Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed that the club is not planning to sell Erling Haaland this season, while they are open to listening to offers for Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Sancho last summer, though the deal didn’t materialize, with both sides not agreeing on a transfer fee. Now, the Red Devils have also been linked with Norwegian youngsters for the summer transfer window.
However, Watzke said they are not going to sell Haaland this summer regardless of the club’s outcome in their push for the Champions League football.
“We don’t have a parallel plan. We will talk to Erling, his father and his agent, Mino Raiola, in peace. After all, we want him to be happy to stay with us and that he will score goals with conviction for BVB next year. There is no alternative plan,” he told DAZN.
On Sancho, Watzke added: “If an extraordinary offer comes in for him, we will discuss it with the player and his agent, as always. Nonetheless, I am very sure that the transfer market will only run to a very limited extent this summer.
“Especially at the really big clubs you can see what kind of wounds coronavirus has inflicted, and they are not small ones that heal within two weeks.”
