Erling Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola says there are four Premier League clubs who could compete for the Borussia Dortmund star’s signature and says ‘everybody is looking’ on the in-demand ahead.
The 20-year-old has netted 17 objectives in as many Bundesliga appearances this season – in addition to eight objectives in simply 5 Champions League outings – and is on the want record of a number of European giants.
Manchester United tried to sign Haaland earlier than he joined Dortmund, whereas Chelsea and Manchester City have emerged as switch rivals, and Raiola expects Premier League clubs to be on the centre of the tug of warfare to sign the striker.
‘The problem that I feel you have in England, especially in England, whenever I tell my opinion – just an opinion that I have – everybody in England goes berserk,’ Raiola instructed BBC Sport when requested about Haaland’s future.
‘I am the worst agent, or I am the best, it doesn’t matter, you’ve got people who love you or people who hate you – or 80% hates me, 20% loves me or no matter.
‘And clubs get so much stress and stressed out by it, especially from the public and the journalists, that I’ve realized to not speak a lot about it, solely throughout the market.
‘It is obvious though that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it’s so troublesome to do what he does at his age at his stage.
‘He will probably be one of many future stars of the following decade as a result of we see that stars equivalent to Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Messi are coming to an age the place everybody asks themselves: “How long can we still enjoy them?” So everyone seems to be in search of the brand new era.
‘It’s apparent that solely possibly a most of 10 clubs can afford to purchase [Haaland] from Dortmund so we will all fill in these clubs.
‘And four of these clubs are in your lovely nation [England]. And you’ll be able to fill them in, you’ll be able to name them and ask “Would you be interested?”
‘I don’t suppose there’s a sports activities director or coach on this planet who would say “I am not interested”. It’s like saying: “Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?”’
Haaland has a £68million launch clause which turns into lively in the summertime of 2022, although Dortmund could be moved to promote him earlier – and for a much bigger price – in the event that they fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.
