Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland revealed that the club is pressurizing him into making a decision about his future as it is becoming a distraction. Haaland scored a brace in their 5-1 win over Freiburg and is contracted with the club until the summer of 2024. The striker is reported to have a release clause of £64m that will come into effect this summer.
“The last six months, I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for Borussia Dortmund,” Erling Haaland said. “But now the club has started to pressure me into making a decision, but all I want to do is to play football. But they press me to make a decision now about my future. So that means I have to make a decision soon. I have said from the beginning that I want to focus on football because that is when I am at my best, not when other things come into my mind.”
“I would be very surprised if he stayed at Dortmund past this summer because of this release clause, and because of the kind of clubs who are after him,” Kaveh Solhekol said. “I think it’s going to be almost impossible for him to say no to some of these clubs who are going to put offers in front of him. If you’re talking about seeing Haaland in the Premier League, Manchester City is in pole position. We know they’ve been looking for an out-and-out striker for a long time, even though they don’t really need one.”
