Erling Haaland’s future remains in the balance after Borussia Dortmund head coach Marco Rose declared “everything is on the table”.
The prolific striker’s reported €75million release clause kicks in at the end of this season, putting a host of Europe’s leading clubs on high alert.
With the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all credited with interest in the Norway international, Rose knows Dortmund have a battle on their hands to keep hold of their star man.
But the 21-year-old is yet to declare his intentions and Rose has not given up hope of retaining Haaland’s services.
“I’m in contact with Erling every day and also have a feeling for this player and this person,” he told Bild.
“Everything is on the table internally, everyone is honest with each other. He’ll make a decision at some point and the club will prepare well for it.
“We all want him to stay for sure.”

Haaland is one of the most sought-after talents in world football after scoring 80 goals in 79 appearances for Dortmund since joining the club in January 2020.
His 80 strikes have come from an expected goals (xG) return of 64, meaning he has scored 16 goals more than expected given the likelihood of the shot going in.
No player from the Bundesliga, Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A or Ligue 1 boasts such a large xG differential.
