Mino Raiola on Erling Haaland: ‘Four English clubs can afford to buy him’


  • Mino Raiola has claimed that a maximum of 10 clubs across Europe can afford to buy his client Erling Haaland
  • The controversial super-agent further opined that the Borussia Dortmund striker is going to be one of the stars of the next decade
  • Raiola discussed his client’s future, as well as that of Paul Pogba, in a wide-ranging interview with BBC Sport

Mino Raiola has insisted that a maximum of 10 clubs, four of which are in England, could afford to buy his client Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

The controversial super-agent, who has more than 70 players on his books, has been in the news over the past few months due to rumors about his client’s future.

Haaland joined Dortmund only over a year ago, but has been linked to almost every top club across Europe ahead of a potential move this summer.

Raiola claims that one of the reasons ‘everybody is looking’ at the Norwegian is because it’s ‘difficult to do’ what he has been doing ‘at his age’ and ‘at his level’.

The Dutchman further insisted that with stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming closer to retirement, Haaland will replace them in the coming years.

 

Where will Haaland go next?

One of the Norway international’s possible destinations, should they don’t sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, are Real Madrid. Los Blancos have both the financial muscle as well as the history that could lure one of football’s next big stars to dedicate his future to them.

French giants PSG are also reportedly harboring hopes of signing the Borussia Dortmund striker. And they could be in a position to pay whatever money Dortmund demands for the striker in case Mbappe decides against renewing his contract before leaving for Madrid.

Premier League champions Liverpool might also be an interested party. Jurgen Klopp might feel that Haaland has what it takes to fit his side’s attacking style. The potential departure of either Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane in the coming years can also make room for the Norwegian in their squad.

Man City might also be an option for the 20-year-old. Pep Guardiola’s side have reportedly begun their search for the predecessor of Sergio Aguero. The Spaniard might also want a striker whose goals/game ratio is better than the often-disappointing Gabriel Jesus.

Whatever happens in the coming months or years, one thing is for sure. Erling Haaland transfer news and questions about where he will go next will dominate the headlines of sports pages across Europe. And we’ll be reading them closely.
