“It is a decision for the club to make a good sign for the future. He can come for many, many years hopefully and I am pretty sure he will adapt perfectly to our team but for next season,” Guardiola told Sky Sports
“I’m excited in my job but of course, the players make you a good manager. [Haaland] is an incredible young talent, perfect age. I am pretty sure we are going to help him settle as best possible.”
