Erling Haarland is a celebrated football star in Europe for which the big clubs vie. After a defeat in the Champions League, the striker’s whereabouts at Borussia Dortmund is questionable, according to his advisor.
The dream of the Champions League round of 16 for BVB has burst. Coach’s Marco Rose team lost 3-1 to Sporting Lisbon. The international press especially missed Erling Haarland at the early final. “No champions without Haaland” write press reviews from Spain.
“He really likes his home in Spain”
The center forward has been under contract with BVB since January 2020 and is celebrated as a goal machine. How long he will play for the club is unclear. In Spain in particular, there are frequent reports of the alleged interest of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in Haarland.
On Wednesday, Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola told Deportes Cuatro: “Haaland likes Spain, he likes his home in Spain very much. But it’s too early to say where he’ll play next year. “ Raiola did not want to comment on the alleged interest of Real and Barca: “It is still too early to talk about where he will play next year. That would also not be right”.

Time to think about until the winter break
The advisor’s statement will give BVB fans and shareholders something to think about, as Haarland is celebrated as a “goal machine”. The 21-year-old can be bought from his current contract after the release clause of around 75 million euros. According to a report from Sky, the striker’s annual salary is to be doubled in order to convince him to stay. Haaland currently earns an estimated eight to nine million euros, so it should be 16 to 18 million euros in the future.
Most recently it was decided that on the one hand Borussia Dortmund and on the other hand Haaland with its advisors byou want to give time during the winter break. Only then will concrete talks about the future of the young Norwegian from summer 2022 be held.
Injured since October
Haaland is currently suffering from a thigh injury. He has been battling muscular problems for over a month and has missed a few games as a result. It seems that he will not be on the pitch for BVB in the coming weeks either, his hip flexor injury puts him out of action. Accordingly, he will miss the Bundesliga hit on December 4th against FC Bayern Munich.
With only 14 field players, FC Bayern Munich traveled to the Champions League away game at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday evening.
