Mino Raiola is heading to the UK for Erling Haaland talks with four clubs including Manchester City and Chelsea

Agents on tour

There doesn’t seem to be a day that goes by during which the future of Erling Haaland is not a major story, and the last twenty four hours have proven no different.

101 reported earlier today that the Norwegian’s agent, Mino Raiola, and father Alf Inge Haaland, were set to hold talks with Barcelona on Thursday. This wasn’t the only stop for the pair in Spain, though, as Real Madrid also had the opportunity to discuss their interest in Haaland’s signature.

But such stops were just the first on what is quickly turning into a genuine tour of the clubs interested in Haaland, the most sought after player in the world at this moment in time.

The Borussia Dortmund frontman has a £65 million release clause in his contract, set to become active at the end of next season.  This of course means that BVB have a decision to make as to what to do with Haaland this summer, amid reports that it will take £154 million to prize him away.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that the Raiola-Haaland sr. tour continues tomorrow, as the pair head to hear from Premier League giants, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

The four clubs are likely the only ones in England with the financial ability to make a deal happen, and to convince Haaland of his central role in their plans moving forward.

Tough Choice

Haaland will have to weigh up the best option for his future, but ultimately with Raiola involved, it may simply come down to who has the deepest pockets.

All of the clubs mentioned will surely be prepared to do all they can do bring him on board, as the attacker’s presence would greatly enhance their chances of dominating both domestically and in Europe over the coming decade.

No doubt, we will continue to hear more on the story as the season continues, and rolls into the summer.
