Popular football agent, Mino Raiola has named four big clubs who have the opportunity of buying prolific Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland. During his speech, Mini named FC Barcelona, FC Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester City, also adding that Manchester City are far more suitable and a bigger club than Manchester United.

Ahead of Manchester City’s premier league game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Pep Guardiola was interrupted with a question about Erling Haaland , and he said that he would not be providing an answer on the Dortmund striker.

The club he’s managing which is Manchester City was among those named by agent Mino Raiola as one of four ‘big clubs’ that could sign the Norwegian superstar, with their recent success compared to United being noted, as they were bracketed with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich.

The Spanish coach publicly praised Haaland last season when City faced them in a two legged champions league semi final, and the Blues were interested in buying the player before it quickly became clear that his club had no interest in selling him after confirming a top-four finish.

The popular football agent Mino Raiola made headlines on Friday with his latest comments that suggest Haaland could well move in the next summer transfer window.

But it was unfortunate that before the City manager could be asked about the update he moved the conversation on as he maintained his form for not talking about the transfer market or players at other clubs.

The blue side of the city of Manchester, spent and wasted majority of the last window pursuing Tottenham striker Harry Kane and received encouragement that a deal could be struck with chairman Daniel Levy.

It was unfortunate only to have the rug pulled from under them when Kane confirmed he was staying with a week left in the transfer window.

They also had a late interest in one of football big names Cristiano Ronaldo, which only materialised in the Juventus striker joining neighbours, United, and the lack of a No.9 has forced City to adapt their game.
