It seems clear that Erling Haaland will leave Borussia Dortmund sooner rather than later, as he would be able to command a salary that is almost as high as Dortmund's entire wage cap. What remains to be seen is when he will make the move to a new team. This transfer looks like happening next summer, with the player suggesting that he will remain at Dortmund for the 2021-22 campaign.
The young striker has finally broken his silence on rumours about a move. Talking from a pre-season training camp, he said: "Prior to yesterday, I hadn't spoken to my agent for a whole month. There's your answer. I hope that they [reports of a €175 million price tag] are just rumours, because it's too much money for one player".
The Norwegian forward went even further: "Firstly, I have three years left on my contract. I'm enjoying my time here. Of course, the trophy [last season's German cup] was important because I want to win silverware".
Everything seems to suggest that Haaland will remain at Borussia Dortmund for another season. For a transfer to take place this summer, Dortmund would ask for around 175 million euros. If he waits one more year, however, a clause would become activated in his contract that would allow him to leave for 75 million euros.
