Haaland speaks out on Real Madrid and Man City rumours

Erling Haaland has responded to rumours linking the Borussia Dortmund forward with a move away from the club.

A slew of clubs are linked with the 20-year-old forward, who has scored 33 goals in all competitions this season.

Among those clubs most readily associated with Haaland are Manchester City and Real Madrid, though agent Mino Raiola claims that there are as many as 10 clubs chasing him.

Haaland, meanwhile, has been keen to play down any speculation.

Speaking ahead of Norway’s World Cup qualifying matches against Gibraltar on Wednesday, the forward was quizzed over his future.

“I still have three years of contract at Dortmund. I am not worried about that,” he said when asked about the speculation.

Over the course of the last year, Haaland has rapidly established himself as one of the rising stars of the world game. He has enjoyed extraordinary form with Dortmund, scoring 49 times in 49 matches while laying on 11 assists.

It has not only been in the Bundesliga that Haaland has impressed. His European form has also been formidable. Indeed, he has scored 10 goals in the Champions League already this season, finding the net in each of the eight games he has played and has scored doubles in his last four.

Despite the prolific form of their striker, though, BVB are ailing in the Bundesliga and presently lie fifth with eight games of the season remaining.

With a budget predicated on reaching the Champions League in each season, it is possible that Dortmund may be forced to sell in the summer should the likes of Real Madrid or Man City approach with a sizeable offer.
