Erling Haaland is a man in a hurry and much coveted. However, if his club is to be believed, the Norwegian international (12 caps, 7 goals) should not leave BvB this summer. Under contract until 2024, the 21-year-old forward, who was bought for 20 million euros from Salzburg in January 2020, is expected to take part in the title fight against the Bavarian contender. In any case, this is what Sebastian Kehl, the club’s new sporting director, announced in an exclusive interview given to BILD. “I see an Erling still extremely concerned. He has incredible energy and is really ready for the season at BVB. Erling won his first title with Borussia Dortmund a few weeks ago (German Cup against Leipzig, note). I believe that too inspires and stimulates him. He sees what is possible and he often asks me when we will be able to find our supporters. Celebrating this triumph without them worried him. He would like to revisit this interaction between fans and players in the coming season. For me, he has the typical profile of a winner. He wants to be a champion – and I firmly believe he can do even better ”, first explained the new strong man of the recruitment of Dortmund, sure of himself.
At the question “Will Erling Haaland still be a Borussia Dortmund player after August 31 ?,” Sebastian Kehl initially had a short response: “Yes”. Before detailing. “During discussions with Mino Raiola (Erling Haaland’s agent) about the transfer of Donyell Malen, I didn’t feel that we had to meet again soon about Erling. And we’ve already stressed 1000 times that we don’t want to let it go. I have no doubts that Borussia Dortmund will be a fantastic club for him in the coming season to develop further ”. Announced with insistence on the side of Chelsea, will Erling Haaland join London this summer? The German board seems confident. But we are still talking about an offer of 150 M € made by the band to Thomas Tuchel. In the meantime, Sebastian Kehl and his assistants are having fun with the transfer rumors surrounding their Norwegian serial scorer (59 matches, 57 goals with BvB). “Aki, Michael (Hans-Joachim Watzke and Michael Zorc) and I are now smiling about it. We have taken a clear position and have repeatedly stressed that we will not be selling Erling this summer. It was exactly the same for Jadon Sancho last year until the last day of the transfer window. We all saw how it ended. I mean: no one should underestimate us ”.
