Haaland focused on Dortmund project despite Madrid links


Erling Haaland has been in the news since his move to Borussia Dortmund in the winter window after leaving Red Bull Bull Salzburg.

Real Madrid and Manchester United, who lost the race to sign him in January have been heavily linked with the 19-year-old but Zinedine Zidane’s side look the favourites to land him.

The player has been instrumental for Lucien Favre’s side leading the charge as they try to battle Bayern Munich for the German Bundesliga title. He scored 12 goals in his first 11 appearances and is look to push them for the battle once more.

Haaland, who has since then been linked heavily with the Los Blancos has however said that his only focus has been his performances for Dortmund.

“I focus on this, not on the attention that is towards me,” he told Sky Sport on Tuesday.

“I think about doing my job, which is the thing I love most. My focus is on this.”


The rumours has refused to go down even after his latest comments with former Real Madrid assistant coach Jose Morais claiming that the teenager has shown glimpses that he could be a success at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I think [Haaland] is a great player. He’s also one of the young players with very great quality. His finishing qualities are unbelievable,” Morais told Stats Perform.

“Doing what he did in this short period for Dortmund and creating the impact that he created. I think that it is never too soon for a quality player to go to a club like Real Madrid.

“The higher the quality of player, the more the possibilities to succeed exist in a club like Real Madrid. You have a lot of competition in the club because you only have good players there, high-level players.

“Benzema is a fantastic player, a goalscorer, he has the quality that he has playing for Madrid all these years. I think Haaland is definitely a good option to replace a striker like him.

“Probably in the style of Cristiano, Mbappe would also be a player that could have some similarities in the strength and speed, and capacity of playing.”
