Raiola backtracks over Haaland’s next move – but still winds up Man Utd fans

Superagent Mino Raiola has backtracked on his comments about Erling Haaland's potential destinations next summer – but left out Manchester United again.

When asked about Haaland's potential moves, he failed to mention United for a second time – although he did include Liverpool and Chelsea.

When asked about his client's next destination by Sport1, Raiola said: “Bayern [Munich], Real [Madrid], Barcelona, [Manchester] City – these are the big clubs he can go to.

"City have won the championship five times in recent years, significantly more than United.

"When we moved to [Borussia] Dortmund, we all knew that this step would come.”

Raiola went on to add: “Maybe this summer, maybe the summer after. But there is a great chance that Erling will leave this summer.”

However, Raiola has now expanded on his comments on Twitter: "I want to clarify the following about the Sport1 interview.

"The four clubs I mentioned about Haaland's future were just an example to say that, when he leaves, he will go to one of the top 15 European clubs.

"Now Erling's focus is solely on football, there are no negotiations with any club.

"And I reaffirm what I said – it's not a sure thing that he will leave this summer, maybe it will be the one after that."

However, Raiola then failed to mention United again when speaking to Gerard Romero.

"I mentioned Barcelona as potential example of new club for Haaland… it doesn’t mean he’ll go to one of the clubs I mentioned yesterday.

"I can mention many other clubs for Haaland: Real, Barça, Atlético [Madrid], Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool…"

One fan responded: "Lol and still didn't mention Man Utd. May have seen Ralf's [Rangnick] comments yesterday so acting salty."

"Hahaha still didn’t mention United the bitterness is class," another fumed.

Haaland is Europe's most in-demand striker, and his reported £75million release clause will come into play over the summer.

The Norwegian has bagged 51 goals in 51 Bundesliga appearances since he swapped his Red Bull Salzburg's red and white for Dortmund's yellow.

However, the Champions League is where Haaland saves his best performances, and the 22-year-old has 23 goals in 19 games.
