Haaland on possible Dortmund exit, Solskjaer on possible Sancho deal, Havertz deal could be in August in Manchester United roundup..
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was mischievously asked what his chances of signing the likes of Jadon Sancho from Dortmund, by mate Jan Aage Fjortoft, now a presenter for Viasport.
Sancho has developed into one of the best wingers in the game since his move to the Bundesliga, put his stunning performances has also meant that the likes of Manchester United are interested in a possible deal.
Dortmund do not want to sell and it seems that Sancho will only leave if he is forced, especially as the German side know that they will be able to get over the £100 million mark when the transfer window opens up.
But amid all the speculation, Solskjaer was mischievously asked what his chances of signing players from Dortmund: “Ha ha. I’m good at math, but I can’t answer that question, Jan Aage,” Solskjaer replied. “There are many good footballers on many teams.”
“I think it’ll be a calm transfer window or a sightly different kind of window.
“I think a lot of clubs will have to be careful not to spend too much money. You might still not know how much you’ve lost financially during this pandemic and what’s gone on lately.
“We’re quite relaxed. I am very happy with the squad I have. I think it looks better and better. And then there is something in front of us screaming that it’s sensible – both from a sporting and a financial perspective. So I know we’re going to try but you can’t make any promises.”
Borussia Dortmund striker and Manchester United target Erling Haaland has dismissed the idea he could be set to leave the club just six months after joining.
Regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now, Haaland is considered to be one of the men that go on to become a world class player and eventually challenge for that coveted best player on the planet tag.
His performances in the Bundesliga is keeping the teenager on the recruitment radar of many ambitious clubs, but he has no intention of contemplating another change of scenery any time soon.
However, despite all the speculation that he could leave the club in the summer, Haaland has opened up and dismissed the notion that he could leave Dortmund so soon after signing with the German giants.
“I live in the present,” he told German newspaper WAZ.
“I have just arrived in Dortmund and I’m not thinking of leaving for now. Dortmund are one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have signed a long-term contract and I don’t think too much about the future.
“I decide what is the best thing for my career here and now. I want to achieve something important with Borussia, not always be second, but also win the title as soon as possible.
“The next year we set targets, we want to score as many goals, and I as a striker want to contribute.”
Bayer Leverkusen hope to fend off interest in Manchester United target Kai Havertz but coach Peter Bosz has acknowledged that a deal could be completed by August.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have one of the most exciting and creative sides in the Premier League right now, but he will need to spend some money in the next couple of windows to improve the side in certain areas.
That has led to the speculation in the media that Havertz, who is valued at around the £89 million mark, is now top of the shopping list of Solskjaer, who is reportedly a huge fan of the midfielder.
Real Madrid and Chelsea are also battling Chelsea for the signature of the highly-rated German, and boss Peter Bosz has acknowledged that a deal could be completed by August.
Bosz told BILD: “I don’t feel that he is thinking too much about transferring. Neither are we.
“I certainly don’t have the impression that this will be his last game for the club.
“He is still under contract with us and I have to assume that he will be with us next season too.
“That will include the German Cup final next month and the next Europa League game against Rangers in August.
“Of course, that’s all dependent on nothing happening before then.”
Havertz is a top-class attacker that will improve any side, so it will be very interesting to see just where he ends up if he leaves Leverkusen.
