Tue 30 March 2021 | 11:07

Haaland’s agent believes the talented striker can shine at any club he plays for.

Erling Haaland'

s brilliant performance for

Dortmund

has made many European giants like

Real Madrid

,

Manchester City

,

Liverpool

and … seek to sign the Norwegian prodigy.

The 20-year-old star, who has made 31 appearances for the BVB in all competitions, has scored 33 goals and is already being compared to superstars like

Lionel Messi

and

Cristiano Ronaldo

.

Haaland has been linked with some of the European giants in recent weeks, however, his agent

Mino Raiola

believes the Norway international is good enough to go to any club he wants.

In an interview with

The Athletic

, Raiola said:

"With Haaland, everybody was wrong. He did things much quicker than everybody imagined. Haaland is in front of his own development.

"He is ahead of his own schedule. Maybe I was too careful when I said: ‘Oh no, let’s move to Dortmund instead of I-don’t-know-where’.

"This boy — I’m 100 per cent convinced and everybody’s convinced — can move to any club, wherever he wants, already on this level. And he could have done that last year. But maybe last year there were still teams [saying]: 'Oh, he was in Red Bull, can he do it in another club?’.

"He is quicker than his own prediction. So yeah, Haaland is the talk of the town.

"I have the advantage of 25 years in the business at this level. I have changed the game, from an economical side, more than once. I don’t get excited any more about that kind of thing. I know to wait. This is a moment of waiting and seeing what is in the best interest of the player.

"Sometimes the best interest of the player is not to move when everybody says he has to move. And sometimes it is in the best interest of the player to move when everybody says he has to stay. So we will see what happens."
