A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from journalist Graham Smyth that has quote-tweeted a post showing Erling Braut Haaland exchanging shirts and having a laugh with Stuart Dallas.
Haaland scored twice for Norway as his side thrashed Northern Ireland 5-1, but after the game, the Borussia Dortmund striker was full of praise for Dallas.
This video has gone down well, and given Haaland’s connections to Leeds, it has got many Whites fans dreaming.
Do you think Leeds could sign Haaland?
No, not a chance
Yes, one day maybe
Two good years in the premier. He’s ours ALAW

Swear I saw him say “tell radz to get a bid in for me”. Could be wrong though.

The 20-year-old striker is the son of former Leeds player Alf-Inge Haaland and was born in Leeds; he also claimed in an interview in 2017 that he wants to play in the Premier League with the Whites.
However, his career has taken a different path, and he now plays for Dortmund, where he has scored a staggering 16 goals in just 18 games.
His international record is also pretty good as he has banged in three in just four games for Norway.
One of his goals against Northern Ireland was a stunning strike that rocketed into the corner of the net, but it was this footage of him and Dallas that got these Leeds fans talking.
Nice moment that. Must be Leeds Leeds Leeds ?? MOT

Given that Haaland is valued at £64.8m by Transfermarkt and only recently joined Dortmund in January 2020, it could be unlikely that he will be moving to Elland Road anytime soon having worked his way to the top level of European football, but it is good to see that some of these Leeds fans are ambitious and want to sign him.
However, we think they should focus on Saturday as the Whites are set to get their Premier League campaign underway at Anfield.
