Borussia Dortmund are warming to the exit of Liverpool transfer target Erling Haaland next year, with the Bundesliga outfit braced to receive bids for the Norway striker, per 90min.
BVB are loath to see Haaland leave the Westfalenstadion, but are unprotected to his likely departure. As they can do little to stop the 21-year-old going due to a £64m release clause.
But as the fee must be paid in full, Borussia Dortmund are now ready to listen to offers that would bank them a bigger sum overall yet take payment via a series of instalments instead.
Liverpool, Manchester United, Man City and Chelsea are all showing keen interest in a deal for Haaland. Barcelona and Real Madrid have also asked to be kept informed of all updates.
Paris Saint-Germain, likewise, are in constant contact with the striker’s agent, Mino Raiola. While Bayern Munich have made their intentions clear, but President Uli Hoeness admitted recently, via Sport1, that the Bundesliga powerhouse have made no concrete decisions yet.
Borussia Dortmund are still working to convince Haaland to ignore all transfer interest and sign a new contract, as well. They hope to also remove his release clause, but are not close.
Haaland is therefore likely to have the final say on where he plays his football next season. The £132k-a-week striker is yet to make that call, and will not decide until next year, either.
Borussia Dortmund stance on Haaland could aid Liverpool in transfer war
English clubs are likely to make Borussia Dortmund offers for Haaland, and their willingness to sell through instalments could swing the door open for Liverpool to win the bidding war.
Any club faces paying a fortune to have Haaland in their ranks next year. AS recently noted he is demanding a €25m five-year contract (£400k-a/w) after tax. Dortmund would also like to make €100m (£84m) through his exit, potentially now spread over a number of years.
So, if Borussia Dortmund are willing to accept a staggered payment for Haaland, Liverpool could contend for his transfer. Adding a forward with 13 goals in 10 games to their ranks.
