Erling Haaland's stunned reaction after giant striker discovers he has grown in Man City medical | The Sun

ERLING HAALAND was left stunned after Manchester City doctors revealed he had GROWN during his medical.

The Norwegian striker, 21, officially completed his £51million move to the Etihad earlier this week.

Haaland signed a five-year contract worth a staggering £375,000 a week.

The deal was the worst-kept secret in football, with City long tipped to sign the star man.

But one thing did surprise everyone, including Haaland himself…

During his medical, City docs measured the giant forward at 1.952m tall – roughly 6ft 5in.

Incredibly, after being told his height, Haaland looked baffled before saying: "Oh wow, I've grown… almost one centimetre."

Man City gave fans a sneak peak behind the scenes at the ex-Borussia Dortmund man's medical.

The film began with Haaland touching down for the first part of his medical in Barcelona, where he got to meet new team-mates Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias at Dr Ramon Cugat’s clinic.

The City defenders were quick to congratulate their new pal on the move.

The cameras then accompanied him on a private jet to Manchester to complete his fitness checks at the MIHP medical complex.

Haaland – who joins City exactly 21 years after his dad Alf-Inge completed his move from Leeds – then paid his first visit to the club’s training base, where he was welcomed by City icon Mike Summerbee.

He then met a host of staff members in the office and kitchen before bumping into departing captain Fernandinho and his son.

Haaland underwent a number of internal media duties, posing in both their new kit and re-enacting the famous shot of him wearing the jersey as a child when his father Alf-Inge played.

He then sealed the deal by officially putting pen to paper on his contract alongside director of football Txiki Begiristain before posing for the cameras.

Haaland was officially unveiled as Man City's first signing of the summer on Monday morning.

Speaking about his decision to sign for City, the ex-Borussia Dortmund man said: "This is a proud day for me and my family.

"I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons.

"You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me.

“There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep Guardiola is one of the greatest managers of all time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.
