Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland's father says that his son is not currently thinking about leaving Signal Iduna Park.

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland is not currently thinking about leaving Signal Iduna Park, according to the Norweigan's father Alf-Inge Haaland.

The 20-year-old has been in excellent form for BVB since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg in January, scoring 27 times in 29 appearances in all competitions, including 11 goals in 11 outings this term.

A number of clubs, including Real Madrid and Manchester United, are believed to be interested in signing the Norway international in the near future.

However, Haaland's father has said that the striker is currently focusing on winning trophies with Dortmund, who lost at home to Bayern Munich in their last game before the international break.

"When you play well, it's only logical that big clubs knock on your door, but we're talking about speculation here," he told SPORT1. "At the moment it's not in Erling's or my head that another club will be vying for him. We signed a long contract with Dortmund and they have a fantastic team for Erling right now. We don't want to look any further ahead.

"You never know what will happen. We haven't talked about such a step yet. I think he would like to win some trophies with Dortmund. That is his goal. Erling can still achieve a lot in Germany and make great progress. Moving abroad is not a priority for us.

"I sometimes think he wants to and can assert himself in any league. At the moment, he is happy in the Bundesliga and focused on Dortmund. He just wants to be a better player and doesn't look too far ahead."

Haaland has a contract with Lucien Favre's side until the summer of 2024.
