Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed that Borussia Dortmund will be searching for a replacement in the case of Erling Haaland’s decision to leave the club.
BVB CEO has opened up on the Norwegian international and the talks about the pressure on the player to decide his future.
“Saying that Borussia would give Erling an ultimatum is bullshit. There’s no deadline,” he told ARD (as per Fabrizio Romano).

Haaland has been heavily linked with the move to the Premier League team Manchester City as well as Barcelona and Real Madrid. Watzke’s comments could be a huge boost in the Citizens’ pursuit of the attacker.
