“This is what I want” – Erling Haaland sends transfer message to Dortmund amid interest from Manchester United

After scoring 57 goals in just 59 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland has admitted he wants to leave his comfort zone and develop even more.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing the 20 year old striker this summer.

Haaland told Icon Magazine: “I have been taking a couple of steps over the past few years and I think they have been good steps for me, personally, to get out of my comfort zone and to develop even more.

“I want to challenge myself in everything that I do. It’s something I think about.

“It’s also for everyone to always do this. People can sometimes be too comfortable staying in their ‘zone’ so I think it’s important to get out of that.”

He added: “I try to train as best I can and to deliver when I have to deliver and be prepared when I have to be prepared.

“That is how I feel about it. It’s what I try to do. But it’s also important not to get too stressed – to enjoy the game and to have fun. That’s the most important thing. I always try to have fun.

“My career has already been going very fast but also at a speed that I like.

“It’s true that I am young but I am setting myself goals all the time and I will do everything I can to achieve them.”
