BVB: Is Haaland poker taking longer than expected?
Real Madrid and especially Manchester City have been the most likely buyers for the 21-year-old for weeks – even if the expert Jan-Age Fjörtoft, who is familiar with the Haaland family, said a few days ago that Bayern are still trying to get a transfer .
The transfer poker, which has been going on for months, could take longer than previously thought. So far it was assumed that the Norwegian’s clause had to be activated by April 30th.
The Norwegian TV broadcaster TV2 denied this on Tuesday and instead spoke of a deadline until June. The broadcaster also stated that Manchester City had already secured the financing of the immense Haaland salary, while this was causing problems for their closest competitor Real, also due to the likely transfer of Kylian Mbappe.
