Haaland to make transfer decision ‘shortly’ after being ‘pressed’ by Dortmund

The German club have reportedly offered the striker a bumper new contract, to stave off interest from Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Manchester City – with a £63million release clause due to come into effect this year.

Haaland, 21, hinted on Friday night that he would prefer to take his time on his decision but Borussia’s insistence will lead to a more imminent update.

“For the past six months I have chosen to say nothing out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club have started to press me to make a decision,” he told Norwegian Viaplay.

“All I want is to play football. But they are pressing me…about my future, so that means I have to make a decision soon.

“That’s what they want. It means things are going to happen now.

Haaland scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season in Friday’s 5-1 win over Freiburg, reducing Bayern Munich’s lead at the top of the Bundesliga to three points ahead of their trip to Cologne.

“We are in the middle of a difficult period, with a lot of games,” added Haaland. “I said from the start that I wanted to focus on football because that’s when I’m at my best. But I can’t do that now.
