Red Bull Salzburg director Christoph Freund on Monday suggested that Erling Braut Haaland is expected to sign for EPL champions Liverpool.
The 20-year-old Haaland has of course established himself as one of world football’s most highly-regarded young talents over the last 18 months. we have another hot news about, Rashford shines on Man United’s 5-0 victory over Leipzig you can see at here!
He left Salzburg in January as he made 28 goals in 21 appearances across all competitions, then joined the Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund for £20m and has scored 24 goals in 27 appearances.
Jurgen Klopp stands in good stead of landing the striker should he move on, considering his close relationship with the former club Dortmund.
Freund was not afraid to admit that Salzburg are still feeling the effects of losing Haaland, despite qualifying for the Champions League group stages.
“Erling has really hit us,” he added when speaking with Lothar Matthaus in an interview with Sky90.
“The talks with Dortmund were short. They told us that they have come to an agreement. We didn’t have that much influence on it, but it worked out correctly.
“Many clubs were interested and got in touch. In the end it was a decision made by the player.”
Haaland has since been linked with the top European clubs and when former Germany international Lothar Matthaus suggested a move to Liverpool, Freund replied: “He will land there.”
“He can play for any club in the world,” the sporting director added. “With his mentality, his will and self confidence, he will be able to make a mark on European football in the next ten years.”
Haaland is not shy admitting the fact he admires Liverpool in the past, having netted at Anfield for RB Salzburg from last season’s Champions League.
“The best team in the world,” Haaland said of the reigning Premier League champions, ahead of the meeting. “Very good fans, stadium and atmosphere. Everything. It’s a dream coming true to play here.”
Haaland has made it clear he has no desire to leave the Bundesliga outfit anytime soon but it’s likely Liverpool will be in the picture when the time comes.
