When Borussia Dortmund's star striker Erling Haaland feels ready to take the next step, he will most likely leave Germany, according to former Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Former Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has expressed doubt that Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland will stay in the Bundesliga in the long run.


The highly-rated striker has been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs, including Bayern München.

However, with reports claiming that Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, is demanding an astronomical annual salary of around €50 million for his client, Rummenigge believes a move outside of Germany is likely for the 21-year-old.

"I'm afraid Haaland won't stay in the Bundesliga," said Rummenigge in an interview with Sport Bild and continued:

"He has become an absolute figurehead of the league alongside many Bayern München players.

"But the numbers that are circulating show that it's difficult to keep him in Germany. I assume that Haaland will go abroad in the future."

According to reports, Haaland will be able to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer via a release clause that could rise to a maximum of €90 million.
