Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Braut Haaland is reportedly keen to join either Real Madrid or Barcelona this summer, with the Norwegian not currently interested in a move to the Premier League.
The 21-year-old will have a £63m release clause in his BVB contract this summer, and a number of clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are said to be keen to sign him.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the Premier League does not currently appeal to the Norway international, who would rather stay in the Bundesliga or move to one of Spain’s biggest two clubs.
“He doesn’t like Premier League too much. It is not in his dreams. It is not the perfect league at the moment. He prefers La Liga – he likes Liga a lot. So, I think in his thoughts, La Liga is the perfect tournament, now, to play in. Or Bundesliga, where he is currently playing,” Di Marzio told Wettfreunde.
“So it is not sure that he’ll leave in the summer. Borussia Dortmund thinks that for his career, another year there should be the right step. I don’t know what Mino Raiola thinks about it.
“I think Raiola wants to get him out of Borussia Dortmund because after two years there it is important for him to have another challenge. So I think he will try to find the right solution for him.”
Haaland, who has scored 21 goals and registered six assists in 18 appearances at club level this season, has said that Dortmund are currently pressuring him to make a decision on his future.
