Super agent Mino Raiola has suggested Manchester United transfer target Erling Haaland has proven his doubters wrong and could already be playing at a bigger club than Dortmund.

Raiola told The Athletic: “With Haaland, everybody was wrong. He did things much quicker than everybody imagined.

“Haaland is in front of his own development. 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.”
