Real Madrid president Florentino Perez considers a transfer of BVB striker Erling Haaland to be “impossible” – unless the Super League project comes about against expectations. Borussia Dortmund’s sports director Michael Zorc is relieved after Perez and Co.’s plans failed for the time being. The BVB Ultras still see a reason for protest. Here you can find news and rumors about the black and yellow.
Several goalkeepers in their sights: Here you can find BVB news from the previous day.
The collapse of the Super League put BVB sports director Michael Zorc in a good mood. “I’m glad that the spook ended before it really started,” said Zorc on Wednesday evening on the sidelines of Dortmund’s 2-0 win against Union Berlin Sky. “And I’m also happy that both we and FC Bayern Munich have clearly positioned themselves from the start and that we won’t take part.”
Zorc the 58-year-old had special praise for the fans from England, who with their protests ensured that the six Super League participants (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea FC, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC) refrained from their plans: “I am pleasantly surprised how the fans, especially in England, have resisted. Thank God they immediately took to the streets and made a significant contribution to the fact that the plans were shelved for the time being.”
BVB, News: Zorc happy about the Super League collapse
In an interview with the radio station Cadena Ser When asked about the names of Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) and Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund), Perez said clearly: “Such transfers will be impossible without the Super League. Neither for Real Madrid nor for any other club.”
BVB striker Haaland, who is still under contract with BVB until 2024, is associated with a number of top clubs from all over Europe. His father Alf-Inge and his advisor Mino Raiola recently traveled through Spain to get offers.
However, the high financial demands on the Haaland side deterred many interested parties. And according to Perez’s statements, Haaland’s stay at BVB beyond the summer seems a bit more likely. Especially since BVB sports director Zorc made it clear again on Wednesday: “We have made a clear statement about the Haaland cause. The decision will not be made without Borussia Dortmund. No matter where we end up, Erling will continue to play for us.”
The controversial Super League is off the table for now, but the also controversial Champions League reform is not – and for this reason the BVB ultra grouping “The Unity” renewed its protest against UEFA and its simulation games before the home game against Union on Wednesday .
Two more posters were placed on the fence in front of the stadium: “A UCL reform as a compromise in favor of those who know no compromises. UEFA, DFB – you hypocrites are playing the same wrong game!” Most recently, a banner with the words “Stop UCL Reform” adorned the south stand.
