Good Morning Fear The Wall
We are all aware that Erling Haaland’s time at BVB will be over sooner rather than later, but there might be some slim chance that sooner doesn’t have to be the end of this season. SPORT1 reporter Patrick Berger has been talking about Borussia Dortmund’s plans for Erling Haaland on his podcast, The Dortmund Week, and it’s clear that BVB haven’t given up on the possibility of keeping Haaland at the club in the future.
There are currently no talks with Haaland or Raiola. They want to sit down in the winter and start talks to know what the player wants. BVB's clear goal is to present Erling Haaland with a plan to show how he can develop here.— BVB Newsblog (@bvbnewsblog) September 21, 2021

Berger states that the club aren’t currently in talks with Haaland and his agent, Mino Raiola, but they are keen to open discussions this season, and they have every intention of presenting a case to him that would encourage him to stay.
The biggest barrier appears to be Haaland’s salary demands, which are said to be around €25m, which is well outside Borussia Dortmund’s reach. Clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Chelsea, meanwhile, will be willing to meet such astronomical wage demands. That makes it difficult for BVB to negotiate with Haaland, but if he is willing to extend his contract a little longer, that would be fantastic news for the club.
