Mino Raiola has responded after Barcelona spoke about their interest in Erling Haaland, while Borussia Dortmund have no plans to let Julian Brandt leave in January.
Mino Raiola comments on Barcelona’s interest in Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola has denied speaking with Barcelona’s presidential candidate Emili Rousaud regarding the possibility of the 20 year old joining the Spanish club.
"“Fake news! I’ve never talked to any presidential candidate of Barcelona regarding Haaland and I won’t do. If there will be a new president elected in January, he can call me,” Raiola told Sport1."
Josep Maria Minguella, who will be appointed Barcelona sporting director if Emili Rousaud wins Barcelona’s presidential election in January, had earlier suggested that they have already held talks with Mino Raiola.
"Minguella was quoted as saying by AS, “We know all the conditions and if we win, the following day I will call Mino Raiola and we will accept those conditions. I have already advised him of that.”"
Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund in January 2020 and has three and a half years remaining on his current contract. Recently, the 20 year old spoke about his dream to help Borussia Dortmund win titles. And both his agent and his father have said in recent weeks that the striker is very happy at the club.
Borussia Dortmund do not want to sell Julian Brandt in January
Borussia Dortmund have no plans to let Julian Brandt leave the club in the winter transfer window, despite rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal. According to Sky Sport, the Black and Yellows do not want to give up any players in the middle of the season. So there is no chance of Brandt leaving in January. But Brandt and the BVB bosses will hold a conversation at the end of the season and then take a look at where they stand.
Julian Brandt joined Borussia Dortmund from Bayer Leverkusen on a five year contract in 2019. He has made 22 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
