It’s likely to be 600, 700 or 800.
Erling Braut Haaland’s teammate Kevin De Bruyne believes there is hardly a limit to the number of goals a Norwegian can score during his career.
The 22-year-old from Jæren has already scored 159 goals in his professional football career according to Transfermarkt, and Belgian De Bruyne believes the goals will continue to flow for his Manchester City teammate.

He doesn’t want to compare the Norway star to the other strikers he’s played with, but it’s clear Haaland is up there at the top of the world.
Erling is a great striker. But it’s hard to compare tips because they’re so different. They play in the same position, but some of them are physical players, some are fast and they all score goals for fun. Erling hasn’t gotten there yet since he was so young, but most others have scored 300 or 400 goals. Erling is so obsessed with goals, says De Bruyne according to the Manchester Evening News, that he could probably do them better than that.
Passes by other Norwegians
According to Transfermarkt, Ole Gunnar Solskjær finishes with 160 career goals, while Tore André Flo and John Carew both stop at 161. Steffen Iversen is slightly ahead with 170 career goals.
If Haaland continues to aim at the target earlier this fall, he will likely pass all of the above-mentioned players over the latter half of the season.
And if De Bruyne is to be believed, this is just the beginning…
