Now the 20-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola has now claimed that there are 10 clubs in football – whom he did not name – who are in a financial position to sign his client, with four of them based in England.
It remains unclear if either Los Blancos or the Blaugrana are included in such a list, with neither in a financial position that would allow them to sign such in-demand players without firstly sanctioning sales from their respective first-team squads.
“I don’t think there’s a sports director or trainer in the world who would say ‘not interested’. It’s like saying: ‘Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?'”
The future of Haaland remains unclear and there will doubtless be plenty more speculation regarding his future following Raiola’s latest comments.
