Raiola reveals the list of clubs which could sign Haaland
The striker's agent has given an indication about where the player could go next in the second part of an interview with Sport 1 - four clubs could sign him.
Mino Raiola has given details about Erling Haaland's future during the second part of an interview with Sport 1. He revealed that four clubs have a strong chance of signing the 21-year-old.
Haaland's future: "Haaland can and will take the next step in his career. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City - they are the four big clubs which he could end up joining. City have won the league five years in the past few years, significantly more than United. When we moved to Dortmund, we all knew that the moment would arrive when Erling would make the next step".
Summer move: "Maybe next summer, perhaps the one after that. There is a big chance that Erling could leave in the summer. We'll see".
Reasons for moving to a new club: "He's a player who needs to develop and improve, he is looking for new challenges. And of course, it's about trying something different. He will only changes clubs when something better comes along".
Buy-out clause: "Listen, what is written in the contract is between the player and me. Only two sides can say anything about it to the outside world - the club and the player. We never discuss details. Dortmund and ourselves know exactly what would need to happen. The contract has been structured very clearly. We've always has a very open communication with [Hans-Joachim] Watzke, [Michael] Zorc and now with [Sebastian] Kehl. They have been very honest with us. That's much more important than anything written on a piece of paper. The piece of paper is only there in case anything goes wrong, that would be when it would be needed but not for other things..."
Could he choose which club he wants to join? "I don't know. We'll have to look into that. It's going to be a very strange summer. We'll be playing football for a month and a half, then everything will stop and we'll be going to Qatar for the World Cup. It'll be strange".
Meeting over the winter: "Correct. We've always done it that way".
Could a decision be made in the next few weeks? "I still don't know about that. We will tell Borussia about our idea and they will tell us about theirs. But no firm decision will be made over the winter".
