Football’s big names are all craving for Erling Haaland. All of the football entrepreneurs are aware of his situation, and the Norwegian is a player who doesn’t often fall short.
Borussia Dortmund were determined to keep hold of him last summer, turning away any offer that arrived, but the circumstance changed on September 1. From next summer, a 75 million euro release clause has been reported to come into play, and it has never been denied by any of the parties involved.
Haaland is a player who surprises every week with an outstanding performance. His raw physical power and his undeniable goalscoring ability makes him a target for every club looking to dominate Europe. So far, he himself has stayed quiet, looking to respect Dortmund as much as possible.
But the 21-year-old knows that the time to leave is approaching. Mino Raiola is on the lookout for a big contract, and Haaland wants to be the point of reference wherever he goes. He wants to lead his next team, but to also be supported by other good players.
The Fight For Haaland Heats Up: His Release Clause And Demands
With 68 goals in 67 appearances for Dortmund, Haaland has high ambitions, and Dortmund are already starting to accept that his departure is inevitable.
“It will be hard to keep him,” admitted Joachim Watzke. “We’ll do everything we can.”
Mino Raiola is looking for a new club, but the player’s demands have made his job more complicated.
Bayern Munich are interested, but that might well just be a tactic and not a likely destination. Chelsea spoke with Raiola, but Dortmund declined to talk and so they signed Romelu Lukaku. Barcelona can’t. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are keeping a close eye on the situation.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that PSG made an approach, but Haaland has asked for an amount close to 50 million euros per season.
Real Madrid have been focusing more on Kylian Mbappe, whom they want next summer. Florentino Perez has dreamt of having the two forwards together in Madrid.
