Two factors that will sway Erling Haaland’s decision while choosing his new club

One of the most exciting prospects of the upcoming summer transfer window is the potential next destination for Erling Braut Haaland.

The Norwegian forward has made a reputation for himself for being one of the most clinical strikers in world football at the moment, ever since he broke out into the global football scene.


The journey so far

After breaking out in the Norwegian first division, Haaland impressed for Red Bull Salzburg with some extraordinary numbers in the league and in Europe – a stint which attracted the attention of one of the biggest clubs in the world in Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland has kept up his rich vein of form, currently being the second top scorer in the Bundesliga, only behind Robert Lewandowski – a feat that the 20-year-old can be proud of.

His incredible form for Dortmund has ensured that there will be a posse of clubs looking to secure his signature when the transfer window opens in the season break.

There are a lot of clubs that have been reportedly interested in acquiring the services of Haaland according to a new report from ESPN’s Mark Ogden – the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all want Haaland to play in their colours next season.

Two important factors while deciding his next club

But Haaland’s decision would not be persuaded by money and money alone, as the Norwegian will look for the most enticing challenge and the most compelling story – in other words, Haaland will look for the club that needs him the most and not necessarily one which wants him the most.

There is no doubt that the club which gets one of the most sought after footballers in the world in Haaland is a lucky one, as the sky’s the limit for the young and ambitious forward – who wants to leave a lasting impression at his new destination and be the club’s talisman-like he wants to.
