ERLING HAALAND’s agent Mino Riola has hinted that the goal machine could deal a major blow to Manchester United at Borussia Dortmund.
The shocking statement comes just days after Norwegian sensation Dortmund said goodbye to fans.
The 21-year-old, one of European football’s most wanted men with heavyweight clubs including the Red Devils, Real Madrid and Barcelona – is eyeing his signature.
Haaland shook supporters after Dortmund’s 3-0 win over Firth last Wednesday – their last home match of the year.
Borussia director Michael Zork dismissed it as nothing. And Raiola has backed it up with her latest comments.
The super-agent told NOS: “Can Haaland wait for Barcelona?
He said, ‘He can wait for anyone. We do not have any prior agreement with any club.
“We will look for the best option for him and I cannot rule out another year at Dortmund. Theoretically, it is still possible.”

Journalists in Germany picked up on Hollande’s wave and questioned Dortmund officials after their 3-2 loss to Hertha Berlin on Saturday.
Sporting director Zorc said: “I saw the pictures afterwards as well.
“It sounded a little strange, but I don’t think it was a deliberate action.
“I spoke to him again briefly, and it is not an issue in the team either.
“‘What is this?’ I asked him. He said, ‘Absolutely nothing. That settles the matter.’
Fellow Dortmund director Hans-Joachim Watzke also suggested the striker could stay in Germany for at least one more season after a ‘positive call with Raiola’.
He told Bild: “It doesn’t matter where you go, everyone talks about Erling Haaland.
“The only thing I know is that Real Madrid are very interested in signing him.
“I can tell you the names of the other 25 teams, but I know for a fact that Madrid are interested.”

Watzke said: “He can leave, but he can also stay.
“I spoke to Mino Raiola a few days ago and the phone call was very positive.
“We’ll talk again in the coming weeks.”
