Borussia Dortmund Will Decide on Erling Haaland’s Future Soon

Among other football news and football transfers today, Borussia Dortmund will decide on Erling Haaland’s future soon. The club’s head of first-team football Sebastian Kehl has confirmed this, amid rumours Barcelona are confident of signing the striker.

So, Borussia Dortmund are planning to make a final decision on Erling Haaland’s future in “the next few weeks”.

Haaland committed to a four-and-a-half-year contract at Dortmund when signing from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.

However, since then, his stock has risen while playing for the German giants. He is all the more desirable after scoring 76 goals for Dortmund in his first 75 appearances across all competitions.

A number of top clubs across Europe are now showing keen interest in the 21-year-old including Barcelona.

And now, Sebastian Kehl has offered an update on Haaland’s situation with the winter transfer window of January finally open.

Reports say that Barca president Joan Laporta has told colleagues at Camp Nou he will bring Haaland to Camp Nou. He plans to do so in the summer, at which point his €75 million (£63m/$85m) release clause will be active.

Now, Kehl admits the ball is in Haaland’s court with regards to his next move.

Still, Dortmund’s head of first-team football remains hopeful Haaland, a prized asset, will opt to continue his development with them.

“The situation is very clear, he has the opportunity to get out [of his contract in the summer],” the Dortmund chief told a press conference.

“There are certainly a few more reasons why Haaland is in very good hands at Borussia Dortmund and why we as a club can continue to be a very good option for him.

“We will sit down with Erling and his team in the next few weeks and discuss the situation intensively. It would be good if a decision doesn’t drag on forever.”
