Mino Raiola says he was perhaps ‘too careful’ in urging Erling Haaland to join Borussia Dortmund, insisting the striker can now join any club he wants.

Haaland has established himself as one of the best strikers in Europe at 20 years old with Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid all in the race to sign the Norway international this summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coached Haaland during his breakthrough at Molde and tried to bring him to Old Trafford last season while the striker was at Red Bull Salzburg.

Haaland instead joined Dortmund however where he has scored 49 goals in 49 appearances for the club.

The striker’s progress has even surprised Raiola, who says his client could have joined one of Europe’s immediately from Salzburg instead of first proving himself at Dortmund.

And the super-agent says Haaland has earned the right to now join any club he wants.

‘With Haaland, everybody was wrong. He did things much quicker than everybody imagined. Haaland is in front of his own development,’ Raiola told The Athletic.

‘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.’
