Erling Haaland is the football world at your feet. There is lively speculation across Europe as to which club the BVB goalscorer will switch to next. His father Alf-Inge explains that the 20-year-old first wants to take the next steps in black and yellow.
Erling Haaland has been storming for BVB since the beginning of 2020. In Dortmund, the 20-year-old center forward signed a long-term contract for four and a half years. Nevertheless, there have been rumors of change about the center forward since his arrival.
The reason is obvious: Haaland hits and hits and hits. Already on his debut for black and yellow he turned the game in Augsburg with a three-pack as a joker. 29 games, 27 goals and six assists is his impressive record for BVB.
“He’s super happy there. It was a right and important step for Erling.”

Father Alf-Inge Haaland, who used to be an attacker himself (among others at Man City), also acts as an advisor to his son. As such, he once again spoke out in public about his son’s future. Dreams of Real Madrid, Liverpool or Manchester? For Erling Haaland, the here and now counts, his father assures: “‘At the moment it is neither in Erlings nor in my head that another club will vie for him. We have signed a long contract with Dortmund and BVB has a fantastic one Team for Erling right now. We don’t want to look any further. “
So far, Haaland’s career has gone as planned on the drawing board. First Salzburg, then Dortmund – and then to one of the biggest world clubs? “We haven’t talked about such a step so far,” assures Alf-Inge Haaland. Rather, the focus is on current successes with BVB: “I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That is his goal. Erling can still achieve a lot in Germany and make great progress. Abroad is not a priority for us. “
Haaland Senior knows exactly: his son doesn’t need to rush anything and can develop perfectly at BVB. With his insane goalscoring rate and his only 20 years, Haaland will still be one of the most sought-after players on the transfer market in one, two or three years. Until then, the ambitious Norwegian wants to adorn himself with a few titles in black and yellow.
The fact that Haaland will stay in Dortmund until the end of the contract or even extend it again should be rather utopian. You should be aware of this at Borussia. And Alf-Inge Haaland also leaves room for speculation: “You never know what will happen.”
That’s why you should enjoy your time with Haaland in Dortmund – as long as it is ticking.
