Erling Haaland apparently has no plans to leave Borussia Dortmund anytime soon, admitting he and the club have goals to achieve together.

As soon as Borussia Dortmund announced the signing of Erling Haaland this past winter, the question was where to next for the striker.

Rumor has it he chose Dortmund over one time favorites for his signature Manchester United because of the German’s acceptance of a buyout clause in his contract.

After demonstrating immediately that the step up from the Austrian top flight, to the German, was no hindrance to his ability the stories and rumors of another move have only intensified.

The likes of Real Madrid have been touted around as a likely destination, as well as the likes of Juventus, PSG, and of course United.

But after being given the honor of wearing the Dortmund number nine, once worn by the likes of Robert Lewandowski he appears set to stay in Borussia a little while longer.

Speaking to Bild, he insists he and the club have big plans.

He said:

“I have a long-term contract here until 2024. In any case, it is my big goal to win BVB the title and to celebrate fantastic successes with our fans.” 

“We have the quality to become champions.”

The goal-scoring sensation is quite the phenomenon, you might find some of his stats hard to believe.
