Borussia Dortmund have set their asking price for Erling Haaland this summer if they are to part ways with the Norwegian striker.

The 20-year-old is in high-demand this summer with Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid just three of the clubs tracking the Dortmund forward.

And ESPN have now revealed that Dortmund will demand €180 million fro interested clubs if they want to sign Haaland this summer. 

Haaland has a release clause of just €75 million which becomes active next summer, so clubs will have to pay a heavy premium if they want to sign him in a year in advance.

Dortmund are hoping their eye-watering fee and 'hardline tactic' will warn all of the interested clubs off this summer so they are able to keep Haaland for a further year before letting him go next summer. 

Chelsea believed they could get a deal done this summer, however ESPN note that this was before Dortmund's stance became clear with their €180 million valuation. 

Haaland provided an update on his future earlier this week saying, ""My future? I still have a three-year contract. I'm not worried about that."

The clear valuation comes after reports in Spain suggested that a deal between Real Madrid and Haaland was 'practically done'. Whilst in Germany, they claimed that it is 'very unlikely' Chelsea will get a deal done for Haaland following Dortmund's separation with Thomas Tuchel back in 2017.
