As Chelsea, others chase Haaland, Dortmund discloses transfer fee set on him

The German club, Borussia Dortmund has set a mouth-watering £154m asking price for Erling Haaland this summer, ESPN reports.

Recall that Haaland has been in spectacular form since he joined from Salzburg in January 2020.

The Norway striker has netted 49 goals in as many games, including 10 in six Champions League games this season.

With Dortmund struggling to qualify for next season’s Champions League, teams like Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all on red alert.

But Dortmund will demand £154m (€180m) for the 20-year-old, one year before a £65m release clause becomes active.

If a Premier League team eventually stumps up all that money, it would become a new transfer record.

However, Dortmund believes that the asking price should see Haaland staying at the club for at least another year.
