ERLING HAALAND'S agent Mino Raiola has revealed that Dortmund do not want to sell the striker this summer.
And the super agent says he's fine with the decision and respects their opinion.
Haaland is the most coveted striker in world football with all of Europe's giants trying to sign him this summer.
Man Utd and Chelsea lead the Premier League chasers for the £154m forward with Real Madrid and Barcelona also interested.
But, in a fresh twist, Raiola revealed that Dortmund might try and hang on to his services.
He told Sport1: "I can confirm that I was in Dortmund for talks.
"Michael Zorc made it clear to us that BVB does not want to sell Erling this summer.
"I respect that opinion, but what does not automatically mean that I also agree. BVB were very clear in their views. We are okay with that.
"There is no war between us and BVB – absolutely not! The relationship with Zorc, Hans-Joachim Watzke and Kehl is still good."

The prolific Haaland has banged in 39 goals in 42 games this season for Dortmund and Norway.
Dortmund chief Sebastian Kehl wants to keep hold of the striker for as long as possible but is resigned to losing him eventually.
Kehl told Sky Germany: "Our position is clear: we are planning with Erling. We are very relaxed about that.
"Of course, we have been following the situation. But we had a very, very good talk with Mino and his [Haaland's] father just recently.
"I don't want to go into those talks now. From a certain point on, we may no longer be able to influence what the future will bring.
"I have seen the boy in training in the last two days and I have seen how hungry he is and the sparkle is in his eyes. We are very ambitious, we need Erling to achieve our sporting goals, and we have made that clear."
