Disregarding the various interests portrayed by big names all around Europe, Erling Haaland has opted to sign for Borussia Dortmund.
The Norway international is being landed at Signal Iduna Park for a fee of £17.1 million, along with a decent reputation he fabricated. He has registered 16 goals in just 14 appearances, operating as a forward for Red Bull Salzburg in his prime form.
Supporters expect the teenager to use Dortmund as a stepping stone to materialise a move to the Premier League in the future.
Nevertheless, the 19-year-old’s arrival at Dortmund has raised questions concerning the future of Jadon Sancho, the teenage wonderkid who scored 12 goals for the Bundesliga side in all competitions. The Englishman has earned the prominent title of being the top scoring teenager in the big five European Leagues so far.
Consequently, some big European clubs are gradually indicating interest in securing the England international’s services.
A few of those big names targeting the youngster include English League clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.
With the arrival of Haaland, Borussia Dortmund are likely to listen to offers for the former Man City youngster in the summer, as per the BBC.
However, it’s also reported that Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona also have the England international under their radar, which could prove to be a tough competition for the Premier League sides, owing to the Spaniards’ negotiation skills and financial capacity.
With the winter window clearly over the horizon, fans wouldn’t have to wait too long to see if the speculations circling the Dortmund No.7 are genuine, as those giant clubs start making their moves in January.
