was quiet in both matches. He set up Marco Reus' goal in Manchester and then had a big hand in Jude Bellingham's strike in Dortmund but he was unable to get on the scoresheet himself.
Despite not performing to the best of his ability against City, he will no doubt have many suitors across Europe.
Paul Scholes: Man United should target Erling Haaland over Harry Kane
Manchester United will be in the hunt for a new striker this summer with Edinson Cavani looking likely to depart Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the season. And two players who will be high on United's wishlist include Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland and Tottenham talisman Kane - but both would prove rather expensive.
Haaland, just 20 years old, has been tremendous since signing for Dortmund last year, having scored 49 goals in 53 games.
He seems destined for bigger and better things and he's been heavily linked with a move this summer.
But where should he go?
Following Dortmund's exit from the Champions League, Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards, Peter Schmeichel and Nico Cantor discussed that very question on CBS Sports.
The four pundits were given 45 seconds to pitch why Haaland should go to their team.
Carragher argued that he should join, Richards lobbied for a move, Schmeichel explained why he should join and Cantor said why he should join Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Of course, it descended into chaos. ????????— Champions League on CBS Sports (@UCLonCBSSports)
That is some outstanding TV. Carragher and Richards are usually reserved when they appear on Sky Sports but they are nothing like that on CBS Sports.
There has been a lot of discussion about Haaland's future but Dortmund have no plans to sell him at this current time.
“We do not have a parallel plan. We will discuss this with Erling, his father and his agent Mino Raiola,”
“We also want him to be happy to stay with us, to score goals for BVB next year with conviction. There is no alternative plan.”
Graeme Souness believes Erling Haaland is tailor-made for EPL .
Graeme Souness believes reported Liverpool target Erling Haaland is ‘tailor-made’ for Premier League football. The Reds have been named among the numerous parties across European football keen on the Borussia Dortmund goalscoring sensation. However, signing the 20-year-old Norwegian this summer would prove to be an expensive outlay and any deal may have to wait until 2022 when an affordable release clause becomes active. Amidst the drama of Liverpool’s postponed clash with Manchester United on Sunday, Souness found time on Sky Sports to suggest Haaland would be ideally suited to the English top flight.
