Erling Haaland is dreaming of a move to the Premier League, according to reports.
The Borussia Dortmund striker has arguably been the game’s biggest sensation of the last three years.
Ever since he burst into the public eye with nine goals in a single game for Norway’s u20 side in the 2019 World Cup, the striker has been a scoring machine.
27 goals in 27 Bundesliga starts for Borussia Dortmund last season has seen Haaland linked with a move to a European heavyweight in the near future.
However, it looks likely that he will not be going anywhere until next season. He has a release clause of £63.8m which comes into play in June 2022, per Fabrizio Romano.
Bayern Munich have made their interest known, but according to Sky Germany, Haaland would rather a move to England.
Dortmund would also prefer to sell him to a Premier League or La Liga side, rather to a domestic rival.
Liverpool may be only Premier League option for Haaland
It seems inevitable that Erling Haaland will make a huge move next summer.
We are sure that every top club in Europe would love to sign him. Yet there are not too many that actually can.
This latest news that he wants to move to the Premier League enforces this belief.
Realistically, there are only four English sides that could sign Haaland. These are Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
Chelsea have signed Romelu Lukaku for big money this summer. They are already out of the race.
If Manchester City, as expected, sign Harry Kane, then they will be out too.
That would leave Liverpool and United as the only candidates.
The Red Devils have spent big on Jadon Sancho this summer, so they may not have the funds to sign Haaland next year.
In Mason Greenwood, they also have a potential world-class striker in their side, so do they really even need Haaland?
Anyway, Liverpool are probably a much more attractive prospect than United at this stage.
The Reds are the only big English side that will probably be in the market for a striker next summer.
They could be able to get a generational one for a bargain fee. It almost looks like the perfect storm.
