Haaland impressed the top clubs
Norwegian star Erling Haaland promises to be the center of attention in the transfer market as soon as life returns to normal. The 19-year-old striker this season broke all kinds of records and impressed the top clubs in Europe with his goals and form. Borussia Dortmund jumped on a chance to sign it from RB Salzburg in January for only 20 million euros, and now other big clubs are circling. Dortmund has a story when it comes to identifying young talents. They paid six million euros to pick up Jadon Sancho from Manchester City and could sell it more than ten times.
Giovanni Reyna is their last hot prospect while they sold his compatriot Christian Pulisic to Chelsea for 64 million euros in January 2019. As for Haaland, its quality is undeniable. This season, he scored 40 goals in 33 games for Salzburg and Dortmund, including ten in the Champions League.
He surprises everyone
The Norway international is fourth in the race for the European Golden Boot Award behind Ciro Immobile, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo. His name first caught his eye last summer when he scored nine goals in one game against Honduras during the Under-20 World Cup. Just a few months later, he caused severe damage to PSG at the knockout stage in the Champions League. Clubs such as Real Madrid will be able to pay Haaland the point of releasing 75 million euros this summer. Although his agent Mino Raiola did not say that he had contact with Los Blancos, he got interested in Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. “I don’t think he will leave Dortmund, but Real Madrid has not yet called me to find out how he behaves, but Erling surprises everyone, including himself, and we can’t say what will happen,” Raiola admitted recently.
