Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke assumes Erling Haaland will stay this summer even if the club miss out on Champions League qualification.

"We don't have a parallel plan. We will talk to Erling, his father and his agent, Mino Raiola, in peace. After all, we want him to be happy to stay with us and that he will score goals with conviction for BVB next year. There is no alternative plan," Watzke told DAZN.

As for Jadon Sancho, who was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last summer, Watzke said:

"If an extraordinary offer comes in for him, we will discuss it with the player and his agent, as always."

"Nonetheless, I am very sure that the transfer market will only run to a very limited extent this summer.

"Especially at the really big clubs you can see what kind of wounds coronavirus has inflicted, and they are not small ones that heal within two weeks."
