Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has reportedly agreed to stay at the Bundesliga outfit until at least 2022.

The Norwegian goalscoring sensation Haaland has netted 41 goals this campaign having been prolific for RB Salzburg before his £17 million move to Dortmund.

The brilliant 19-year-old striker only made the move to Dortmund in January, but that has not stopped the speculation with both Manchester United and Real Madrid believed to be monitoring his situation.

According to a front page of Marca last month, Madrid will prioritise signing Haaland this year before moving for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe in 2021 and AS have published something similar today.

United are also believed to have Haaland, who they desperately tried to sign in January, on their radar and ESPN FC last month claimed United will still have hope of signing Haaland if they can meet the striker's release clause.

"The interesting thing about that deal [with Dortmund], though, is that his representatives made sure there was a release clause in that deal, which means that if a team were to meet that in the summer, he would have the freedom to go and talk to them," reporter Rob Dawson said.

However, according to Diario AS there is no clause in the striker's contract to allow him to leave the club earlier than 2022 and that was at the request of his agent Mino Raiola, with any deal prior to that summer likely to cost more than €120 million.
