Father tells Manchester United £100 million 27-goal target ‘wants to win trophies’ amid £100 million speculqtion
Manchester United target Erling Haaland wants to win trophies with Borussia Dortmund and is not thinking about a move abroad, according to his father Alf-Inge Haaland.
Dortmund won the race to sign Haaland from Salzburg last January and he has made a stellar start to his career at Signal Iduna Park, scoring 27 goals in 29 games in all competitions for the club.
However, there has been alot of speculation in the media that United are one of a number of clubs that believe Haaland would be the dream signing to make, especially as they need to add another striker to the attacl
However, amid all the speculation, Haaland senior has opened up and admitted that his son does want to win trophies, but has not intention of leaving Dortmund just yet: “When you play well, it’s only logical that big clubs knock on your door, but we’re talking about speculation here,” he told SPORT1.
“At the moment it’s not in Erling’s or my head that another club will be vying for him. We signed a long contract with Dortmund and they have a fantastic team for Erling right now. We don’t want to look any further ahead.”
Asked if the close season could bring about a move, he added: “You never know what will happen. We haven’t talked about such a step yet. I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That is his goal.
“Erling can still achieve a lot in Germany and make great progress. Moving abroad is not a priority for us.
“I sometimes think he wants to and can assert himself in any league. At the moment, he is happy in the Bundesliga and focused on Dortmund. He just wants to be a better player and doesn’t look too far ahead.”
Haaland is destined for the big time and it is only a matter of time before a big offer gets made, HE IS MADE FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE, so if he cannot win trophies at Dortmund, then there are a number of teams here that could help him achieve that.
United are one.
