Pep silenced over Haaland transfer
PEP GUARDIOLA said he has been banned from talking about Erling Haaland until the deal to bring him to the Etihad is complete, writes MARTIN BLACKBURN.
Manchester City are poised to activate the release clause – reported in Germany to be £64 million – to sign the Borussia Dortmund striker.
But both clubs urged Guardiola not to speak about what he might bring to the champions until everything is agreed.
Pep was speaking ahead of the trip to Wolves on Wednesday night and said: “Everybody knows the situation but I should not talk because I do not like to talk about the future, next season.
“At the same time I should say something, but Borussia Dortmund and Man City told me I’m not allowed to say anything until the deal is completely done.
“So I cannot talk, I’m sorry. We’ll have time to talk.
“I would love to talk, honestly, but I can’t! They tell me don’t say anything for the legal actions or the legal situation, it’s far away from my perspective.
“We’ll have time to talk about that. It’s not because I don’t want – but because I can’t.”
