Tottenham are one of several European clubs to have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland over the past year.
Spurs were said to be ‘very interested’ in signing Haaland in January before he completed a move to Dortmund (Alfredo Pedulla).
TuttoMercatoWeb reported back in March that Haaland was very much still on Tottenham’s radar this summer, although the rumour does appear far-fetched looking at how well the Norwegian international has done since his move to the Bundesliga.
However, there has been speculation suggesting that the striker has a £63 million release clause in his contract with Dortmund (talkSPORT), which could give the Lilywhites some hope.
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham are still unlikely to make a move for the 19-year-old given the amount of interest he is generating from big clubs across Europe.
Inter Milan legend, Christian Vieri, has now suggested that the striker is likely to move to a European giant for a world record transfer fee when he eventually leaves Dortmund.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Vieri said: “In a couple of years he will go to a great team for €200 million, maybe €300 million (£260 million).
“Haaland is the strongest of all [strikers] and has done well to choose Borussia Dortmund, the best club to enhance his talents.”
Spurs Web Opinion
We have no chance of signing Haaland now given how well he’s playing in Dortmund and I suspect the club have long given up hopes of landing the Norwegian. I believe he is Real Madrid-bound whenever he decides to leave the Westfalenstadion and he could well end up being the most expensive transfer in history.
