Christian Vieri believes Erling Haaland is the best striker in the world, and will eventually go to a new team for a world record fee. 

Speaking on an Instagram Live interview with Corriere della Sera, the former prolific Italian striker claimed: ‘In a couple of years he will go to a great team for €200million, maybe €300million (£260million).’

After scoring 29 goals in 27 games for Red Bull Salzburg, Haaland made a move to Borussia Dortmund in a £17million deal in January.

Vieri was a prolific goalscorer during his career for clubs such as Inter Milan and Juventus

‘Haaland is the strongest of all [strikers] and has done well to choose Borussia Dortmund, the best club to enhance his talents,’ said Vieri. 

And Vieri, who scored 194 goals in 374 games during his career at clubs such as Juventus, Inter Milan, and Atletico Madrid, is likely hard to impress.

Haaland was attracting the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United before making his move to Germany, and after impressing so far with 12 goals in 11 games, it seems likely Dortmund will demand a much higher asking price if he is to move on.

Real Madrid are still interested, and are thought to be front runners for his signature.

Real are desperately on the hunt for a new centre forward with Karim Benzema entering the final few years of his career and Luka Jovic struggling for form since arriving from Frankfurt last summer. 

It is also believed that Martin Odegaard, Haaland’s international team-mate who is on loan at Real Sociedad from Madrid, has led a charm offensive off the pitch to convince his compatriot to move to the Bernabeu.

Dortmund are also unwilling to let their prized asset go so soon after buying him but the 19-year-old is understood to be allowed to leave for £63m from next summer, which could force the German side’s hand in the coming months.
