Chelsea and Man Utd on alert with Erling Haaland likely to LEAVE Dortmund if they fail to get Champions League football

ERLING HAALAND will most likely leave Dortmund this summer if they miss out on Champions League football, reports say.

Chelsea and Manchester United are among the European giants trailing his signature this summer.

Interest in the Norway striker is high with Real Madrid and Barcelona also in the mix for a £150m transfer swoop.

Haaland has a £65m release clause next summer if he stays put for another campaign.

But Bild report that Haaland will definitely be on the move this year if his club miss out on the Champions League.

Dortmund are fifth in the Bundesliga, a point behind Frankfurt with three games to play.

It comes after his agent Mino Raiola admitted that Dortmund may refuse to sell the Norway forward.

He told Sport1: "I can confirm that I was in Dortmund for talks.

"Michael Zorc made it clear to us that BVB does not want to sell Erling this summer.


"I respect that opinion, but that does not automatically mean that I also agree. BVB were very clear in their views. We are OK with that.

"There is no war between us and BVB – absolutely not. The relationship with Zorc, Hans-Joachim Watzke and Kehl is still good."

Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl wants to keep hold of the striker for as long as possible but is resigned to losing him eventually.

Kehl told Sky Germany: "Our position is clear – we are planning with Erling. We are very relaxed about that.

"Of course, we have been following the situation. But we had a very, very good talk with Mino and his [Haaland's] father just recently.

"I don't want to go into those talks now. From a certain point on, we may no longer be able to influence what the future will bring.

"I have seen the boy in training in the last two days and I have seen how hungry he is and the sparkle is in his eyes. We are very ambitious, we need Erling to achieve our sporting goals, and we have made that clear."
