Mino Raiola has revealed that only four Premier League clubs can sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and insisted that the sought-after star is like the Lewis Hamilton of football.
The super agent represents Borussia Dortmund’s prolific forward, who is attracting serious interest from several of Europe’s powerhouses.
Real Madrid and Manchester United are two of the clubs who have been regularly linked with a move for the 20-year-old since missing out on him last January when he swapped Red Bull Salzburg for Dortmund.

Haaland has attracted huge interest after his astonishing rate of scoring at Borussia Dortmund
Haaland has been touted for a mega-money move this summer despite Dortmund’s desperate hopes of clinging on to him for another season, and Raiola has revealed that a number of Premier League clubs are in the race to sign him.
‘It is obvious that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it’s so difficult to do what he does at his age at his level,’ he told the BBC.
‘He will be one of the future stars of the next decade because we see that stars such as Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Messi are coming to an age where everyone asks themselves: “How long can we still enjoy them?” So everyone is looking for the new generation.

Haaland’s astonishing career stats
‘Only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] and give the platform you would like after you’ve been in Dortmund… and four of those clubs are in [England].
‘I don’t think there’s a sports director or trainer in the world who would say ‘not interested’. It’s like saying: ‘Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?’
Haaland has been widely tipped to become football’s next big star alongside PSG’s Kylian Mbappe when Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi call time on their illustrious careers.
The Norwegian has been in potent form ever since bursting onto the scene as a teenager at Salzburg and has scored an astonishing 43 goals in 43 games since moving to Dortmund last year.
As well as United and Madrid, Liverpool and Barcelona have also been heavily linked with signing the 20-year-old striker.
Recent reports suggest that Dortmund could be swayed by bids for Jadon Sancho this summer but will do their utmost to keep hold of Haaland, despite the possibility of missing out on Champions League football next season.
