Erling Haaland is the talk of the town heading into the summer transfer window. The Borussia Dortmund striker is being pursued by the who’s who of European football, including Real Madrid and Manchester City.

The 21-year-old has been a prolific goalscorer for Dortmund since joining in January 2020. To date, he has plundered 80 goals and assisted 22 more from 84 matches so far.

However, the ongoing campaign has been riddled with injuries for Haaland. So far in 2021/22, the Norwegian international 17 games in all competitions due to different injury problems, which has become a bit of a concern for Dortmund as well as his suitors, reports SPORT1.

Recently, Haaland was at the receiving end of a rough challenge while on international duty with Norway against Armenia in late March. The player who tackled the striker had to be stretchered off while the Dortmund star was believed to have picked up an ankle injury.

But he has not missed a game for the Black and Yellows since, although manager Marco Rose has insisted that his ace goalscorer is not pain-free. The Dortmund boss also, surprisingly, claimed that the 21-year-old was refusing to get the injury investigated.

The report adds that this is not the first time such an incident has occurred. Late in January, Haaland had suffered a minor injury, the details of which he and his camp wanted to be kept private without being made public.

And, now his refusal to get his injury diagnosed and make the results public is leading to speculations that the striker does not wish to derail the chances of a mega-money switch in the summer.

Considering the huge sums that would be involved in his transfer, suitors like Manchester City, Real Madrid or PSG would have some apprehensions over the move if it was to emerge that Haaland is a player very susceptible to injuries.

However, by not taking the required measures and keeping any injury issues a secret, the ex-RB Salzburg ace could risk exacerbating his situation further, which could end up having long-term effects on his career.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
