Erling Haaland’s Borussia Dortmund future has been the subject of constant speculation in recent weeks. With the BVB bosses unwilling to sell him this summer, the striker could leave in 2022 when he will have a release clause in his contract.

And Ruhr Nachrichten report that his release clause contains a number of performance related variables, which are likely to drive the potential fee to more than 80 million euros. The newspaper adds that the price will not rise to the 100 million euros mark.

Borussia Dortmund would likely make considerably more money if they choose to cash in on Haaland this summer. But the report adds that they are not planning on selling the 20 year old this summer, even for a mammoth transfer fee.

Haaland still has more than three years left on his Borussia Dortmund contract. So the BVB bosses are relaxed when it comes to his future. Michael Zorc and Hans-Joachim Watzke have both said in recent weeks that the Norwegian international will not be sold in the upcoming summer transfer window.

But that hasn’t stopped the rumours, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all being heavily linked with a move for Haaland. Mino Raiola helped fuel the speculation further earlier this month, when he traveled to Spain to hold talks regarding Haaland’s future with Real Madrid and Barcelona officials.

Raiola confirmed earlier this week that the Black and Yellows have been very clear on their stance on Haaland. He added that while he does not agree with the club’s stance, he does respect it.

Speculation regarding Haaland’s future will only heat up as the transfer window draws closer. But Borussia Dortmund are certain that the star striker will stay on for at least one more season.
