With his brace last weekend, Erling Haaland keeps surpassing every single expectation we had from him in the current season at Dortmund. 

Erling Haaland keeps on surprising the entire world with his level of performance at Borussia Dortmund. Last weekend was another one to remember from him after scoring a brilliant brace against Union Berlin. One of those goals was a reminder that Erling is similar to Zlatan Ibrahimovic but he is delivering far better numbers than the Swedish legend. This season alone, Erling Haaland is starting to prove that he can actually score more goals than the matches he plays.

For his club, Erling has played a total of 8 matches and scored 11 goals. With his national team, the youngster only played 3 games so far and already scored 5 goals. These numbers are wild if you think about Haaland’s age and the entire career he has in front of him. With 7 goals in the Bundesliga, he is also competing for the top scorer award this season against Robert Lewandowski. Dortmund might not have what it takes to win the tournament, but at least Haaland can compete to win this award. 

Can Dortmund Keep Haaland past this season? 

Since he arrived to play for Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland already played 67 matches and scored an impressive 68 goals. He also has scored 21 goals in just 17 Champions League matches. There’s no doubt that Haaland will be one of the next summer transfer window’s most coveted players. Many speak about FC Barcelona’s chances to sign the youngster but we are betting on a possible English takeover. Haaland is perfectly aware that the best football in the world is currently in England.

It’s obvious he would want to play where the most competitive the tournament can be. What we don’t know is which of the major clubs in the Premier League he would pick. There are so many options and only one Erling Haaland to enjoy. FC Barcelona does seem like the romantic option but the Spanish La Liga is a decadent tournament right now. When he decides to make the jump, it will likely be England or Bayern Munich. The numbers he is putting up are worthy of only the most competitive clubs in Europe.
