Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has indicated his club have no alternative plan in the event Erling Haaland leaves.
Borussia Dortmund scorer Erling Haaland is still announced all over Europe. Retained by his leaders last summer, the Norwegian striker risks this time to slip away under other skies. A reality that we do not ignore on the side of Signal Iduna Park. However, the BVB management refuses for the moment to abdicate, even to the point of completely avoiding the question of his replacement.
“We want Erling to be happy with us”
It was Hans-Joachim Watzke, the club’s general manager, who made this admission in an interview with Goal / DAZN. “We don’t have a parallel plan,” he said. We will discuss this with Erling, his father and his agent Mino Raiola. We also want him to be happy to stay with us, to score goals for BVB next year with conviction. There is therefore no alternative plan. “
While ensuring that the objective remains to keep the star of the team, Watzke was unable to promise that Haaland and also Jadon Sancho will still be at the club next season. “I don’t want to get into the game of probabilities, it’s not good,” replied the BVB official. Jadon Sancho has been with us much longer than Erling Haaland. We’ll also need to talk to Jadon. If there is an exceptional offer, we will discuss it with the player and the agent, as always. Nonetheless, I am convinced that the transfer market will only work to a very limited extent this summer. Especially in the very big clubs, you can see the impact that the coronavirus has had and it is not something that you can overcome in a few weeks ”.
