Mino Raiola slams ‘fake news’ about Man Utd transfer target Erling Haaland

Mino Raiola has labelled suggestions that Erling Haaland could join Barcelona as ‘fake news’.

The Borussia Dortmund is one of the most sought after players in Europe, after a stunning first 12-months in Germany.

Since joining the Bundesliga outfit in January of last year, Haaland has 33 goals in just 32 games, with clubs across the world keeping tabs.

Manchester United are one of those after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came close to signing his compatriot in 2019.

The United boss flew out to meet Haaland while he was with RB Salzburg, only for a potential move to hit a speed bump due to the insistence of a sell-on clause being added.

One year later, the Norwegian is set to cost significantly more, but that hasn’t ruled out the Red Devils making another approach.

Barcelona are another team heavily linked with Haaland, with presidential hopeful Emil Rousad’s aide claiming they would sign him, if he wins this month’s election.

Josep Maria Minguella told AS: "We know all the conditions and if we win, the following day I will call Mino Raiola and we will accept those conditions. I have already advised him of that.

"We have a world-class sports project that is not showing just now, but Emili Rousaud has a plan that will turn this unfortunate situation (at Barcelona) around.”

However, Raiola, who has incurred the wrath of Old Trafford bosses for his comments regarding Paul Pogba’s future, has claimed he has made no contact with the La Liga giants.

Speaking to Sport1, Raiola said: “Fake news. I’ve never talked to any presidential candidate of Barcelona regarding Haaland and I won’t do.

"If there will be a new president elected in January, he can call me.”
