Erling Haaland has hinted that he may disappoint a number of top European clubs this summer after the sought-after striker said he will be “respectful” to his Borussia Dortmund contract.
The 20-year-old has been continually linked with a big-money move following another fine season in Germany, with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all reportedly interested in the Norway international.
Haaland has scored 59 goals in 57 appearances for Dortmund, including a brace in the 4-1 DFB-Pokal final win over RB Leipzig on May 13.
Having joined from Red Bull Salzburg in December 2019, Haaland’s prolific form has caught the attention of plenty of clubs. But he has now suggested he may stay put this summer.
“Well I have a contract for a couple of years, so I am respectful towards my contract,” he told Viaplay.
“I am a simple guy. When I like something I just want to have more – when I score a goal, I always chase the next goal.”
Champions League win the goal
His Champions League form is also unparalleled. He needed just 14 games in the competition to reach 20 goals – and he pinpointed qualification for next year’s tournament with Dortmund as an important marker.
