Borussia Dortmund manager Marco Rose has confirmed ‘everything is on the table’ regarding Erling Haaland’s future.
Haaland is one of the most in-demand players in recent memory this summer,
The free-scoring striker believed to have a €75m release clause that becomes active at the end of the season.
The Norwegian is already among the best strikers globally, despite being 21 years old.
This season, he has netted a staggering 16 goals in just 14 Bundesliga matches.
He has also managed three strikes in as many games in the Champions League.
The queue for Haaland will be lengthy in the summer, with Munich, Madrid and Barcelona the current favourites.
However, there has been talking that the forward could end up remaining atbeyond the end of this season, something Rose hinted at during a recent interview with Bild.
“With Erling, everything is on the table internally – everyone is honest with each other. Haaland will decide at some point – the club will prepare well for it,” he said.
In January, Haaland opened up about the club ‘pressuring’ him to decide his future, comments he has since rowed back on somewhat after CEO Michael Zorc described those claims as ‘bulls***’.
Marco Rose may begin sending scouts all around the world to take Haaland’s place.
Sule was a Chelsea target in the past, but the massive defender is looking forward to joining BVB. Dortmund has agreed to sign Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule in the summer.
Potential Clubs for Haaland:
All of the clubs listed below are viable options because they can meet his high wage demands.
Bayern Munich: Bayern Munich might be a good fit for Haaland if Robert Lewandowski leaves the Bavarian club.
Barcelona: Barca attempts to recruit the Norwegian to Camp Nou after losing Messi and Aguero due to his heart problems.
Real Madrid: It would be a massive effort to replace Karim Benzema, but Haaland can achieve what the French striker has done since 2009.
Manchester United: Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial will leave Manchester United next season. The Red Devils’ number nine position will need to be strengthened.
Manchester City: Citizens usually hope to buy the finest player in the world, but Pep Guardiola’s tactics might not be suitable for the Dortmund striker.
Which way should he go?
Only if Mbappe stays at PSG will Erling Haaland’s best option be Real Madrid, in my opinion.
Real Madrid is anticipating a busy summer transfer window in 2022, with the departures of Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale, and Luka Jovic.
Because it doesn’t appear that Dortmund will be winning the Champions League anytime soon, Haaland’s chances of collecting silverware will significantly improve.
Los Blancos may be on the verge of signing their next great star and building a team around him.
Karim Benzema’s (34) game may slow down in the following season, and he might tutor Halaand as a second striker.
