“He can call me” – Mino Raiola sends message to Barcelona presidential candidate following transfer claim

The agent of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has responded to some surprise transfer rumours that have emerged over a possible agreement over a move to Barcelona.

Mino Raiola has denied that Haaland has an agreement to join Barcelona, which was claimed in a report from Marca, citing a hint from one of Barcelona’s presidential candidates Emili Rousaud.

The Norway international would undoubtedly be an exciting signing for Barca, but it’s unclear from Marca’s report where they got the idea from that he’s the player who’s being targeted by the Catalan giants.

Raiola has now hit back at the speculation, though he also seemed open to talking with whoever wins the Barcelona presidency, in what could be taken as a message of encouragement over pursuing Haaland.

Haaland is surely set for a big move before too long after his superb performances at Dortmund.
