“Several elite clubs are said to be interested in the services of Erling Haaland despite his contract with Dortmund not expiring until 2024. The Norwegian is on scintillating form this season and many fans think he would be worth every penny if their club decides to splash out. After the economic constraints imposed by the pandemic last season, it will be interesting to see if clubs are willing to part with such a large amount of money.”
