Where will Erling Haaland play next season? This is a question that is currently agitating the entire football world, moreover at a time when its famous agent, Mino Raiola, is in a critical state of health. “I am outraged by phone calls from pseudo-journalists who speculate on the life of a man who is fighting to survive”, declared, as such, a doctor from the San Raffaele hospital in Milan to the Italian agency Ansa in reaction to the false information disseminated recently. Announced dead prematurely and wrongly by the Italian press, the Italian-Dutch crosses, in any case, painful hours, he who has suffered from a lung disease for several months. What to question the future of the Norwegian cyborg? Not so sure…
The Haaland plan does not change!
According to the latest information from Sports Picture, Mino Raiola’s illness should in no way affect the future of the Norwegian international (17 caps, 15 goals) because Borussia Dortmund’s departure plan has been perfectly designed for a few months now. Courted by Real Madrid, for whom he gives his preference, but above all by Manchester City, ideally positioned in this soap opera, Haaland also remains in the sights of Bayern Munich in the event of Robert Lewandowski’s departure to FC Barcelona. But one thing is certain, Mino Raiola remains the brains of the operation.
Despite the latest information on his critical state of health, the German media specifies that the influential agent still continues to answer calls from the San Rafaelle hospital in Milan where he goes daily from Monaco to be treated for the disease he suffered. suffers. Moreover, Sports Picture affirms that everything would already be planned, even if the situation were to worsen. Therefore, if Raiola is no longer able to act, others close to his agency such as his nephew Vincenzo, his son Marco or José Fortes Rodriguez could then intervene to finalize the transfer.
Dortmund confirms the presence of a termination clause!
Symbol of the necessary precautions taken in this file, the Haaland clan went to Monaco no later than last Sunday and it is there that the crucial talks could have taken place. So with Raiola at his side or without him, nothing today seems to prevent the Marsupials striker from flying to new skies. Waiting for a sign from the Merengues, the one who can boast of 25 goals and 8 assists in 27 matches in all competitions since the start of the season therefore remains more than ever at the start. A denouement also reinforced by the speech of the CEO of Dortmund, Hans-Joachim Watzke, in the program “19:09 Talk” of the daily Ruhr Nachrichten and Radio 91.2.
And for good reason. Confirming the existence of a termination clause in the contract of his protege without validating the amount of 75 million euros often relayed, the leader of the BvB thus only reinforced the probability of a departure from Haaland during of the next summer transfer window. “First of all, we have to let it be known that we need a new Erling Haaland. In the end, the truth is that we gave him a termination clause otherwise he would have gone to Manchester United. He has a decision to make, it will eventually come. The important thing is that we can find his replacement. If Borussia Dortmund can do one thing, it’s find their successor. A team always wins more than a player., said Watzke. It now remains to know the lucky winner who will be able to afford the services of the Dortmund serial scorer.
