Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose has suggested Erling Haaland could stay at the club beyond next summer.
Haaland has emerged as one of the best strikers in the world and has attracted transfer interest from a number of clubs, but Dortmund are confident the Norwegian youngster would stay at the club this season.
Several suitors, though, are expected to line up for the 21-year-old's signature next summer, but Rose has suggested Haaland could remain at Dortmund beyond the end of the 2021/22 season.
"He still has a long-term contract with us. Just because the public is constantly talking about him leaving BVB next summer, that doesn't necessarily have to be the case," Rose told Sport Bild [via Goal].
The Dortmund head coach added: "In the end, Erling has to decide for himself where he sees his future. In any case, we are happy that he is currently playing for us - and, who knows, possibly it'll be even more than just one season if we write an extraordinary story here."
Meanwhile, Haaland has already hit the ground running for Dortmund in the 21/22 season, and the highly-rated attacker has scored five goals and given three assists in three matches so far.
