The Man City star even cheekily told the youngster to “get yourself a new shirt” before walking off with a big smirk on his face.
In a clip captured by Norwegian outlet TV2 Sport, Haaland is approached for a photo by a group of young fans.
As he’s posing for a snap with the United fan, he covers the badge on his shirt & says: “Wait, take the picture now. Take another picture like that.”
Fans on social media said the video summed Haaland up, with one labelling the striker “friendly and savage in equal measure.”
“Ultimate s***housery from Haaland,” another user tweeted. “Proper Blue. What a legend,” a City supporter, while a second wrote: “Haaland squeezing the United badge the same way City will squeeze the life out of United next season.”

Another said: “You might not like Haaland as a player that’s your opinion but as a person you can’t hate him he’s hilarious.”
A Man United fan agreed, conceding: “Such a likeable football player. F*** everyone in this club for screwing with Ole’s plan [to sign him].”
The incident happened in Norway this week after Haaland and his team’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Cyprus.
Norway won the game 3-1 with Haaland netting a brace in the second half to secure three points for his country, especially after their hopes of qualifying for next year’s tournament were dented after conceding two late goals in a 2-1 defeat to Scotland on Saturday.
Haaland was booed by a section of the home fans in that game, but they were quiet during Tuesday’s victory over the Cypriots.
