Erling Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, says he expects the young striker to remain at Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The 19-year-old had taken the German Bundesliga by storm following his move from RB Salzburg in January, scoring nine goals in eight league games for BVB so far.

But Raiola doesn't feel his client is quite ready to move on yet.

"Nobody thought that his adaptation to the Bundesliga and the Champions League in a team like Borussia Dortmund would be like that. No one expected it," Raiola told Marca and added:

"It's not easy to go from Austria to Germany and show that level. He has a lot to improve yet. He'll be at Dortmund for as long as he needs to be.

"It's true that he is a footballer who is anticipating the stages of growth faster than you might think.I don't think that when he left [RB] Salzburg it was the right time, but... I don't think he'll be leaving Dortmund this summer," Raiola said.
