Haaland to stay with BVB (kicker)

Despite rumors that have linked him with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United, and just about every other top club on the planet, Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland will not be going anywhere according to BVB sporting director Michael Zorc:

BVB sporting director Michael Zorc ruled out saying goodbye to striker Erling Haaland (20) on Sunday. “He will play for us in the new season,” said Zorc before the Dortmund guest appearance in Mainz on “Sky”. Haaland has an exit clause in his contract until 2024, which he cannot draw until 2022.

Borussia Dortmund’s clinching of another Champions League berth might have both sides feeling a bit better about next season’s arrangement. Still, with a rumored release clause able to be triggered in 2022, BVB could be risking losing tens of millions of euros by not selling the talented Norwegian this summer.

Falk kills Hakimi rumor...again (@cfbayern)

The rumor that keeps coming back like the T-1000 was killed again by Sport Bild’s Christian Falk:

Arsenal, Madrid leading on Camavinga (@iMiaSanMia)

Bayern Munich’s rumored interest in Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga could have hit a roadblock given the fees expected for the 18-year-old, but Arsenal won’t be scared away from splashing some coin.

Funny enough, Real Madrid might also find itself out of the bidding due to a lack of funds:

Paris Saint-Germain has also been rumored to have major interest in Camavinga.

Lewandowski appreciated the effort from his teammates (@FCBayernUS)

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski let his teammates know that he could not have done it without them:

Glasner to leave Wolfsburg? (@RaeComm)

The release clause in Wolfsburg manager Oliver Glasner’s contract needed to be triggered on Saturday, but no one knows if it actually was. There were rumors linking him to Eintracht Frankfurt, but no concrete information has been released:

Sabitzer won’t get roped into discussing his future (kicker)

RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer is one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe these days, but he won’t get drawn into any conversation speculating about his future:

What’s next for Marcel Sabitzer (27), who has only been under contract with RB Leipzig for one year? Was the 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg his last home game for RB? “I still have a contract until 2022. So you can calculate for yourself how many home games will come,” Sabitzer replied to “Sky”. “So much is said in football. What I say today won’t count tomorrow. That’s why I’m leaving it at that I have a contract until 2022.” He still didn’t want to confirm that he will still be there in the coming season: “I’ll leave it as I said.”
