The 22-year-old arrived at the Etihad following his £51million blockbuster transfer from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

The Norway international scored 62 goals in 67 Bundesliga appearances and will now be looking to cause similar damage in the English Premier League.

Haaland is regarded as one of the hottest properties in world football, but the man himself believes there is still room for improvement.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's clash against the Irons, he told Sky Sports: "For me as a striker, it was a bit like how I could deliver on the pitch and it was about my feeling, how I can deliver in the best possible way and developing more because I am still only 22.

"The team here is going to be really good. I can get better at everything. "In the end it about how your feeling is. It's like a lot of things, if you want a new job, how you feel and this is how I felt." After two years in the Austrian Bundesliga with Red Bull Salzburg and three years in Germany with BVB, the player will now challenge himself in arguably the world's toughest competition.

Haaland is relishing the opportunity, adding: "I am looking forward to watching the stadiums and feeling the atmosphere and the rivalry.

"Us against them, the fans against each other, this is something I like a lot. Also the feeling of the game. "It is going to be tough for sure and this is the charming thing about the Premier League, it's a beautiful hard competition and that is why it is the most popular league in the world."
