Borussia Dortmund successfully signed talented striker Erling Haaland from RB Salzburg. The Norwegian goal scorer chose to move to the Westfalenstadion despite interest from several big European clubs.
Erling Haaland, who scored 8 goals from 6 games in the Champions League this season, wanted to join a top club with the promise of playtime and European competition. Therefore, Michael Zorc made sure the deal goes through. With a contract until 2024, Haaland’s purchasing fee is around 20 million Euros. Moreover, the total cost of purchasing the 19 years-old sensation is around 100 million Euros.
“We can all look forward to an ambitious, athletic and physically strong center forward with a pronounced goal instinct and impressive speed, which we would like to develop further in Dortmund,” said Michael Zorc. Haaland will join the BVB team in Marbella, Spain on January the 3rd.
With this new signing, Erling Haaland will offer a true number 9 option to Lucien Favre’s squad. Especially after the young Norwegian scored 28 goals and provided 7 assists in 22 competitive games this season.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
