Erling Haaland ‘does NOT like the Premier League and prefers LaLiga’ as Real Madrid and Barcelona are the ‘only clubs that can sign the Borussia Dortmund star’ claims Italian journalist
- Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has attracted interest from Europe’s elite
- Manchester City will reportedly go all out to land the 20-year-old next summer
- But journalist Gianluca di Marzio believes the Premier League is an unlikely move
- Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the striker
Erling Haaland is reportedly unlikely to make the move to the Premier League as it is not his dream.
With the transfer window opening on January 1, the rumour mill is working overtime and Haaland is one the stars being linked with a move.
The 21-year-old has attracted attention from Europe’s elite with his performance for Borussia Dortmund, scoring 19 goals in 16 appearances this season.

Man City are reportedly determined to land the striker next summer, with reports in Spain suggesting the English champions have already made contact with his representatives.
The Premier League champions face stern competition with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich also said to be interested.
And it appears City will have their approaches rebuffed as Sky Italia expert Gianluca di Marzio believes the English top-flight is an unlikely move.

‘He [Haaland] doesn’t like the Premier League too much, it’s not exactly his dream. It’s not the perfect league right now,’ he told Wettfreunde.
‘He prefers La Liga – he likes the league a lot. So I think La Liga is the perfect environment for him to play in now. Or the Bundesliga, where he currently plays.
‘Real Madrid would be an option. Even if they are sure to sign Mbappe, they would like to have a few strikers in the future. I don’t know if they can do it.

‘Only Real Madrid and Barcelona can get him because he can’t go to Atletico Madrid or any other club.
‘Probably because – like Mbappe, who wants to play for Real Madrid – he told his agent to try Real Madrid. And if not with them, then with Barcelona and if not with Barcelona, then with Chelsea, Man Utd etc. ‘
However, earlier this month, Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola name-checked the Premier League champions as the Norwegian’s potential next destination.
‘Erling can and will take the next step,’ said Raiola. ‘Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, City — these are the big clubs he can go to.
‘City have won the championship five times in the last few years, much more than United.’
