“The numbers are just crazy”


Jurgen Klopp has confirmed there is ‘zero chance’ of Liverpool trying to sign Bundesliga star Erling Haaland.

The Norwegian has scored 23 times this season despite multiple injury absences and he has attracted interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Dortmund have managed to dissuade other clubs from taking Haaland so far

One club that haven’t put their hats in the ring for the talented youngster, however, is Liverpool.

The highly rated 21-year-old is under contract at Borussia Dortmund until 2024, so dropping him prematurely from the German side would be costly.

Persuading the Bundesliga giants to let go of their prized possession won’t be easy, and Marca have previously reported that Haaland will cost around £300million.

And it’s the striker’s declared value that prevents the Reds from even considering making a move for him, according to Jurgen Klopp.

Speaking to German outlet SportBild, Klopp said: “We’re not going there. The numbers involved are just crazy – we won’t have anything to do with it. No chance!

“To be honest, I don’t want anything to do with it. It’s not funny.”

Liverpool already have a rich range of attacking options

Dortmund’s plan to deter potential buyers from acquiring Haaland therefore appears to be working.

However, given that Haaland has only won one trophy – the German Cup – with his team, if a club with the right amount of money comes his way, the youngster might just be on the move.

In fact, reports suggest Liverpool’s title rivals Manchester City are the first to sign Haaland.

Pep Guardiola’s side are without a striker following the departure of Sergio Aguero and failed to match Harry Kane’s price tag from Tottenham last summer – so Haaland could be the perfect fit.
