EPL De Bruyne names Man City star that can emulate Ronaldo, Messi. Erling Haaland has been predicted by Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne to reach comparable goalscoring levels to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In what is turning out to be an exceptional first season in England, Haaland has scored 24 goals in 19 appearances.
Wednesday’s trip to Leeds United will mark the start of City’s attempt to pass Arsenal for first place in the Premier League.
De Bruyne thinks Haaland has a chance to become one of the all-time greats of the sport.
“He already has over 200 goals, so if he remains in shape and continues doing what he does, he can definitely get to 600, 700, or 800.
Erling is a top-tier striker, according to De Bruyne.
