KEVIN DE BRUYNE marked Erling Haaland’s transfer to Manchester City by copying the incoming striker’s goal celebration.
It was City’s first time in action since the club confirmed the arrival of superstar Haaland.
The 21-year-old will officially become a City player on July 1 after they activated his £51million Borussia Dortmund release clause.
And nobody was happier than midfield maestro De Bruyne.
The 30-year-old marked his hat-trick goal against Wolves by copying Haaland’s famous “zen pose” celebration in front of the jubilant travelling City fans.

De Bruyne held out his arms while touching his thumbs and forefingers to imitate the move often performed by Haaland.
Although it was De Bruyne on the scoresheet this evening, fans are anticipating the Belgian to turn from scorer to provider for Haaland next season.
One wrote on Twitter: “@ErlingHaaland and @DeBruyneKev will be @premierleague top and most entertaining duo next season… brilliant catch for @ManCity.”
Another excited supporter said: “De Bruyne really hit the Haaland celebration. This is gonna be fun.”

While a third added: “The link up play between both of them is just gonna be unfair.”
De Bruyne opened the scoring at Molineux with an expert left-footed finish across Jose Sa and into the bottom corner.
Leandro Dendoncker hit back for Wolves, but two more left-footed strikes from the naturally right-footed De Bruyne restored City’s lead.
It means Pep Guardiola’s side are inching ever closer towards sealing a sixth title in the last 10 years.
