But he had to wait for his first taste of a Guardiola training session as the Cityzens started the season later than some of their Prem rivals.

Instead, the 21-year-old has settled in Manchester, including leaving fans in hysterics with his “student shop” at his local Sainsbury’s last week.

But the Norwegian finally got a chance to take on his new teammates during a strenuous session in Texas baking conditions.

Haaland beamed from ear to ear as he was put to the test for the games against Club America and his old rivals Bayern Munich.

He bounced for the ball during a workout with Ederson and worked on his strength and fitness in the gym.

And once practice was over, the striker enjoyed an ice bath alongside Oleksandr Zinchenko and Jack Grealish.

England star Grealish also had a laugh in training this week as he welcomed a new addition to the squad, Kalvin Phillips.

Before flying to America, Grealish was joined by teammates Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Kyle Walker and Phil Foden at The Bubble Room at Alderley Edge.
