Clubs like French Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Barcelona, Spanish La Liga leaders Real Madrid, Premier League holders Manchester City, Chelsea and three-time European champions Manchester United have all been linked with Haaland over the past weeks and months.
Senior Borussia Dortmund officials have always maintained that their target is to keep Haaland at the club. It has been reported that the striker has a release clause in his current Borussia Dortmund contract which will become active next summer. In addition to his release clause said to be around £67m, Haaland is widely expected to ask for weekly wages that would make him one of the highest paid footballers in the world from his next club plus huge agent fees for Raiola and his father, Alfe-IngHaaland. To this effect, only the most financially stable clubs can afford his transfer.
