It’s happening, and it’s not even really a secret.
Today we’ve seen video footage of Mino Raiola and Erling Haaland’s father Alf-Inge in Barcelona and Madrid on a whistle-stop tour of Europe’s super clubs.
Next up, according to MundoDeportivo, but also according just to basic logic, is London.
There they will meet representatives from Liverpool, the two Manchester clubs… and Chelsea.
This really is dreamland for Raiola, who can openly tout his client around town and play the big spenders off against each other, all without annoying Borussia Dortmund, who knew exactly what they were signing up for in exchange for the incredible firepower Haaland has provided them.
Whether Chelsea want to get involved in the Italian super-agent’s grubby circus is another matter, but such is Haaland’s talent that it’s apparently worth considering for all these top teams.
How far the Blues are willing to go in terms of transfer fee and wages is uncertain after a big-spending 2020, but as they showed last summer, they aren’t afraid to open their wallet when they think they’re getting good value, no matter the price.
