Erling Haaland wanted by TEN teams including Man Utd, Chelsea and Bayern Munich as Dortmund fight to keep hold of star
BORUSSIA DORTMUND hotshot Erling Haaland is wanted by TEN clubs after a stunning season in Germany.
The 20-year-old has scored 33 goals in just 30 games in all competitions and is unsurprisingly attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs.
According to his agent Mino Raiola, there are ten teams interested in signing the striker.
Manchester rivals City and United have been linked with a summer swoop, while Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly entering the race.
They will have to compete with at least six teams from around Europe all keen on the Norwegian.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are believed to be four of the six interested.
Speaking to the BBC Raiola has predicted that Haaland will follow in the footsteps of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic and become 'one of the future stars of the next decade'
He added: "Only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] and give the platform you would like after you've been in Dortmund… and four of those clubs are in [England].
"I don't think there's a sports director or trainer in the world who would say 'not interested'.
"It's like saying: 'Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?'"

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he still keeps in touch with the Borussia Dortmund goalscoring ace despite missing out on his signature last summer.
Solskjaer was desperate to get him from RB Salzburg and looked in pole position, given he had a close relationship with the striker at Molde.
He met the Leeds-born Norwegian personally to convince him to become a Red Devil as others swooped, but then lost out to Dortmund in a deal worth 20million euros (around £17.2m).
Haaland, 20, possesses a £65million release clause in his contract, which will become active in 2022.
But if clubs want to bag him earlier, it looks likely to push past £100, to land him.
