At the 2023 Ballon d’Or, the 23-year-old came in second place to Lionel Messi, the prize for an unprecedented debut season at Manchester City during which he amassed 52 goals across all competitions and helped the club earn a historic treble of the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League.

Haaland, who has scored 17 goals in 18 appearances across all competitions in 2023/24, has shown no symptoms of waning, and his insatiable desire for goals continues to pique the interest of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

 

It is uncertain whether the Norwegian will eventually decide to quit the Premier League, but Haaland undoubtedly possesses the raw materials necessary to emulate Ronaldo’s success at Real Madrid, a player he acknowledged admiring during his formative years.Nearly two decades were spent by Ronaldo at the highest level of football, representing Manchester United, Juventus, and Real Madrid. His extraordinary longevity and aptitude enabled him to set the record for most goals scored in men’s international football.

 

Furthermore, he is the all-time Champions League leading scorer with 38 goals, surpassing even Lionel Messi. Haaland, speaking to TV2, stated that Ronaldo’s off-the-ball play in particular had a profound effect on him.

 

Haaland recalled, “I used to watch his movements in the box on YouTube; he would make two or three moves before attacking the space he desired to occupy.” “With the center-backs, that situation is akin to a duel.” It is critical that it be precisely timed. Additionally, the post should be of high quality. “Without a quality cross, it will be impossible to score with your head.”How Cristiano maneuvers and how he has progressed as a player.

Significant Premier League alumni, including players and managers, have since followed in his footsteps to the Middle East, including Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane, and Riyad Mahrez.

 

Since his 2018 transfer to Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg, Haaland has accumulated 207 goals in 216 appearances for both his country and club.
