The doors are closing to FC Barcelona to specify the signing of Erling Haaland. From Dortmund they are convinced that the Norwegian will stay at the club
The signing of Erling Haaland by the FC Barcelona luce more slope up that never. No longer it treats of the figures of the traspaso, that are astronomical, but also by the refusal of the Borussia Dortmund in leaving leave to the talentoso leading of20 years, although in the last months took forces the rumour that it was Haaland the one who tightened to abandon the Signal Iduna Park.
However, from the club Teutonic are more than convinced that the ex of the RB Salzburg will remain , at least a year more, in Germany. In fact, the director of the club, Sebastian Kehl, aimed in some statements to 'Sport1' that "understand that Erling Haaland will play in the Borussia Dortmund in the new season" and that the forward "is totally of agreement. I see it each day and can say that it identifies entirely with the club", aimed.
And it is that the manager of professional players of the club of the Bundesliga does not think that there are reasons so that Haaland decide to abandon the Signal Iduna Park, at least in this season. Nevertheless, his agent, Mino Raiola, has left to fall in several opportunities that the player is looking for new team, reason by which at the beginning of April had one turns by Europe to gather with the clubs interested, between which appear the Barça or Real Madrid.
To his time, in a recent interview to the newspaper 'ACE', the representative of Haaland aimed that "if it comes a club like the Barcelona or the Madrid, so big and with so much history, is difficult to say that no". In spite of the 'threat' of Raiola, from the offices of the German team are entirely calm and do not expect that there is a surprise to final of season regarding the Norwegian.
Thus, Sebastian Kehl aimed that "we know very well to Mino Raiola. Therefore one or two statements do not surprise us. We are not naïve and know that we are speaking probably of the most promoted forward of the world in these moments. The speculations will not detain ".
The factor Champions League
Although from the Borussia Dortmund are calm with the continuity of Haaland, the reality is that the classification or no to the next Champions League will play a key factor in the permanence of the forward. It fits to remember that the club is in the fifth square of the Bundesliga, by behind the Wolfsburg and Frankfurt, with possibilities to remain out of the 'top 4' in front of the big level and regularity of his direct rivals.
In case of not to classify, the panorama will change completely, by two reasons. The first is that the Dortmund will need to cover the extra income that generates to play the Champions and Haaland, with his high traspaso, can be his table salvavidas. On the other hand, the most important, is that it is very little likely that the player decide to remain in the club without options to play the tournament of clubs, competition that likes him and in which it has 'exploded' as goleador.
