Erling Haaland's desire to 'absolutely' want to move clubs in January prevented RB Leipzig from making a move for the Norwegian striker, according to the club's sporting director Markus Krosche. 

Haaland chose to join from Red Bull Salzburg for £18million at the weekend, after favourites were reluctant to meet the demands of the player's agent Mino Raiola and his father Alf Inge Haaland.

After scoring 28 in 22 games for Salzburg, Haaland will join Dortmund on Friday, having signed a contract to keep him at the club until 2024.
