Borussia Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl insists that Manchester City have not reached an agreement to sign Erling Braut Haaland this summer.
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 to make a decision as soon as possible. Erling always wants to play and you always try to make a good decision together with him.”
When asked if any club had already expressed an interest in forking out Haaland’s release clause, Kehl emphatically responded: “No”.
Haaland has amassed 25 goals and nine assists from 26 appearances in a Dortmund shirt this term and was on target twice in Saturday’s 6-1 Bundesliga success over Wolfsburg.
