Haaland breaks silence on future amid Man United and Man City transfer interest

In-demand striker Erling Haaland insists he has no problem with Borussia Dortmund saying he won’t be sold this summer.

The Norwegian has been linked with a move from the Bundesliga this summer, with Manchester United and Manchester City both interested in the 20-year-old.

Haaland has scored 57 goals in 59 games for Dortmund and his goalscoring exploits have put Europe’s grandest clubs on red alert, but Dortmund’s hand has been strengthened after they qualified for next season’s Champions League after a strong end to this campaign.

Earlier this month Dortmund’s chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said ‘Haaland will remsain a BVB player next year’. That is a stance the player himself has no problem with and he will let the club decide his future.

“Well, I have a contract for a couple more years, so I am respectful towards my contract,” he told Norwegian broadcaster NENT.

Haaland is understood to have a release clause in his contract that starts in 2022, which would allow him to leave the club for €75million next summer.

Having made sure of a return to the Champions League and won the DFB Pokal earlier this month, he is looking forward to more goals and trophies next season.

“Like I have said before, I am a big fan of the Champions League – and I think everybody knows that. It was a relief to secure that spot. It was really important,” he said.

“I am a simple guy. When I like something I just want to have more. Like I have said before, when I score a goal, I always chase the next goal. I have big dreams.

“I just won my first major trophy and it was a great feeling, so I want to win trophies.”
