Salzburg Sporting director claims Liverpool as next stop for Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland-Borussia Dortmund

The Norwegian striker has taken the Bundesliga by storm since joining Dortmund earlier this year.

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is one of the brightest young prospects in Europe at the moment. 

The 20-year-old has carried his fine goal scoring from Salzburg to Dortmund, with him being currently third in the Bundesliga scoring charts this season.

Speculations have grown over his next destination ever since it was revealed that his 75m euros release clause would become active in the summer of 2022.

Now, Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund has insisted that Liverpool would be Haaland’s potential destination.

Freund said,

“That’s where [Liverpool] he will land.” “He can play for any club in the world. With his mentality, his will, with his self-confidence he can make a mark on European football in the next ten years.”

“Dortmund is one of the top 10 teams in Europe, but there are five or six better teams and that is where he will play at some point.”

 Freund also added that Bayern Munich wouldn’t be the Norwegian’s next stop due to the presence of Robert Lewandowski.

“I’m thinking of the top clubs; not necessarily Bayern Munich, because Robert Lewandowski will be playing for the next two or three years and Haaland will probably not stay in Dortmund that long.”

Haaland has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Real Madrid, while the former one is looking desperate to sign him after the failed first attempt. Los Blancos also consider Haaland as a successor to Karim Benzema.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Red Devils manager, is said to have added Haaland alongside his Dortmund team mate Jadon Sancho to the transfer wishlist.
