A number of top European clubs have been linked with a summer move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Besides Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are the three other Premier League sides interested in signing Haaland. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the 20-year-old.

According to Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola, clubs have been wrong about Haaland, claiming that the 20-year-old had been underestimated and he’s now way ahead of schedule.

“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.”
