Dortmund give update on Haaland's future ahead of possible 2022 transfer

The striker is wanted by half of Europe and could leave Germany next summer

Borussia Dortmund managed to retain Erling Haaland last summer with the promise that he could leave next year. However, the club have warned that may not be the case.

The club's general director Hans-Joachim Watzke has said the speculation around the Norway striker is "bullshit" and wouldn't rule out keeping him beyond 2022.

"It has not yet been decided whether it will really leave in the summer," Watzke 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 bullshot.

"The decision whether someone is sold at our company is made by the management and only by the management.

"The ball lies in Erling's court. I get on well with Mino Raiola because we can assess each other well. I know what makes him tick. It is not right to believe that Raiola is all about money. He also has in mind what is best for Erling."

Remember that Haaland has been linked with all of Europe's biggest clubs, including Barcelona and Real Madrid. Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Chelsea are also lurking, although the latter have now signed Romelu Lukaku.
