Erling Braut Haaland’s stunning form since arriving at Borussia Dortmund will surely have some supporters worried about the prospect of losing the Norwegian star in the near future.
Notoriously a selling club, Borussia Dortmund will be well aware that the young striker is unlikely to play out his best days in the famous black and yellow shirt, so much so, the player has a release clause in his contract that becomes active as early as next season.
But should the Bundesliga heavyweights be worried about the prospect of potential suitors trying to come in and poach a deal in the near future? They should be. Combing his time with Red Bull Salzburg and Dortmund, he has 40 goals to his name in all competitions this season.
Since arriving in Germany, he has already notched nine league goals and one more in the DFB Pokal. While it’s easy to say that the youngster is enjoying some kind of purple patch, he has shown no signs of slowing down as he adapts to Bundesliga football with ease.
While those around him appear keen to put his development first, Dortmund may need to start winning some major silverware if they want to convince the striker to break the trend of young stars leaving the club as they approach the peak of their powers. While they may no longer be the favourites for the Bundesliga, with sportsbetting24, you can back Lucien Favre’s men to finally relinquish Bayern Munich’s stranglehold on the German top flight.
Manchester United and Italian giants Juventus were among the big hitters to be linked with a move to sign Haaland before his eventual switch to Dortmund materialised and the decision not to pursue him further continues to look like a sizeable mistake with every goal that he scores for the German side.
