Kevin De Bruyne believes Erling Haaland at Manchester City will help him get more assists.

De Bruyne believes his chance creation has remained consistent but his Manchester City teammates haven’t been converting the chances, a problem Haaland will solve at Manchester City.

Manchester City signed the Norway international for £51million and De Bruyne believes Haaland is a ‘top striker’ that can score ’20-25 goals per season’.

Speaking to HLN, De Bruyne said: “Erling Haaland is a top striker. His move should help us to grow as a team. 

“Everybody expects a lot. They’ve always been looking for a number 9, but I think it’ll be good to have that striker that maybe scores 20-25 goals a season.”

When asked whether Haaland could help up his assists, De Bruyne said: “Maybe (Haaland’s arrival might help me too). There have been years that I have more assists (than this season). 

“But my chance creation and other things have remained consistent. Numbers are a part of football but they never tell you the full story.”
