Erling Haaland is arguably the most in-demand player in all of football right now after his incredible performances over the past couple of years. A number of clubs around the world, including Manchester United, are believed to be interested in signing the Norwegian.
But it will not be easy to sign the striker. Not only will the competition be extremely tough for his signature but Borussia Dortmund are also expected to be looking for a massive transfer fee to part ways with their star man.
And it is not hard to see why. According to stats from Transfermarkt, Haaland has scored 53 goals and provided 14 assists in 56 appearances for the Bundesliga giants. A brilliant return for any player, especially one who is still 20 years of age.
Thus, it is safe to say that Haaland has the potential to become one of the best players on the planet in the future.

Manchester United might be able to sign Haaland for a transfer fee of around €150 million
Initially, it was believed that Borussia Dortmund would be looking for a transfer fee of around €180 million to let Haaland leave in the summer. But as reported by Eurosport, the figure might not be that high and €150 million might actually be the real figure that the Bundesliga giants are looking for this summer.
But even that is a transfer fee that very few clubs would be willing to shell out, especially in the current financial climate, despite Haaland’s undeniable potential. Thus, it might be very possible that the Norwegian remains at Borussia Dortmund for another season, especially if they manage to qualify for the Champions League. Currently they sit a point behind fourth placed Eintracht Frankfurt.
It is worth noting that Haaland is believed to have a release clause in his contract which will kick in in the summer of 2022, that is believed to be much lower than €150 million.
