Borussia Dortmund would only accept to sell striker Erling Haaland in the summer of 2021 if they manage to clinch their presence in the 2021-2022 edition of the UEFA Champions League, according to a report from El Chiringuito’s Josep Pedrerol.

Apparently, Haaland wants to leave the German club this summer, but Dortmund are aware of the fact that they wouldn’t be able to explain Haaland’s departure if they don’t play Champions League football next season.

Pedrerol’s report indicates that Real Madrid, Manchester City and Barcelona are interested in the attacker, with Los Blancos having the edge because of their good, fruitful relationship with Borussia Dortmund over the last few years. Furthermore, Pedrerol also mentions that Haaland wants to play for Real Madrid.

Haaland’s €75 million release clause would not come into play this summer yet, so the clubs will have to negotiate with Dortmund.

A deal for Haaland will not be cheap given his performances, his potential and his age. If Real Madrid truly want him they better be ready to spend huge money, something they might not be keen on if they still consider Kylian Mbappe a priority.
