Star consultant Mino Raiola has made it clear that numerous top clubs would be able to sign his protégé Erling Haaland. There would be a unique opportunity to sign the BVB star. He also provided a surprising reason for his trip to Spain with Haaland’s father Alf-Inge.
Raiola named the Norwegian in an interview with the As in the same breath as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. “Once they are at a big club, they won’t be given away,” he said. There is “only one chance to buy them. Right now you have the chance to get them for the next ten years”.
Real Madrid in particular has recently been linked with a commitment by the 20-year-old, who is still tied to BVB until 2024 and could leave the club next summer due to an exit clause. At Real, however, a transfer from Kylian Mbappe should have priority.
Although those responsible at Borussia Dortmund have ruled out a sale of Haaland this summer, the fixed transfer fee in 2022 should only amount to 75 million euros. This year, BVB, which is currently still fighting for the Champions League qualification, could very well call double the sum. Too much in times of the corona pandemic?
Not if Raiola has its way: “I think they all can [sich leisten]. The question is another: can Madrid afford not to buy Haaland? Barca too? All 14 big clubs want him. “Now it’s a matter of” finding out which is the best option “.
Haaland to Bavaria? “Everyone knows that they will become masters”
On this question, he is in close contact with his client, who has to “give him his opinion”, “so that I have clarity and can show him all options”. There have also been talks with BVB: “Dortmund was very determined when they told us they didn’t want to sell it in the summer, Raiola admitted. In an interview with BBC BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke had already emphasized that he knew where Haaland would play next year.
However, the Italian did not rule out a change of opinion among the Black and Yellows: “Let’s wait and see if they see it that way by September 1st. I think if there is a good possibility that makes everyone happy, we will discuss it . “
Raiola also praised the youngster’s mentality, who has already scored 38 times this season. “He wants to score goals and win titles. He’s a bit like Cristiano or Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. He’s obsessed in a positive way. “That’s why it’s” just hard to say no when big clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona knock on your door “.
Due to the greater competition, Raiola is toying with a move to Spain: “The league does play a role. PSG play in the worst league of the big clubs. Bayern are in an attractive league, but we all know they win every time. In Spain, on the other hand, three clubs are fighting for the title. “
