There's definitely been talk of this - I think the masterplan is Norweigan leagues to make loads of mistakes as a youngster, Dortmund to refine and add the competitiveness of a top league with a bit of European experience, now the big boys like City and then Real Madrid for the peak of his career in the Spanish sun.

I think the thing is with Haaland, if he had come up through the normal PL academy route he would have had a lot of what is special 'polished' out of him.

Definitely. Seems that Alfie wanted him to grow up in Norway and knew that first team football would come much sooner.
