Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has brushed off claims that he spent €500,000 at a restaurant and left a €30,000 tip for the staff while on holiday in Mykonos.

Haaland has been enjoying his time off after Norway failed to qualify for Euro 2020, and was accused of celebrating in raucous style by racking up a hefty bill.

Greek sports newspaper Sportime claimed the 20-year-old racked up the massive charge over the course of five hours, but Haaland was quick to dismiss the claims on social media.

Replying to a tweet referencing the speculation, Haaland tweeted, "I think they forgot the main course. Fake news." He accompanied his tweet with face palm and clown emojis.

The report added that Haaland himself drank four bottles of Cristal Vintage champagne and allegedly headed to Nammos, a sleek complex by the beach made up of a luxury shopping area, a seafood restaurant, and a bar filled with dozens of sun loungers.

While Haaland continues to enjoy his vacation, his future still remains a subject of much speculation. He is widely regarded as one of the best talents in world football today, and has been linked with a number of clubs, including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Chelsea.

Haaland has scored 57 goals in 59 games since joining Dortmund in January 2020 , including 41 in 41 this season.
