Reports over the weekend claimed he has a deal in place to join Manchester City

Erling Haaland's future will be decided soon. If everything goes as planned, he will communicate to Borussia Dortmund in March his intention to leave in the summer and from there he will decide based on the offers presented.

He's sought advice from his camp but at the end of the day he will make the decision himself and his priority as of now is to move to Spain. Real Madrid and Barcelona are both on the table.

Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, and his father, Alf-Inge, have done their work. They have met with Europe's biggest clubs and have three offers to study: Madrid, Barça and Manchester City.

Paris Saint-Germain could also join the race but the Norway striker is not attracted by the French league, so it's more or less ruled out pending any late twists.

The best financial offer comes from City. The English media have reported that the player's father, who played for City himself, wants his son to move to the Premier League.

But Haaland thinks differently. He likes the Spanish league and wants to live in Spain, so finances will not be the only factor.

Haaland's camp were quick to deny an agreement with City this weekend. They reiterated that no decision has been taken. Barça know they cannot compete financially but are working on convincing the player via their project.

Everything suggests a decision will be made in April, with Dortmund due around 75 million euros from the sale due to a clause in his contract.
