Club career


Bodø/Glimt

Born in Bodø, Nordland,[3] and progressing through the youth academy of Bodø/Glimt, Hauge signed his first professional contract with the club on 12 April 2016.[4] The following day he made his senior debut in a 6–0 cup win against IF Fløya as a 64th minute substitute for Fitim Azemi. He immediately scored a hat-trick.[5] Hauge made his league debut on 23 April against Strømsgodset where he came on as a late substitute as Bodø/Glimt lost 2–0.[6] In the next league games he featured regularly, and on 8 July he scored his first top-flight goal in the 4–1 away win over IK Start, becoming Bodø/Glimt's youngest ever goalscorer in the Eliteserien.[7] In the 2016 season, he made 20 league appearances in which he scored one goal,[8] as Bodø/Glimt suffered relegation to the second-tier Norwegian First Division.[9]

In the following season, Hauge established himself as an undisputed starter as Bodø/Glimt won the second-tier championship and made their immediate return to the top-flight Eliteserien.[10] He made a significant contribution that season, scoring two goals and making 13 assists.[11] At the start of the 2018 season, Hauge again lost his starting role, and as a result was loaned to the second-tier club Aalesunds FK on 15 August 2018, halfway through the season, after 11 league appearances in which he scored no goals.[8] In Aalesund, he had only made only six league appearances by the end of the season.[8]

During the course of the following season, Hauge made it back into the starting line-up of Bodø/Glimt. On 10 November 2019, he scored both goals for his club in a 2–3 away defeat to Rosenborg.[12] That season, he played 28 league appearances in which he scored seven goals and made two assists.[8]

In the 2020 season, which had been postponed to start in June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hauge and Bodø/Glimt got off to an excellent start.[13][14] After ten match-days, the club surprisingly took a lead in the league table.[15] At that point, Hauge had already scored six goals and assisted six.[8] He also managed to impress in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers. In the narrow 2–3 away defeat to Italian club Milan, Hauge was directly involved in both his team's goals.[16] As a result, media reported that the Rossoneri were interested in signing him.[17][18]

Milan

On 1 October 2020, Hauge signed a five-year contract with Italian Serie A club Milan.[19] On 4 October 2020, he made his debut in a 30 win over Spezia.[20] On 22 October 2020, he scored his first goal for Milan in a 3–1 win at Celtic in the group stage of the Europa League.[21] On 22 November 2020, he scored his first Serie A goal in a 3–1 away win over Napoli.[22]

Personal life


On 26 October 2020, Hauge tested positive for COVID-19 amid its pandemic in Italy.[23][24]

International career


He made his national team debut on 11 October 2020 in a Nations League game against Romania.[25]
