Raiola eager to spark auction for Man Utd, Man City target Haaland - over his commission!

The future of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is coming into sharp focus ahead of the January market.

The Sunday World says while a move from Borussia Dortmund in the upcoming January transfer window seems highly unlikely, Manchester United and Manchester City are among those now pushing to sign a pre-contract agreement with the striker.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are also in the mix to sign Haaland, with the Spanish giants desperate to sign the 21-year-old if they can find a way to fund the deal.

Now Haaland's agent Mino Raiola is preparing to start a bidding war for his star client, who can leave Dortmund for cut-price €75million next summer.

Raiola is expected to demand a huge signing on fee, vast wages and a huge agent fee to finalise what will be one of the biggest transfers of 2022.

Despite Manchester United's persistent interest in Haaland, it seems Raiola has his sights set on moving the player to a club with a more recent record of trophy succes.
