Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has rejected the idea of Erling Haaland joining Paris Saint-Germain before the end of the transfer window.
There are reports that the Ligue 1 giants are preparing a huge bid for the Norwegian star in order to force BVB to a sale.
As Kylian Mbappe is said to be approaching a move to Real Madrid in a € 180 million deal, rumors are that PSG are willing to go close to the world record fee of € 222 million they paid Neymar four years ago in a attempt to sign Haaland as a replacement.
Dortmund, who sold Jadon Sancho to Manchester United for 72.9 million. Pound (85 million euros) in July, has always been determined to keep Haaland until at least next year, when a rumored release clause of 75 million. Euro enters into force.
Zorc certainly appears to have little interest in discussing the sale of the 21-year-old, who has three goals in three Bundesliga matches in 2021-22, including the winner after injury time against Hoffenheim on Friday.
“I assume we will be confronted with wild rumors for two more days,” Zorc told the kicker.
“Our position is clear. I do not have to play the parrot all the time. ”
Haaland has managed 43 goals and 10 assists in 46 Bundesliga matches since joining Dortmund from Salzburg in January last year. In the same period, only Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski (61) has scored more.
Max Eberl, sporting director of Borussia Mönchengladbach, said he did not expect Dortmund to be tempted by any huge offer from PSG.
“As far as I know [CEO] Hans-Joachim Watzke, the money would not be enough for him, “he told Bild TV am Sonntag.
“There is not enough backup for Haaland. All their goals for the season would be in jeopardy.
“BVB has always been firm over Haaland, and I think that’s nice.”
