Borussia Dortmund is open for installment bids to maximize the Erling Haaland fee

3

Exclusive – Borussia Dortmund is ready to listen to alternative offers for Erling Haaland, in the hope that they will be able to make a better deal than they could achieve if a club were to fulfill his release clause in 2022.

90min understands that Dortmund expect offers for the player next year, and as it looks, they could not stop the player from leaving when the clause hits. It is understood that the Norwegian could leave for £ 64m.

However, clauses in a contract must be paid in full to be triggered. Dortmund are instead open to the prospect of a deal that would allow the clubs to pay in installments.

But to agree to an installment plan, Dortmund would require an overall deal of over £ 64 million to compensate for the fact that they did not receive the payment in a lump sum.

Dortmund’s question, however, is what power both the player and his agent, Mino Raiola, have in the process. His father Alf Inge Haaland is also strongly involved in the decision-making process.

The Bundesliga team is trying to agree on a new agreement that can remove the clause, but the prospects for that to happen look small – especially after their Champions League elimination on Wednesday night.

It all depends on where Haaland sees his future, as his release clause means he has to choose his next club from all the offers that come in.

Haaland is already aware of the alternatives that lie ahead, because in theory only a handful of clubs will be able to meet his great demands.

Bayern Munich have already made their intentions clear, while Real Madrid and Barcelona are both being kept informed of the situation.

Paris Saint-Germain are in constant contact with Raiola, and offers from England are expected with Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all showing great interest.

90min has been told by sources with knowledge of the situation that Haaland has not made a decision about his future, and this will not be made until next year.
