Haaland set to make a decision soon as Dortmund get ready to lose him

Sun 08 May 2022 | 16:40

Borussia Dortmund are expecting to lose Erling Haaland at the conclusion of the season, with his verdict due in the coming days.

As

Borussia Dortmund

prepares to lose its top scorer, Erling Haaland appears to be on the verge of announcing his departure. 

Dortmund's Sebastian Kehl, who will take over as sports director from his player licensing post after the season, stated on Sunday that the

Bundesliga

club was expecting the 21-year-old to go. 

Manchester City are said to be in pole position to recruit the Norway international, who joined Dortmund in late December 2019 after impressing at Salzburg.

"

I think we will have clarity next week. I wouldn't be surprised if he moves on in the end,"

Kehl told German broadcaster Sport1.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been touted with a transfer for Haaland, although the possibility of a move to LaLiga has dimmed in recent months. 

Haaland's father, Alf-Inge, was a Man City player, and the Dortmund forward was born in Leeds, so a return to England may be appealing. 

The City boss, Pep Guardiola, has consistently refused to explore the possibility of luring in Haaland. 

With City's chances of winning the

Champions League

title this season looking slim, Guardiola will need to sign a striker with Haaland's credentials.

Dortmund are set to sign Salzburg's Karim Adeyemi as Haaland's successor, with Kehl anticipating activity in that direction this week. 

Despite being sidelined by injury this season, Haaland has scored 28 goals in 29 outings for Dortmund in all competitions. In his first full season in Germany, he scored 41 goals in 41 games.
