BVB chief Watzke urges Man Utd, Chelsea target Haaland to stay where he is

Borussia Dortmund management are urging Erling Haaland to resist interest from abroad.

Manchester United and Chelsea are among clubs being linked with the Norway striker.

The 20-year-old has bagged ten goals and two assists in just nine Bundesliga appearances this season.

BVB CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke reckons it's too soon for Haaland to jump ship.

When pushed on a potential summer move, he told Kicker: “I don't think that will happen. Erling and his advisor Mino Raiola know what they have in us.

“I can only advise him to do things like Robert Lewandowski."

Lewandowski spent four years with Dortmund before joining Bayern Munich in 2014, whereas Haaland has only been at the club for one year since arriving from RB Salzburg last January.
