Sebastian Kehl admitted that Borussia Dortmund might reach a point where they are powerless to hold onto Erling Haaland.
Norwegians’ shares continue to rise
Their shares continue to climb in the Bundesliga, and a number of major European parties are lining up in the bidding ahead of a possible war. The herb was furious this week when agent Mino Raiola was spotted in Barcelona, fueling speculation about a possible move to Catalunya.
They are very relaxed
Kehl, head of the first Dortmund’s team, is aware of Raiola’s trip to Spain and said there had been positive talks with the player’s agent, with their intention to keep the striker at the club. Kehl says their position is clear and they are planning with Erling and they are very relaxed about it. Caring for Dortmund Haaland has a claimed €75m ransom clause that becomes active in 2022 and any club that exposes that figure will take BVB out of the picture. When asked if Haaland Dortmund asked to let him go, Kehl replied that he did not want to go to these negotiations now. From a certain point, they may no longer be able to influence what the future brings.
They are very ambitious
Being the subject of huge media coverage can be a source of distraction for any player. At 20, Haaland is in a fragile stage of his career and after seeing links in Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, to name several parties seeking a position, he could turn his head. However, Kehl argues that Haaland’s behavior has not changed in the face of harsh media speculation. He said that he had seen the boy in training in the last two days and saw how hungry he was and the sparkle in his eyes and that they were very ambitious and needed by Erling to achieve his athletic goals, and made that clear.
