Reports have emerged that Borussia Dortmund will need to sell Erling Haaland for financial reasons.
The club is listed on the stock exchange, and as per the rumors, the only way to pay the investors. However, Dortmund‘s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has rubbished the reports.
“It has not yet been decided whether he will really leave in the summer,” Watzke has told Sport 1.
“We’ll just have a look. I heard someone say: ‘They have to sell Haaland because they are listed on the stock exchange.’ This is all bullsh*t.
“The decision whether someone is sold at our company is made by the management and only by the management.”
However, it’s understood that Erling Haaland’s contract has a release clause between €75 million and €100 million, so it’s looking like the Norwegian will be leaving Dortmund next summer whether the club wants it or not.
Besides, lots of top European clubs including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, and more would be all out for the star striker should he show any desire to quit the Bundesliga club.
