Mino Raiola revealed that there is a big chance that Erling Haaland will leave Borussia Dortmund this season. There is reportedly a £64m release clause in the striker’s contract with a number of possible suitors out there. Haaland has a contract that runs until the summer of 2024 but the Norweigan confirmed that he will discuss his future at the end of the season.
“We all knew when we moved to Dortmund that this step would come.” Mino Raiola said about Erling Haaland. “He can and will take the next step. Bayern, Real, Barcelona, City – these are the big clubs he can go to. City has won the championship five times in the last few years, much more than United. We will tell BVB [Borussia Dortmund] what our idea is and BVB will tell us their ideas. But no decision will be made in the winter.”
“He is someone who wants to develop, who is looking for new challenges. And of course, it’s also a question of the alternative. You only change if you have a better alternative.” he added. “Whatever is in a contract is in a contract. That remains between me and the player. There are only two parties who are allowed to say something to the outside world – the club and the player. I never talk about details. We and Dortmund know exactly what has to happen. We have structured it very clearly. Contract or not, we always have very open communication with [Hans-Joachim] Watzke, [Michael] Zorc, and now [Sebastian] Kehl. We deal with each other honestly.”
