Mino Raiola takes to Twitter to clarify Erling Haaland comments

Football super-agent Mino Raiola has taken to Twitter to clarify comments he made about his client, Erling Haaland, and his future.
The Norwegian has repeatedly been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund and has a £66 million release clause which can be activated from next summer, which is likely to spark a Europe-wide bidding war.
During an interview with German radio station SPORT1, Raiola claimed he had "clear ideas" where the free-scoring striker would be playing next season, name-dropping four clubs in particular as potential destinations for Haaland.
He said: "We have been thinking about his future for two years.
"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.
"Erling Haaland will take the next step. Bayern, Real, Barcelona, Man City - these are the big clubs he can join."
But the super-agent has taken to Twitter to address the comments he made, insisting that Haaland is focusing on football only and may not necessarily leave his current club at the end of the season.

He tweeted: "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 in the one after that."
Haaland has 11 goals from nine Bundesliga appearances so far.
