Haaland and Grealish became pals after the Norwegian striker joined Manchester City last summer.
The pair had outstanding seasons for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, helping them win the Premier League and the League Cup.
Haaland admitted earlier this year that Grealish is his best football friend, and he previously exclaimed, “I love you, you know that?” past season during a live televised interview with the winger.
Grealish has also revealed that their friendship has helped him both on and off the field.
‘We’ve got a wonderful relationship,’ he recently said. We come into training together a lot because we live in the same building and I’ve helped him a few times.
‘When you have a relationship like that off the pitch, it makes it that more simpler on the pitch.’
Grealish and Haaland were also at the center of Man City’s four-day celebrations after winning the Champions League for the first time and completing the Treble.
Haaland was instrumental in City’s success last season, scoring 52 goals in all competitions in his rookie season.
