“Before yesterday I hadn’t spoken with my agent for a month. So there you have the answer,” Haaland said in the interview.
“I hope it’s only rumours because it’s a lot of money for a person,” headded.
“First of all I have three years left on my contract. I’m enjoying my time here. But of course the trophy was important because that’s what I want,” he added.
Moreover, Haaland is teasing the news reporters as well by asking them if they’re are any new reports about his move.
“I had a little chat with him today, actually. He just passed by and asked me, ‘Hey are there any news about me?” said reporter Eichmann.
