Erling Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola says that only four clubs in England can afford the Borussia Dortmund star in the summer amid Liverpool transfer links.

Haaland has caught the attention of many top clubs as the 20-year-old has been in an impressive form for the Bundesliga side. The youngster has scored 27 goals in 25 appearances and provided 7 assists during this season.

The 20-year-old has been linked with moves to several clubs including Liverpool.

Speaking to the BBC, Haaland’s agent Raiola said: “The problem that I feel you have in England is, whenever I say my opinion – an opinion I have – everybody in England goes berserk and I’m the worst agent or the best. It doesn’t matter, 50 per cent love me, 50 per cent hate me – or 80 per cent hate me, 20 per cent love me.

“Clubs get so much stress and so stressed by the public and journalists that I’ve learned not to talk so much about it.

“It’s obvious, though, that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential future stars because it’s so difficult to do what he does at his age at this level that he’ll be one of the future stars of the next decade.

“We see that stars like Ibrahimovic, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are coming into an age where everyone asks themselves how long we can still enjoy them, so everyone is looking for the next generation.

“It’s obvious that only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy him from Dortmund. We can all fill in those clubs and four of those clubs are in your beautiful country.

“You can fill them in, call them and ask if they’d be interested. I think there’s not a sporting director or trainer in the world who’d say they wouldn’t be interested.

“It’s like saying: ‘Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?'”
