Erling Haaland: I’m not thinking about leaving Dortmund

Erling Haaland has emerged as one of football’s most prolific young strikers since he joined Borussia Dortmund in January.

The 19-year-old, a €20m signing from Red Bull Salzburg in January, has scored 16 goals in 17 appearances for BVB.

And his form hasn’t gone unnoticed, with Europe’s elite, including Real Madrid, setting their sights on him.

However, Haaland has revealed he has no plans of leaving the Westfalenstadion just yet.

In an interview with WAZ, Haaland said his mind is only on succeeding with Dortmund.

“Dortmund is one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said Haaland. “I signed a long-term contract here and just got here.

“That’s why I don’t think too much about leaving the club. I don’t think too much about the future, I live in the present and decide what is best for my career here and now.”

The Norway international has seen Dortmund fall away from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, and wants to change that.

He said: “I want to achieve something with Borussia, not always be only second, but also win titles if possible.

“We have to set goals, we want to attack and score as many goals as possible.

“Of course as a striker, I want to contribute.”

The Transfermarkt site values Haaland at €72m, more than three times what Dortmund paid for him last winter.

But the Germans are not ready to cash in and Haaland is content to stick around and help them win silverware.
