Mino Raiola, the Italian players’ agent, confirmed that all major European teams want to sign Erling Haaland, the German player of Borussia Dortmund, indicating that Real Madrid can afford the cost of contracting him.
Raiola said in an interview with the Spanish newspaper “Diario As”: “Dortmund told me that he does not want to give up Haaland, we have to be patient until the first of September to see if there is insistence on their position or not. If a good offer is received, we will present it to Dortmund, I want to sell the player.” Dortmund does not want to sell it. ”
He added, “All of the 14 major clubs in Europe want to sign with Haaland. Now it is important to know which option is best for him.”
Regarding the possibility of Real Madrid bearing the cost of contracting with Haaland, Raiola said: “I do not know, I did not study their economic situation, but I believe that they can afford the cost, but the other question: Can Real Madrid afford not to buy Haaland? What if he went to Barca?”
He continued: “Barcelonas contract with Haaland is difficult. It is a complicated matter, but it is not impossible. This is the job of the club president. The same thing applies to players, it applies to clubs.”
And he continued: “The future of a player does not depend on another player at all. You should know that in the big clubs, Messi and Neymar can live together, or Ronaldinho can live with other greats, Mbappe and Haaland can play together.”
Raiola concluded his remarks: “The reason why Haaland is so important is that he is very young and has experience at the high level, the same with Mbappe, but you only have one chance to buy them.”
