Haaland In A Hurry For His Dortmund Debut

The wait is on as BVB prepares to unveil its newest rising star.

Media reports had teams lining up to sign Erling Haaland from RB Salzburg.

Those most mentioned were Manchester United, Juventus, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.

Whatever offers and pitches were made to the young striker, Dortmund struck the right note and captured a young footballer who is most certainly a rising star.

They just went direct and said, ‘Yes, we need you up front, and we like your playing style and we want to have you here.’ And I like how they spoke to me then, and that's what triggered me.

What triggered Dortmund’s bid for Haaland was 28 goals in 22 outings for Salzburg this season, a record that makes the transfer fee of €20 million look like theft.

Having started his Dortmund induction at the team’s winter training camp in Spain, it will be interesting to see how soon Haaland can make his Bundesliga debut.

I know that I have something to give to the team. So yes, that's my main goal now to have the small goals and to reach them and then I know it will be good.

With the season resuming this weekend, and Dortmund needing a win after a draw and a loss, it is likely Erling Haaland will get a chance to show why he is one of football’s rising stars.
