland in a Gunners kit was posted on social media back in 2022.

The 22-year-old sensation left Borussia Dortmund last summer for a bargain £51million move to Manchester City.

Manchester City appeared to always be in pole position for his signature, with Haaland reportedly jetting to Monaco for talks on several occasions before his switch.

It ended up being a dream move for the Norwegian, who scored an astonishing 52 goals in all competitions.

He also broke the record for most goals in a Premier League season with 36.

But, better still, his side managed to win a historic treble – with the 1-0 Champions League final win over Inter Milan being the icing on the cake of a remarkable debut campaign.

But an old photo posted to Twitter by Football.London's Chris Wheatley once caused quite the stir among Arsenal fans.

In the snap Haaland can be seen wearing a yellow Gunners away kit with matching shorts.

The kit is dated from the 2010-11 season, and was also used as the away kit for the next two campaigns, but it's unknown when the picture was taken.

Nevertheless some fans joked it was a sign that Haaland could have been heading to the Emirates instead,

Instead, the Gunners added former Man City man Gabriel Jesus to their ranks, who made way for Haaland.

One excited supporter wrote on social media at the time: "He’s coming home then."

Meanwhile another said: "He's a Gooner through and through."

Others called for Haaland's Norway team-mate Martin Odegaard to help get a deal over the line, with one writing: "Agent Odegaard."

Unfortunately for Arsenal fans, Haaland did end up opting for Man City instead.

And if wearing a shirt was anything to go by, last year the goal machine was spotted wearing Leeds United shorts as he signed fans for autographs.

Maybe that's where he will retire?
