Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland is ready for the next step in his career, according to Germany legend Lothar Matthaus.
Haaland’s breakthrough in 2020 saw him deservedly claim the Golden Boy award after he netted a incredible 44 goals in all competitions during 2019/20, with 28 scored for Salzburg in the first half of the season and then 16 in 18 matches for Dortmund.
Both Manchester United and Manchester City are reported to be tracking the Leeds-born striker, and Matthaus believes a move is not far away.
The Germany legend told the Bundesliga website: “This positivity that he radiates, radiates on the team which is why I think that someday, Haaland will not be playing at Dortmund anymore and will make the next step.
“He is already ready and we are proud to have him in the Bundesliga.
“Dortmund need to be pleased to have gotten him because he is a striker that fits to a club with such emotions. At the age of 20, he is a machine. He is a flying striker.
“He brings a positive energy in the team while also scoring goals. He is irreplaceable.”
