pretty shocking on both counts if that isn’t some sort of joke.

For Haaland to be that against interviews that he’d cost himself his dream move but equally shocking that Ole would allow that to be a deciding factor in a move for him.

Feel like it’s got to have been taken out of context somehow though.
It’s 100% a joke with fake subtitles. Just wanted to throw a little fun in this thread after I found this clip by complete accident.

That would explain the sums varying (rising) over time in the reports, going from 60m € initially to 75m € only to suddenly be reported around 100m €. It would make sense if it rose because he was scoring for fun.

People on here are very harsh on strikers. I saw it on here last season on Martial who was having a very good season. Whenever he got isolated and marked out it was all his fault. City were playing a high line and his team mates could not get him one good chance. If Haaland and Sancho leave this team they are going to be in so much trouble. The rest of that team is average is feck.

Then there is the comparison to Mbappe, they guy who played alongside a very good winger (di Maria) and a world class player in Neymar. Haaland didn't even have Sancho who is not on the level of those 2 yet.
Yeah there wasn't much Haaland could have done, being so isolated up front. It happens to the best players, especially strikers up front. They played well in parts, but then it seems they got the instruction to not continue doing what was working, and then ended up coming under pressure.

What Dortmund need is a good manager. If anything, their season shows that having players like Haaland and Sancho isn't enough with an average coach at the helm. A good coach should get a better level out of the rest of the team, even if they lose those two.

You think only provocateurs value Haaland at 75 million....then go straight on to value Sancho at 65 million?

:wenger:
According to The Times, BVB are open to selling Sancho for £86m at the end of the season, especially if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Manchester United are ready to pay only £50million to sign Jadon Sancho, reports Sky Sports.

So if Sancho’s price ends up being something in between, I suppose my guess wasn’t to bad. Haaland’s 75m price tag and comparison with Lukaku is in another league:houllier:

The majority of experts value Haaland together with Mbappe as the most attractive or expensive players on the planet right now, and you suggest Haaland’s price is close to Rice level and below Grealish price tag:wenger:

I think you're a little stuck in the pre Covid transfer market. Apart from Sancho of course, who you somehow value at less than Rice or Grealish now for some reason.

I'd be surprised if Sancho left for just 65 million, and I'd be equally surprised if Haaland fetched more than 100 million when he has a release clause next year.

It’s eventually not me who is stuck in pre COVID. I only refer to valuations done by respective clubs; more or less PsyOps.

Time will show;)

Yeah Utd are having an absolute laugh if they think Dortmund are selling Sancho for £50m even in these COVID times, could happily live with only getting Haaland for 3/4 years IF we could win the race for him next summer but fear there will be too much competition for us.

Another one (header), but disallowed for offside. Might still get a hattrick today he definately seems hungry for it.

Now we know why Raiola was whoring him around Europe a few weeks ago. Everyone has the cash to buy him because of JP Morgan investment

A few weeks ago a Romanian ref asked him for his autograph, in order to donate it to an association for people suffering from autism.
Today they received a few more from him, - top bloke.

I'm not anti Scottish, I just wanted Moyes out.
We certainly won't be signing Haaland now will we, all these mega signings were probably based on the Glazers planned profits from the Super League weren't they.
It's going to be a weird summer. Wonder how the parasites will react now that their coup that they had probably been planning for years is off.
No transfers? 50m max? lets see.

It’ll go one of two ways. The club will either feel pressure to spend this summer, with a hope of getting fans back on board, or not spend much at all, given the lack of Super League bonus money and (albeit unlikely) potential sale of the club. No significant expenditure might be be more likely.
