Erling Haaland is enjoying a summer break in Greece after a more than impressive season with Borussia Dortmund.
According to reports in Greece, the Norwegian forward has been splashing out on the island of Mykonos, and has spent an incredible 500,000 euros in just six hours in a local restaurant, leaving a 30,000-euro tip for the staff.
“A lunch of around 5-6 hours in NAMMOS for the 21-year-old Norwegian forward and his friends cost 500,000 euros,” said the Greek paper in question.
“Haaland had four bottles of Cristal Vintage champagne plus food and left a tip of 30,000 euros.”
The Greek news outlet wrote another two articles related to the story to gain extra exposure and received a reply from Haaland himself on Twitter.
“I think they forgot the main courses,” wrote Haaland on Twitter.
The Greek paper responded to Haaland’s reaction with a controversial statement.
“We’ll forgive Erling Haaland for the last part of his message (fake news), it’s completely understandable,” the paper wrote.
“We’ll stay with the fact that this man, whose transfer will probably be around 150-200 million euros, spoke about us.
“This is something that most of the biggest media outlets in the world haven’t managed.”
