Manchester City star Erling Haaland was asked to tender his ID following a police raid at a Costa Beach club in Spain.

The Golden Boot winner is currently on break, has taken an off-season vacation in Spain, and is enjoying some moments at Playa Padre in the Marbella resort.

The forward spent some time relaxing in Marbella, where he and his ex-footballer father Alfie own property.

It was reported that a riot broke out in Marbella, which led to the Spanish police raiding the scene.

During a raid, heavily armed police in riot gear were seen running into the beach club moments earlier as a helicopter hovered overhead.

According to the Sun, Man City striker Haaland was caught up in the raid search by the police during his vacation in Spain.

He is believed to have only been the target of normal police inquiries, rather than being charged with any crimes.

The Spanish police questioned the Norwegian forward about the riot that happened within the vicinity.

Up to 200 officers reportedly participated in the operation, according to witnesses. Pictures of heavily armed police officers interacting with bikini-clad beachgoers have become somewhat of a summertime fixture.

Police in body armour were seen rushing into the club and chatting with partygoers in a dramatic video of the police swoop.

As part of a campaign against organised crime, the Spanish police conducted a routine check on the venues.

The so-called Operation Marbella was initiated to reassure visitors that they are safe in the wake of a spate of shootings in the area, which preceded the back-to-back club raids.
