Erling Braut Haaland has been the topic of discussion since he left FC Red Bull Salzburg in the winter transfer window of the 19/20 season. The striker joined Borussia Dortmund on a 4-and-a-half-year deal. The black and yellow are eager to know if the Norwegian plans to stay at the Signal Iduna Park for another season.
Haaland’s Dortmund contract runs until 2024 but his 75 million euro release clause will get activated in the summer transfer window. This would allow him to join any team that is willing to pay the amount.
However, as it stands, Dortmund are interested in signing a new deal with the Norwegian. The 21-year-old is one of the expensive players in the world right now and to let him go for just 75 million would be considered a bargain for any club. But Dortmund are not prepared to admit defeat, the German outfit being prepared to negotiate a fresh deal with the Norway international if he is willing to spend another 12 months in the Bundesliga.
According to Bild, club officials are interested in negotiating with the player and his agent Mino Raiola to make him stay at the club.
