Nuri Sahin has opened up and told the likes of Chelsea that Erling Haaland will stay where he is for one more season.
Chelsea have one of the very best attacks in world football and Thomas Tuchel will be looking to win that premier League title in next seasn, but he knows that he needs to add a world class striker to the attack in order to beat of Manchester City.
And there is many rumours that United are very interested, just like the most of Europe, in trying to secure the services of Haaland in the summer.
His agent, Mino Raiola, caused a stir recently when suggesting that Dortmund would be tempted to sell this summer, but the stance from the club is that Haaland will be going nowhere until at least 2022, and Sahin believes Dortmund will stick to their guns.
The Turkey international said: “As a fan of Dortmund, I hope he will stay! But it’s his decision. There are many people around him who are speaking and helping, showing him the pros and cons of staying at Dortmund, but in the end he will decide if he will stay or not.
“He still has a contract for a few more years, and if Dortmund don’t want to let him go, they will make that clear.
“I don’t see a big problem, to be honest. I think Dortmund will get the Champions League and Haaland will stay at least one more year, and then everyone will be happy!”
There will be alot of rumours about the future of Haaland up until the day he moves, or the window closes. But at the end of the day it is all about money, so if Chelsea or any other club make the right offer they will sign Haaland.
Dortmund may want to keep hold of the man, but every player has a price.
