Mino Raiola takes a swipe at Manchester United regarding Erling Haaland
The Red Devils missed out on the goalscoring phenom twice in the past and are amongst those who are now keen to sign him. Haaland has developed into a goalscoring machine and is amongst Europe’s top strikers at the age of just 20.
United were the favourites to land Haaland while he was still at RB Salzburg. The club was in touch with Raiola but pulled out, only for Dortmund to swoop in. (h/t The Express)
Haaland has repaid the German giants’ faith in him and has so far scored 49 goals and 11 assists in just 49 appearances. (h/t Transfermarkt)
“With Haaland, everybody was wrong.”
Raiola admits that Haaland’s performances have exceeded his own schedule and says he may have been overcautious in recommending his client to join Dortmund. A year on, he can now choose the club he wants given a prolific stint in Germany.
“Maybe I was too careful when I said, ‘Oh no, let’s move to Dortmund instead of I-don’t-know-where.”
Truth or fiction?
The pair fell out during Pogba’s initial departure from United to Juventus in 2012. Raiola has now revealed that he did not want to take Pogba away but may have been forced due to Ferguson’s lack of faith in the player.
“I didn’t want to take Paul Pogba away. He (Ferguson) didn’t believe in Paul Pogba.”

Raiola is one of the biggest names when it comes to football agents today. As a club of United’s stature, it is inevitable that we will have to deal with him when it comes to signing some of the game’s top talents.
It would appear we may have to dance with the devil once again this summer. However, we will need to take care that he doesn’t tread on our toes when it comes to that.
