Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that they are not expecting big-money moves for Erling Braut Haaland or Jadon Sancho this summer.

Halaand and Sancho have been linked with summer moves away from the club with the former having been tipped to make a move to Man United in the last summer before a deal collapse.

Halaand, who joined the club last year has been one of the revelations in Europe and with his form, a big-money move has been intimated to happen in the coming window with Real Madrid, Liverpool, and PSG all said to be interested in his services.

But speaking to Sky Deutschland, the Dortmund chief said: “Overall, I don’t think that crazy things will happen. I know the situation in the European leagues very well, and the clouds are getting darker instead of lighter.”

Watzke did concede that the financial powerhouses could still find a way to bolster their squads with world-class players, adding: “[PSG and Man City] are backed by entire states which find ways and means to pump money in.”

While Halaand is expected to cost a huge sum of money, he would be available for a considerably lower price of £68m next summer due to his release clause. The situation is similar with Sancho, as Dortmund risk losing their much-coveted duo if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Haaland’s brace in Saturday’s Klassiker defeat to Bayern Munich took him up to 19 goals for the Bundesliga season, while Sancho boasts six strikes and 11 assists in the current top-flight campaign.
