Erling Haaland, a Manchester City teammate of Kevin De Bruyne's, has the potential to continue scoring 800 goals before the end of his career. Haaland, who will return to the city where he was born when the champions begin their Premier League title defense on Wednesday at Leeds, has scored 24 goals in 19 games.
Before the Argentinian left the Etihad Stadium in 2021, De Bruyne had a happy relationship with the club's record scorer, Sergio Aguero. On international duty, he has also worked with Romelu Lukaku, Gabriel Jesus, a former City teammate, and Julian Alvarez, a new World Cup winner who is currently a City player.
De Bruyne stated, "It is very difficult to compare because they are all totally different. All of them have scored 300-400 goals. Because Erling is so driven by goals, he might be able to go further."
De Bruyne added that Halaand is still young and if he takes his football very seriously, he will definitely achieve the potential.
