Erling Haaland is enjoying his time off after a successful season with Manchester City despite his country, Norway, missing out on Euro 2024 participation.

In his second season in the Premier League, Haaland won the title and Golden Boot again, as Pep Guardiola's side won their fourth consecutive trophy, a record in English football.

Despite winning the top scorer award again, the striker was seen by many fans as underwhelming by his own standards due to a drop in performances and a number of chances missed.

Regardless, he is having a free summer after his fellow Premier League compatriot and Arsenal captain, Martin Odegaard, failed to lead Norway to the European Championship this year.

Haaland vacations after missing Euro 2024

Euro 2024 kicks off later tonight with host nation, Germany, taking on Scotland, who qualified from the same group as Norway, in the opening game.

The 23-year-old is clearly not deterred by his country's failure to feature at a major tournament since 2000. Instead, Haaland has been spotted on vacation in different locations.

According to Sun Sport, the goal machine was spotted on a yacht vacation in Cannes, France. He was also seen shooting balls around before a jet ski ride.

This comes days after he was seen taking over the DJ decks and dancing at a party in Marbella, Spain.

Haaland comments on his future

There are rumours about the striker's future at the Etihad Stadium, with some reports suggesting he could leave next summer and join Real Madrid, but he has downplayed this.

"I've had two fantastic years and have three years left. That's really all I can say. That's all I can say, what I just said," he told TV2.

The Spanish giants signed Kylian Mbappe this season, and a move for the former Borussia Dortmund forward is unlikely.

Hazard snubs Haaland as Norway's best player

Sports Brief also previously reported on Eden Hazard naming Martin Odegaard as Norway's best player when asked to name the top performer from each European country.

The Chelsea legend, who spent time with Odegaard at Real Madrid, picked the Arsenal captain, who could not lead their country to Euro 2024 alongside Erling Haaland.
