And Haaland, a self-confessed watch lover, is set to front a new campaign for the company later this month as his global superstardom continues to rise both on and off the pitch.
Speaking about his link-up with Breitling, Haaland said: "I’m a watch freak, so I was already a big fan of the brand.
"If you know my style, you know I always go for a clean look that can take me between my public and private life.
"The new Breitling I’m representing is exactly that: a watch that works for everything that I do. I can’t wait to introduce it next week and to finally wear it myself."

Haaland bought every member of the Dortmund squad a watch before leaving at the end of last season.
