FOOTBALL – Chelsea Mercato: Borussia Dortmund sets the record straight for Haaland

While it was reported in recent days of a rapprochement between the leaders of Chelsea and the clan Haaland, especially after the announcement of an offer of 175 million euros for the Norwegian striker, the new head of players under contract Borussia Dortmund, Sebastian Kehl, wanted to clarify things. Interviewed by the German media Bild, the former international confirmed, among other things, that Haaland had no reason to leave the Ruhr area this summer.

Haaland: Sebastian Kehl extinguishes Blues’ hopes

In an interview for the German newspaper Bild, the new head of player contracts at Dortmund, Sebastian Kehl, spoke about various topics related to arrivals and departures. In particular, he returned to the Erling Haaland file. If the huge offer from Chelsea for the striker has reached the ears of the club and the player, the leaders of BVB remain very confident. “Will Haaland stay this summer? Yes. “

Kehl had met with the very influential agent of the Norwegian, Mino Raiola, during the transfer of Donyell Malen (Raiola is also the agent of the Dutchman). During this meeting, the name of Erling Haaland was never mentioned. “During the discussions with Raiola for Malen, I did not have the feeling that we would have to meet again for Haaland. We don’t want to let him go.”

The striker, who recently celebrated his 21st birthday, also reassured BVB fans about his future. During his press conference, Haaland recalled his commitments with Dortmund “First of all, I have three years to fill on my contract. I have a good time here,” recalling his desire to win titles. The player also returned to the rumor of an offer of 175 million euros from Chelsea “Before yesterday, I had not spoken with my agent for a month. So you have the answer. I hope that these are just rumors, because this is a lot of money for one person.”
