The 22-year-old Norwegian admits that winning trophies is one of his main goals as he has only won one German trophy from his time at Dortmund.

And Haaland’s biggest goal is the Champions League – his favorite competition.

When asked about his goals during his time at City, the £51.4million ace said: “I want to develop as a footballer, that’s one of the most important things.

“For me it’s about performing well as a team, playing well with your teammates.

“I want to develop, win games, win trophies and have a good time. I love the Champions League, I have to say that.

“Everyone knows that and (winning it) is a big dream for me.”

As is well known, Haaland has the anthem of the competition as an alarm clock on his mobile phone.

He told Telmundo Deportes: “When I wake up every morning I listen to this song, it’s my favorite competition. I’ve always loved it, so it’s true, yes.”

Haaland’s City start has hit him 12 times in his first seven games – including two in the European opener in Seville last week.

Some believe he will soon be dubbed the best player in the world.

But Haaland insists it’s club honors that drive him.

He added: “It’s every player’s dream to be the best, but I don’t think about that.

HAAL TO PLAY

“Just think about what’s next and try to get a little bit better every day. This is important. Performing as a team and then other things come.”

Dortmund did everything they could to persuade Haaland to stay last season.

He’s also had interest from Real Madrid and has been tempted by Spain – but insists he’s happy with his choice.

Haaland said: “It’s a bit different, of course there are two great leagues, this one and the German league.

“The Premier League has a bit more pace, physically – it’s a beautiful league and I’m enjoying every single second of it. I’ve followed the Premier League my whole life.

“Because I’ve always been watching, it’s special for me to be here. I like that there are so many good teams.

“Every single game is so difficult and you never know how a game is going to be. There are so many top teams, I like that too.”
