was heckled by a fan as he walked through the city centre on Friday, with the supporter urging him to move to Old Trafford next season.

The Norwegian was long linked with a move to the red half of Manchester, with former boss coming very close to landing his compatriot but he opted to join Borussia Dortmund instead.

That move to Germany included a £51million release clause which became active over the summer, with City pouncing to land arguably the bargain of the transfer window.

Haaland has already made an incredible start to his career at the Etihad, netting 10 times in his first six Premier League matches – including two hat-tricks – and also scoring twice in the against Sevilla.

United, meanwhile, are lacking options up top and have predominantly been playing Marcus Rashford through the middle, though even trialled Christian Eriksen as a false nine on the opening day of the season.

Red Devils fans are clearly still pining for the one that got away, and Haaland was urged to reconsider his decision to play for the blue half of Manchester during a trip into town on Friday.

A United fan was driving through the city centre when he spotted the giant striker walking along the pavement, yelling out to him: ‘Haaland, you came to the wrong side of Manchester!’

Haaland seemed to chuckle to himself, before twice saying, ‘No, they love me here’ as he reaffirmed his commitment to City.

But the fan was not giving up, continuing to drive alongside Haaland before shouting: ‘Come to us next season, United.’

The Norwegian again seemed to smirk at the suggestion, with the fan picking up on his reaction and responding: ‘Yeah you know it, come on!’

Explaining his decision to join City over the summer, Haaland said: ‘First of all, my father, a little bit. I was born in England. I have been a City fan my whole life. I know a lot about the club.

‘In the end, [deciding to sign was down to] two things. I feel at home here and I feel I can develop and get the best out of my game at City.

‘I like the style [of play]. I like the attacking football. I like the positive vibe we have when City play football. This is what I like a lot, so I think it’s a good fit.’
