'Everything is on the table' – Erling Haaland locked in talks with Dortmund as Man City lead transfer race for striker

February 9, 2022

ERLING HAALAND'S future remains up in the air after Borussia Dortmund manager Marco Rose revealed that 'everything is on the table'.

Norway international Haaland is one of world football’s hottest properties as he has scored a startling 80 goals in just 79 appearances for the Bundesliga side.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City or Real Madrid in recent weeks.

And Rose, who took over as Dortmund head coach last summer, has refused to rule anything out about where the 21-year-old will end up.

Speaking to Bild, he said: "With Erling, everything is on the table internally – everyone is honest with each other.

"Haaland will make a decision at some point – the club will prepare well for it."

Last week, it was reported that Manchester United are out of the race to sign Haaland.

Man City and Real Madrid are thought to be the frontrunners to acquire the Dortmund superstar.

City could easily afford his £64million release clause.

The Premier League champions also know the chance to work with manager Pep Guardiola is a strong factor in their favour.

Haaland wants to win trophies and Man City have shown in recent years they are prolific in adding silverware to their cabinet.

Since Guardiola arrived in 2016, the club have won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and four League Cups.

They also finished runners-up in last season's Champions League, losing to Chelsea in the final.

Thomas Tuchel's Blues are another team thought to be interested in signing Haaland in the summer.

Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich could also be an option if they lose talisman Robert Lewandowski.

And Paris Saint-Germain are set to be in the market for a new hitman when Kylian Mbappe heads to Madrid, but it’s thought Ligue 1 isn’t high on Haaland’s agenda.

Haaland has netted 23 times in 20 matches so far this season, inspiring Dortmund to second in the Bundesliga table.

However, their title ambitions suffered a major blow at the weekend as they were beaten 5-2 at home by Bayer Leverkusen.
