Mino Raiola: Four Premier League clubs could sign Haaland

Super agent Mino Raiola has revealed there are four Premier League clubs who could compete for the signature of Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland. 

Raiola, Halaand's agent says 'everybody is looking' at the in-demand forward who has been in fine form netting 17 goals in as many as Bundesliga appearances this season. Manchester United were keen to secure Halaand's services before he moved to Dortmund while and now Chelsea and Manchester City are also interested in his signature. 

The player's agent says he expects Premier League clubs to compete for the signature of the in-demand striker. 

Speaking to BBC Sport, Raiola said, "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." 

"I am the worst agent, or I am the best, it doesn’t matter, you have people that love you or people that hate you – or 80% hates me, 20% loves me or whatever."

"And clubs get so much stress and stressed out by it, especially from the public and the journalists, that I’ve learned not to talk so much about it, only during the market. It is obvious though that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it’s so difficult to do what he does at his age at his level."

Future star 

"He will be one of the future stars of the next decade because we see that stars such as Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, and Messi are coming to an age where everyone asks themselves: 'How long can we still enjoy them?' So everyone is looking for the new generation. It’s obvious that only maybe a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] from Dortmund so we can all fill in those clubs."

Premier League interest

"And four of those clubs are in your beautiful country [England]. And you can fill them in, you can call them and ask 'Would you be interested?' I don’t think there’s a sports director or trainer in the world 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?"

The 20-year-old currently has a release clause of £68million which is set to become active in the summer of 2022.
