Haaland to Premier League wouldn’t surprise Dortmund – Zorc

If Erling Haaland leaves Borussia Dortmund this summer to join a Premier League club, it won’t come as a ‘complete surprise’ to anyone at the Bundesliga club, Dortmund director of football Michael Zorc told Sky in Germany.

Having arrived to the Signal Iduna Park from RB Salzburg back in January 2020 for a reported fee of €20 million, the Norwegian quickly became a sensation, scoring 82 goals along with contributing 23 assists in 86 matches in all competitions for the club. His contract at Dortmund has two years left to run, but it apparently contains a release clause set at €75m – undoubtedly a bargain price. However, his services also come with huge wages and agent fees, and many top clubs are believed to have been put off by the expensiveness of the entire package.

Not Manchester City, though. The defending Premier League champions have been looking for a striker for a while, and having failed to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur last year, they now see Haaland as the perfect option and are believed to be leading the race for his signature.
