The Daily Bee: BILD Reports That Erling Haaland may not Leave BVB

I like this, therefore I choose to believe it.

Good morning, everyone.

How can it be the international break already? Didn’t we just finish one of these? It feels like it’s been two weeks max. Gio Reyna, who injured himself with the USMNT during the last break, missed the entire previous month for his club, and now another international break has begun. This gives each BVB player on international assignment a new opportunity to injure themselves. Joy.

So you’re saying there’s a chance?

There seems to be an almost universal consensus that Erling Haaland is going to leave in the summer of 2022... emphasis on “Almost”. According to SportBild’s Jan Aage Fjortoft, who seems to have become the internet’s official Haaland pundit, the Norwegian striker hasn’t yet made his mind up on leaving, and that he and his family may want to stay longer if it will help his development.

If for some miraculous reason Haaland does stay in Dortmund, then BVB could be in danger of letting him leave for free when his contract runs down, if they don’t extend him first. Assuming he continues his current trajectory, Haaland could demand wages that far outpace anything BVB could pay him, so it’s hard to see this happening. While it would be nice if Haaland stayed longer, I ultimately don’t think it will happen.

Marco Reus is still the GOAT

I promise I won’t be negative this morning, though. That’s because we all have an opportunity to recognize Marco Reus, whose assist to Julian Brandt on Saturday was the 100th of his career with Borussia Dortmund:
