Is Erling Haaland Dating An Underage Girlfriend? Online Myth Busted

Fans have always maintained a keen interest in the personal lives of their favourite Footballers, especially in their romantic relationships.

Whenever Football WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) are discovered, a discourse breaks out online, usually about peculiar topics.

Another such discussion occurred yesterday, as the partner of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland was reportedly confirmed.

The 22-year-old is currently spending his time resting and recharging on holiday, and by the looks of it, he’s joined by his girlfriend.

The two were spotted together in Marbella, Haaland’s preferred vacation destination, and as per reports, they are residing in the striker’s villa.

Reputable publications state the girl in the picture to be Isabel Haugseng Johansen.

A footballer herself, Johansen plays for Bryne Fotballklubb, a local side from Haaland’s hometown.

The pair met through Football and have been long-time friends, with things escalating just a few months ago.

She has even been to a few of Haaland’s games, both for City and Dortmund. 

After its discovery, the relationship was on the receiving end of a few dubious claims.

They looked to have stemmed from an Instagram account bearing Johansen’s name, with the bio suggesting that Haaland’s girlfriend is a 17-year-old.

Naturally, fans online waved the red flag immediately and called out the striker for dating an underage girl.

As is often the case, the claims were unfounded, and you don’t need us to tell you how simple it is to forge an Instagram account.

Going by reports, Johansen is actually 18, and well within the definition of an adult.

The doubts all simmered after the information came out, although a few naysayers still persisted and took issue with the age difference. 

Considering that the difference is merely 4 years apart and that the couple are both very young, these doubts have no weight whatsoever.

With the relationship all but confirmed, Haaland and Johansen may just begin making public appearances together.
