Taking Erling Haaland out of Borussia Dortmund this summer will cost € 180 million. That is the amount that the German club intends to obtain from the sale of the very young Norwegian striker, according to sources from the German entity would have revealed to ESPN.
According to the report, Dortmund decided to increase the selling price of Haaland.
Initially Haaland will be sold for 100 million Euros in the summer. But seeing a lot of interest in Haaland, Dortmund changed his mind.
They are now selling the striker at 180 million Euros when the transfer market opens.
Dortmund deliberately put a high price on Haaland in an attempt to rebuild their squad.
If Haaland leaves, then Dortmund will have to find a suitable replacement. Not to mention that they will be trained by new managers who have new ideas.
So Haaland’s price was intentionally increased so that Dortmund can spend a few players to strengthen their team next season.
Dortmund itself will not be concerned if Haaland does not sell.
They are ready to work with Haaland again next season if no club is willing to pay 180 million euros.
Haaland, who this year has 32 goals in 31 games, including 10 goals in 6 Champions League games, is on the agenda of all the greats in Europe, but according to his agent Mino Raiola there would only be ten teams in a position to win. its services. Among them would be both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
In the contract of the Norwegian striker there is a clause by which in 2022 he could leave Dortmund for about 75 million euros. His current club has two options: try to sell it this summer for a higher figure or keep it for another season, but lose a lot of money in the operation.
Borussia is not willing to give away its great star and will try to get the maximum possible knowledge of the large number of interested parties. However, the crisis derived from the Covid-19 pandemic has caused income to drop, which can pose a problem in their economic claims.
