Borussia Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl believes the proposed transfer of Erling Haaland to Manchester City will be finalized by next week.
As of last month, it was believed that Manchester City has agreed on a verbal deal with the Norwegian striker’s representative and are ready to pay for his release clause of £63million in the summer transfer.
However, the release clause has to be activated before April 30 but as of now, there is no announcement regarding the transfer from either party.
It is also believed that the sudden death of Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola has affected the transfer proceedings.
Now Kehl, who will resume office as the Club’s sports director this summer has shed more light on the transfer of the striker.
He told Sport1:
‘I know what it is in the contract, we are bound by the exit clause’.
‘We have tried in the last few months to reach a future on Haaland’s future but then came the death of Raiola’.
‘Unfortunately, the issue has dragged on a bit but I think we will have clarity next week’.
