Borussia Dortmund director Michael Zorc has hit out at rumours linking Erling Haaland to Paris Saint-Germain amid talk of the French giants submitting a €200million bid for the 21-year-old.

The promising youngster has been linked with a switch to a number of top clubs, including, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City.

PSG are reportedly the latest club to join the race for Haaland despite Dortmund publicly insisting the striker is not for sale, and Zorc is expecting speculation to continue until the transfer market closes on August 31.

When asked whether the club's resolve could be tested by a €200m offer, Zorc told Kicker: “We are a football club, not a bank! Our position is very clear and did not change. I assume that we will now be confronted with wild rumours for another two days. Our position is clear, I don't need to play the parrot all the time."

PSG are looking to bring in Haaland as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. Club officials have confirmed that Mbappe wants to leave, and reports have claimed that the LaLiga giants are waiting to hear back on their third bid for the 22-year-old.
