Why Mino Raiola Prevented Haaland from Joining Man united

According to Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke, Mino Raiola urged Erling Braut Haaland away from joining Manchester United in January 2020.
During his time at Red Bull Salzburg, the Norwegian striker was heavily connected with Manchester United, but he eventually joined Dortmund from the Austrian club.

In 69 appearances for BVB in all competitions, the 21-year-old has scored 70 goals, and a number of clubs, including the Red Devils, are anticipated to battle for his signature next summer.

Watzke claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side made a “better offer” for Haaland, but his agent Raiola believed the Norwegian would be “better placed” in Germany.

“The offer from Manchester United was better,” Watzke told Sport1 . “However Mino Raiola realised that Erling is better off with us.

“People notice that gifted people make a breakthrough with us the quickest. That is a resounding argument for the players, the parents of the players and the advisors. We have no inhibitions about letting 17-year-olds play.”

Haaland has 13 goals in 10 games for Dortmund this season, but he is projected to miss the rest of the season due to a hip flexor injury.
