Zorc warns Man Utd, Real Madrid: Haaland at BVB long-term

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc is adamant Erling Haaland is a long-term prospect for the club.

The Norwegian star is in the middle of a transfer tug-of-war with Manchester United and Real Madrid both chasing the striker.

Haaland has bagged a staggering 33 goals in his first 31 outings for BVB across all competitions to spark a huge demand for his services.

Despite being tied to the Signal Iduna Park until 2024, the forward reportedly has a verbal agreement to leave next year.

But Dortmund chief Zorc dismissed the speculation surrounding Haaland by insisting the future of the club's star man is in no doubt.

Speaking at a press conference, he told reporters: "We plan for the long term with Erling. [Rumours] do not have to be dealt with at all.

"I will see him with us for a long time."
