In the months of poker about the future of top scorer Erling Haaland, a decision is apparently imminent. He expects “clarification in the next week. I wouldn’t be surprised if he moves on in the end,” said future BVB sports director Sebastian Kehl on Sunday Sport1 double pass.
Haaland (21) can leave BVB at the end of the season due to an exit clause for a fee of 75 million euros. Manchester City is the favourite.
Dortmund wants to sign national player Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg as a replacement. “I assume that we will make progress with Karim this week,” said Kehl.
It has been reported for weeks that Dortmund have reached an agreement with the 20-year-old attacker. The base fee should be 30 million euros.

I can clearly say that I am planning the season with Marco, that we are currently in preparation, with the transfer issues, discussing everything together. We But we sit down after the season, because we certainly have a few critical things to analyze, and then I hope that we can do better together in the new season.”

I already had Rouven Schröder yesterday (Schalke sports director, editor’s note) Congratulations as BVB manager. Congratulations on returning to the first division, Schalke! That’s where they belong. It was a mammoth task to turn this squad around and get rid of many very high-earning players and integrate new players. I think hard work is a sign of quality in the pot, Rouven fits in really well. The mood that has now emerged again will carry them for the time being. And there is nothing better for BVB than celebrating derby victories.”
