Dortmund star Erling Haaland has until February to decide whether he will sign a new double-your-money contract at the club based on interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Norwegian has scored an incredible 76 goals in 74 games since choosing Dortmund over United two years ago, following a £ 20million move from RB Salzburg.

Haaland is now one of the most wanted players in the world, and Europe’s elite are all preparing for a switch for him this summer, when a £ 68m release clause is reached. in his contract becomes active.

The Norwegian is reportedly demanding up to £ 500,000 a week, but Dortmund are desperate for him to sign a new deal to get rid of his release clause, as they could comfortably get double that on the open market.

According to BILD, the Bundesliga club has given Haaland until February to decide whether he will sign pen-to-paper on a new deal that would double his current £ 130,000 a week.

Should Haaland accept Dortmund’s offer, he would become the club’s record earner through all time, but they will think it’s a good investment as he’s worth up to £ 120m. on the open market.

Manchester City are looking for a new striker after failing to land Harry Kane last summer, while Ralf Rangnick is a regular admirer of the Norwegian national team player.
