Erling Haaland has reacted to Jadon Sancho’s pending transfer to Manchester United as Chelsea ramp up their own efforts.
It comes as the announcement confirming the Englishman’s arrival at Old Trafford comes at any moment now.
Sancho completed his medical this week after United and Borussia Dortmund agreed on a £73m fee over the Euros.
“Me and Jadon understood each other very well and he’s a top player“, Haaland said.
“So of course it’s sad that he goes but that’s how it is and that’s football. You never know what will happen“.
“But I think that there’s a lot of other good players that I have a good tone with and it can become even better“.
“We have to see who I match the best with“.
Haaland insists he is ‘looking forward to working’ with new Borussia Dortmund boss Marco Rose.
“I know him from before because I had six months with him in Salzburg. He’s a nice guy and I look forward to working with him“.
“That’s what I expect the tactic to be to press a lot, run a lot and attack a lot“.
