Liverpool FC will not play poker for BVB striker Erling Haaland. Coach Jürgen Klopp explained in an interview with the sports picture now why that is.
The total package, which is said to be around 350 million euros, is simply too expensive for the Reds. “The numbers that are in the room are crazy – we have nothing to do with them. No chance! To be honest, I don’t want that at all. That’s no fun,” said Klopp.
The 54-year-old therefore summarized his club’s attitude with regard to a Haaland transfer as follows: “We’re not going to do it”. Real Madrid have long been favorites to sign the 21-year-old Norwegian, but Manchester City are said to be ahead.
Haaland’s contract with BVB expires in 2024, but he can leave the club due to an agreement with Westphalia – a club would have to pay a transfer fee of 75 million euros for the center forward.
