Borussia Dortmund has made a u-turn and are reported to have doubled down on their attempts to keep Erling Haaland at the club by placing an eye-watering £172million (€200m) asking price on their star striker.
Haaland has emerged as one of the most wanted players in the world after taking his game to the next level at the Signal Iduna Park.
Now, Dortmund are keen to deter the rapidly rising interest of Premier League giants Manchester United, City and Chelsea – along with LaLiga royalty Real Madrid, as report Spanish publication AS.
Sunday’s front page carried a large image of Norwegian star Haaland along with the bold headline ‘Haaland 200 millones.’
The interest of Manchester rivals City and United is already known, with both clubs in the market for an elite level centre forward.
