The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.

Dortmund set date for Haaland transfer update

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl thinks the club can expect clarity over Erling Haaland’s future in the upcoming week. Reports have frequently linked the striker with a summer transfer.

Kehl told Sport1 on Sunday: “I know what is in the contract, we are bound by the exit clause. We have tried in the last few months to reach a decision on Erling’s future. But then came the death of [Haaland’s agent] Mino Raiola. Unfortunately, the issue has dragged on a bit. But I think we will have clarity in the next week.”

With a reported €75 million release clause for this summer, Haaland has emerged as a top transfer target for some top European clubs – including Premier League leaders Manchester City.
