Haaland harbours ambitions of playing in all of Europe’s top leagues as transfer race hots up

Erling Haaland is understood to harbour ambitions of playing in all of Europe’s top leagues as the Borussia Dortmund forward is courted by the world’s biggest clubs.

Haaland has emerged as the most in-demand star in world football following his stunning performances for the Bundesliga side, scoring 45 goals in just 46 appearances across all competitions following his arrival from Red Bull Salzburg.

The Norway international has a release clause in his contract of €75m that will become active in 2022, though there are suggestions that Dortmund could look to cash in on the forward this summer, given the financial impact of the pandemic and with the club in danger of missing out on qualification to the Champions League.

Haaland’s potential availability has alerted the superpowers of the game with each of Europe’s elite reportedly monitoring his situation, interest in the star thought to be high from the Premier League with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United all keen on his signature.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus have also been credited with interest, leaving Haaland with a decision to make with the star having the enviable choice of almost any leading side in the game.

According to ESPN, Haaland hold ambitions of playing in each of Europe’s major leagues which offers an intrigue over his next destination, with the Norwegian’s desire to take on numerous challenges providing a dilemma to the side who win the initial race for his signature.

Bayern Munich and Manchester City, arguably the two most attractive options given their ready-made ability to compete for major trophies, are unlikely to be enamoured with their star signing’s ambition to move on after only a relatively short period with the side.

Such a situation could open up the prospect of less fancied sides winning the race, however, those content to simply be part of Haaland’s globe-trotting journey across Europe’s major leagues providing them with added appeal in discussions this summer.

Dortmund will be able to demand an astronomical fee for one of world football’s most exciting talents this summer and Haaland’s future looks set to dominate the transfer talk in the coming months.
