The Norwegian striker is currently one of the most sought-after players in world football and at the end of the season, his £64million release clause can be activated.

However, Dortmund are not ready to cash in on the 21-year-old, with BVB set to offer the frontman an 'irresistible' offer, according to Sky Germany.

It is thought that Marco Rose's side are 'ready and willing' to double Haaland's current earnings - which are reported to be in the region of £7.5milion - to around £15million.

Despite this, Dortmund will insist that Haaland's cheap £64million release clause be delayed by another season, meaning that it would not come into activation until the summer of 2023.

The German outfit have reportedly taken inspiration from RB Leipzig, who carried out a similar negotiation with former defender Dayot Upamecano.

Frenchman Upamecano had a release clause of 42.5 million euros that was included for 2021 instead of 2022, with Leipzig making him extend the deal for a further season before eventually selling him to Bayern Munich.

Haaland - who has scored 70 goals in 72 appearances for Dortmund - is currently sidelined until the new year after suffering a reoccurring hip injury.

Yet, he is still the club's top scorer by some margin - having scored 10 Bundesliga goals prior to his injury, five more than second-placed Marco Reus.

The Norwegian has been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs, including Premier League sides Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

His exit clause provides most clubs with a competitive chance to secure his signature should Dortmund fail in their attempts to tie him down to a new deal.
