Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has revealed that his club has begun to pressure him about his future. 

A whole host of clubs have been pushing to get the services for the highly-rated forward including Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

Haaland has two years left on his current deal at Signal Iduna Park but teams are closely monitoring his situation as it is reported he has a £66m (€75m) release clause which becomes active in the summer transfer period. 

"Well, the last six months I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club has started to press me into making a decision, but all I want to do, is play football. 

"But they press me to make a decision now about my future. So that means I have to make a decision soon. 

"As I said they have put a lot of pressure on me and I have to accept that. I have chosen not to say anything out of respect for my club and the fans. But now it says itself that a lot of pressure is coming from the club, so now is the time to get things started. 

"Yeah, that is what they want, me to decide future. It means that things will happen now. I have said from the beginning that I want to focus on football because that is when I am at my best 

"Not when other things come into my mind. They have put pressure [on] for a while. So it is time to get started [negotiating]. 

When asked when he would want to make a decision Halaand noted that he would love to focus more on his football. 

“Not now because we are in the middle of a difficult period with a lot of games. All I want to do is play football but I can't do that now," Halaand noted.
