The trio, who were all key to City’s historic Treble success, are part of a six-man shortlist alongside Martin Ødegaard and Bukayo Saka (both Arsenal) and Harry Kane (formerly of Tottenham Hotspur).
Haaland broke the single-season Premier League goalscoring record in 2022/23 by firing in 36 goals in just 35 games. His 44 goal involvements was the joint highest of all-time, equalling a record set by former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry in the 2002/03 season.
In total, he scored an amazing 52 times in all competitions as he set English football alight in his first season since joining from Borussia Dortmund.
Belgium midfielder De Bruyne once again enhanced his reputation as one of the finest players in world football as he scored 10 and assisted a remarkable 31 goals.
Should De Bruyne pick up the prize, he would become the first three-time winner having picked up back-to-back awards in 2019/20 and 2020/21.
And Stones reaffirmed his status as one of the most majestic footballers on the planet with his best season in a City shirt to date, often playing in a hybrid defence-midfield role and adding a new dimension to City’s tactical game.
The winner will be announced on 29 August when the PFA will commemorate the 50th anniversary of its awards ceremony.
The PFA awards are voted for by members from England’s 92 Premier League and Football League clubs.
Everyone at City would like to send their congratulations to Erling, Kevin and John on being shortlisted for the award.
