Haaland more excited for the Revierderby than a move to Real Madrid

Erling Braut Haaland has been one of the most discussed players in this season after a very successive spell with RB Salzburg. Initially, he was linked with Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund. But then a few months later, he chose Dortmund over the Red Devils.

Haaland is in his first season with Dortmund but he is still attracting clubs like Real Madrid and PSG, considering a move in future. However, recently, Haaland cleared the air after he claimed that his focus remains on Borussia Dortmund. The Norway international starred for Salzburg before joining the Bundesliga giants in January and he has scored 12 goals in 11 games for Dortmund this season.

While talking to Sky Sports, Haaland said, “I focus on this, not on the attention that is towards me. I think about doing my job, which is the thing I love the most. My focus is on this. Without a doubt, I started well here in Dortmund. I am concentrating on work to improve every day. I see that by taking care of the details I learn more and more, I try to be in the best possible shape.”

Bundesliga is all set to return this weekend and everyone is excited after months of no live football. The training sessions have begun, safety measures are being taken and everyone is giving their best to not spoil getting their normal lives back to the way it was before the coronavirus outbreak.

Dortmund are set to face Schalke in the Revierderby to restart the season and Haaland is excited to experience the fixture, even though it will be played behind closed doors. When asked about it, his response was, “I can’t wait to live and play my first Ruhr derby, I have played other derbies but never like this.”
