I am focused on Dortmund – Haaland
Borussia Dortmund striker Braut Erling Haaland insists that he is fully focused on the Bundesliga club.
The-19-year old has enjoyed a sensational campaign with a staggering 44 goals in all competitions with two different clubs.
The former Red Bull Salzburg hitman joined Dortmund for £18.5million in January snubbing a move to Manchester United.
Since joining Dortmund, he has scored 12 goals in his opening 11 matches including a brilliant brace against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
It appears he will use the German side as a further stepping stone before moving to one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Real Madrid have identified Haaland as the man to lead the line for years to come although they could be forced to wait until 2022 when his £63million release clause comes into play.
But Haaland is adamant a move to Los Blancos is at the back of his mind.
“My concentration is on doing my job, not on the attention that others direct towards me. I do my job the best I can, it’s what I like the most,” Haaland was quoted saying by Sky Sports.
“I see that by taking care of the details I learn more and more, trying to be in the best shape possible,” he added.
Real’s chase of Haaland Real is boosted by the excellent relationship between Dortmund chief, Hans-Joaquim Watzke and Bernabeu president Florentino Perez.
“I certainly got off to a good start here in Dortmund. I am concentrating on working to improve every day,” he noted.
