OPINION: Raiola’s Barcelona stunt reminded Manchester United of what they’re signing up for
t shouldn’t have been much of a surprise, but images of Mino Raiola and Alf-Inge Haaland arriving in Barcelona on Thursday were enough to send shock waves across Europe.
Alf-Inge’s son is probably the most talked about player in world football at the moment and his future looks set to be the transfer story of the summer window.
Manchester United are one of the sides with a genuine interest in the player, although competition is set to be fierce for a player who is clearly a generational talent.
As was the case with Jadon Sancho last year, Borussia Dortmund are playing hardball and remain adamant that their star asset is not for sale. Just like last summer, teams still a believe a deal can be done – although it will likely come at an enormous fee.
