Move over Kylian Mbappe, move over Lionel Messi, move over Ronaldo, move over Neymar, move over… basically anyone.
For there’s a new talk of the town, he’s big, brawny, blonde and brilliant, simply put, he’s unstoppable.
Manchester City‘s Erling Haaland is football’s hottest topic, a trend showing no signs of stoppage, especially since every subsequent performance by the Norwegian is just another tour de force.
Following the transfer’s initial announcement, fans online had some reservations, mostly regarding Haaland’s transition into a comparatively harder League.
Many levied ‘Bundesliga Tax‘ on the striker and questioned his abilities.
And now, you won’t hear a peep out of them.
11 goals in 7 in the Prem, 2 out of 2 in the Champions League, all while taking minimal touches, the levels are Terminator-esque.
Haaland isn’t just outscoring his Premier League contemporaries, but also entire teams.
The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, and Brighton have all scored less than the 22-year-old.
The scariest part is, this is only the beginning.
Naturally, his incredible start in England has made him a popular topic of discussion, with fans constantly gushing over his ridiculous abilities on the pitch.
His innately alluring personality also helps the trend endure, with fans hankering to learn more and more about the player.
The insane attention is even beginning to take over the lives of his teammates, as revealed by Jack Grealish, who is essentially Haaland’s partner in crime.
Speaking in a presser while on international duty, Grealish said, “Listen, everywhere I go now, whether it be family, friends, people in the street, they always say, ‘what’s he like?’.”
The 27-year-old then goes on to heap plenty of praise upon his teammate, “I can’t speak highly enough of him. He’s an unbelievable player. He’s brilliant as a person, so humble for what he’s achieved already. His mindset for scoring goals is unbelievable honestly.”
As reflected in his comments, Grealish and Haaland are getting on pretty well. And a special duo celebration after goals simply must happen, it is only fair.
With the majority of the season still to come, we have a feeling this may just be a very lethal partnership in the making.
