The rumours around Erling Haaland and his future club heated up last April when the most expensive agent Mino Raiola and Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland, visited FC Barcelona’s new club president Joan Laporta. The Spanish media celebrated their arrival with news that Haaland will join Barcelona next season. But fans doubted how they could afford a star signing like Haaland’s when the club is under huge debts.
After a day, the fans and the media realised that his father and agent were on a ‘European Tour‘ to analyse which club would be the best for Haaland’s future. It’s strange when we hear about this so-called tour. After visiting Barcelona, they travelled to Madrid to see Florentino Perez. This trip didn’t end here. There were also rumours that they had talks with the major clubs of the English Premier League too. Betting on the team that he plays is an easy decision and soccer betting is not a bad choice with Haaland.
The super-agent Raiola has always been in the transfer news when it comes to his players. He is one of the costliest agents in the football world, who always wants the best for his players and demands high commissions for every transfer. In the case of Haaland, he knows that he has a diamond in his hands. A diamond that has the attraction of many European Giants. All the clubs connected with Haaland are attentive to his situation at Borussia Dortmund. They were adamant that they would not sell him at the beginning of this season, even if any club offered more than 200 million euros. Some clubs tried to convince Dortmund. But they remained in the position that Haaland is not for sale.
We will surely see a transfer war in the 2022 summer transfer window. Haaland’s release clause of 75 million euros will be activated in June 2022, and it will be the perfect chance for the teams to buy a highly rated player at this prize. A golden opportunity. The leading clubs on the race will be Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United FC, Chelsea FC and Manchester City FC. Bayern Munich stated that they would not go to war to sign him. But their stance might change in the coming future.
Real Madrid wants to build a new Galactico Era with Haaland and Mbappe up front. FC Barcelona wants to rebuild the team with youngsters, and they expect that Haaland can solve their weakness in attacking. Manchester United hopes that Ole can convince him to come to Old Trafford as they are from Norway. Manchester City needs a lethal number 9, and Chelsea might only buy him if other attacking players leave the club. Anyway, Raiola will only choose a club that presents a convincing project which will be best for Haaland’s future. Also, the club that gives the commission that he and Haaland’s father demands. So, the total prize for Haaland will be more than 100 million euros. But the team that gets him will not regret spending a massive amount in the future. Haaland is a generational talent!
