Erling Haaland says potential £150m bid would be ‘too much for any player’
Speaking about his future, Erling Haaland made it clear that he is not planning to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer.
He said: “Before yesterday I haven’t spoken with my agent for one month. So you have the answer. I hope it’s only rumors because it’s a lot of money for a person,” as per Manchester Evening News.
It has been reported that the 21-year-old could be available for as little as £75m due to the presence of a release clause in his contract that becomes active next summer.
Chelsea are among one of the clubs who were eager to move for Haaland, to avoid a bidding war next season, however, the young striker has reaffirmed his desire to continue his adventure with Dortmund.
“First of all I have three years left on my contract,” Haaland added. “I’m enjoying my time here. But of course, the trophy (last season’s German Cup) was important because that’s what I want.“
After Haaland’s latest comments, it becomes clear that Manchester City would be better off with Harry Kane, or any other of their potential targets, because Haaland is in no hurries to leave the Signal Iduna Park, and even if he does, it won’t probably happen this summer.
