Mino Raiola delivers new Erling Haaland transfer message
'We have clear ideas about where he should go and, of course, we look at what the market will offer.'
Erling Haaland's agent Mino Raiola has claimed that he has "clear ideas" about where the striker will be playing his football next year.
The Norwegian is one of the most sought-after players in world football at the moment, attracting interesting from a host of Europe's top clubs.
Premier League sides Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all thought to be interested in signing the prolific frontman, with Real Madrid and Barcelona regularly mentioned as well.
A release clause in Haaland's contract is somewhat common knowledge and super-agent Raiola is currently plotting his client's next move.
"We have been thinking about his future for two years," Raiola told SPORT1. "We have clear ideas about where he should go and, of course, we look at what the market will offer.
"With a player like him, we can influence the market, we will not be influenced.
"I changed the transfer market and today we agents have created a new game alongside football: the transfer market. Today two days a week we talk about football, in the other five about the transfer market."

The former RB Salzburg man has been in scintillating form since his move to Borussia Dortmund in January 2020, registering 74 goals and 26 assists in 76 appearances.
Following suggestions that United interim manager Ralf Rangnick - who played a role in signing the striker at Salzburg - could use his relationship with Haaland to negotiate a move for the striker, the German was quick to clear up such rumours.
He said: "This is nonsense obviously, just to answer the second question. Of course, there are no such clauses."
Haaland will be in action for Dortmund when they travel to Bochum on Saturday, hoping to bounce back from the disappointing defeat in the Der Klassiker last weekend.
