Sebastian Kehl, licensed game manager and future sports director of Borussia Dortmund, continues to believe that the Norwegian striker will stay beyond the current season despite the statements made by Haaland consultant Mino Raiola.
“The things are clearly named: I assume that Erling Haaland will play for Borussia Dortmund in the coming season,” said Kehl in the Sport1-Double pass. “But of course we are not naive, we know that he is one of the most hyped players around and that the speculation will not end.”
Raiola recently had an interview with the As indicated that in the Haaland personnel, despite the contract until 2024, everything is possible in the summer. “I think if there is a good opportunity that makes everyone happy we will discuss it.” At the moment BVB is “very certain that they don’t want to sell it”, but: “Let’s wait and see if they see it that way by September 1st.”
When asked about this, Kehl said: “We know Raiola a bit by now. That’s why one or the other statement doesn’t surprise us.” Haaland himself is “totally involved. I see him every day and can say that he completely identifies with the club.”
Raiola had further stated that despite the effects of the corona pandemic, numerous top clubs – although a release clause of 75 million euros will not apply until 2022 – will be able to sign Haaland after the season: “I think they all can The question is another: Can Madrid afford not to buy Haaland? Barca too? All 14 big clubs want him. “
