Borussia Dortmund are reportedly set to offer a new contract to their star striker Erling Haaland. They wish to keep Haaland at the club beyond next summer. According to a report, Dortmund could double Haaland’s current salary to around €18 million per year.
Dortmund signed the striker in 2019 from Red Bull Salzburg for around €20 million. That turned out to be an absolute bargain, considering Haaland’s form since joining BVB. He has scored a staggering 70 goals and assisted 19 in 69 appearances across competitions.
His exploits have attracted the attention of a host of top clubs, including Chelsea and PSG.
Currently, Haaland has a release clause of €75 million, which will get active next summer. Considering the Norwegian current form and exploits, that is not a significant amount.
Hence, Dortmund are looking to convince the striker to sign a new lucrative deal. That would see Haaland stay with the German club for at least another season, and also delay the activation of his release clause till 2023. It is also believed that Dortmund hope to keep the player, based on their good relationship with him till now
It remains to be seen if Haaland accepts BvB’s new offer or decides to move elsewhere.
