‘Get him!’, ‘Activate it’, ‘it’s time to make a move’ – Many fans react as Dortmund chief denies Man City deal for Erling Haaland


Borussia Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl has emphatically denied reports claiming that Manchester City have a deal in place to sign Erling Braut Haaland.

Pep Guardiola’s side are regarded as one of the frontrunners to secure Haaland’s signature, although they are expected to face competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

A recent report claimed that City believe they have already won the race for the signature of the 21-year-old, who is also keen to complete a switch to the Etihad Stadium.

However, Kehl has since pointed to Haaland’s €80m (£67m) buyout option, telling Sky Deutschland: “There is a release clause, you know, and there is a deadline.

“We want a decision as soon as possible. We are in talks. The sooner there is a decision, the better it will be, and I hope it will be timely.”

When asked if any club had already expressed an interest in forking out Haaland’s release clause, Kehl emphatically responded: “No”.

These Sebastian Kehl’s comments were shared on Twitter and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.

“For those wondering, the reports from certain established publications that Kehl said City hadn’t activated the release clause, are false.. He never once mentioned City’s name. He was insinuating that all interested clubs hadn’t..”
