Erling Haaland has broken his silence for the first time publicly on his future with Borussia Dortmund while away on international duty with Norway, as per quotes relayed by El Partidazo de COPE on Monday afternoon.

The Norway international has been subject to a heavy amount of interest from Europe's most high-profile clubs in recent weeks, including the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea from the Premier League, and La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It has been claimed in both Germany and England that several clubs have already initiated contact with the player's representatives, which include former Manchester City player Alfie Haaland - who is Erling's father.

However, the 20 year-old striker ensured he remained relatively tight-lipped on his future when he was quizzed on potential interest, during a press conference with the Norwegian national team on Monday.

As per quotes relayed by El Partidazo de COPE, Haaland said, "I still have three years of contract [at Borussia Dortmund]. I am not worried about that."

The former Red Bull Salzburg forward left the pitch furious this weekend, after Borussia Dortmund’s 2-2 draw with FC Koln as they dropped more points in the race for the top-four in the Bundesliga.

There is a feeling in some corners that should Dortmund miss out on Champions League action for next season, then Erling Haaland may seek a move elsewhere, and Borussia Dortmund may be keen to cash in considering the financial losses that would be caused by missing out on Europe's premier competition.

It was reported on Monday morning by the Athletic's Sam Lee that Manchester City representatives had spoken to Erling Haaland’s father, Alfie a couple of weeks ago - indicating that the top officials at the Etihad have already sanctioned a potential transfer and that the wheels are in motion.
