'You never know what will happen': Erling Haaland's father refuses to completely rule out a move

Erling Haaland's father Alf-Inge says his son is happy at Borussia Dortmund but admits he cannot promise that he will be there next season.

Haaland has come to be recognised as one of the most coveted young players in the world after making a stunning start to life in Germany, netting 27 goals in 29 appearances for Dortmund.

Manchester United are among the elite European clubs interested in him and Haaland Sr accepts you never know what can happen in football.

'When you play well, it's only logical that big clubs knock on your door, but we're talking about speculation here,' he told SPORT1.

'At the moment it's not in Erling's or my head that another club will be vying for him. We signed a long contract with Dortmund and they have a fantastic team for Erling right now. We don't want to look any further ahead.'

Asked if the close season could bring about a move, he added: 'You never know what will happen. We haven't talked about such a step yet. I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That is his goal.

'Erling can still achieve a lot in Germany and make great progress. Moving abroad is not a priority for us.

'I sometimes think he wants to and can assert himself in any league. At the moment, he is happy in the Bundesliga and focused on Dortmund. He just wants to be a better player and doesn't look too far ahead.'
