Man City, Man Utd alerted as BVB chief Zorc sends Raiola message over Haaland

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc is completely relaxed about the future of Erling Haaland.

The 20-year-old striker is being linked with Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Manchester United.

The player's agent, Mino Raiola, travelled to Spain last week for transfer talks with Barca and Real.

The English clubs, especially City and United, are heavily interested in the Norwegian.

But Zorc says he has told Raiola that Dortmund have no intention of selling their prized asset.

"I don't see the need to set deadlines [for transfers] at the moment." said Zorc.

"With Erling Haaland, we have a clear stance which we have communicated to the parties involved.

"Yesterday I spoke to Mino Raiola. We've made our intentions very clear. It's no problem when Alfie [Haaland's father] and Mino want to take a sunbathe on the Mediterranean Sea.

"I am relaxed because I know what we want."
