ERLING HAALAND’S agent Mino Raiola has sensationally hinted the Borussia Dortmund star will join Manchester City over United next summer – as they’re the bigger club.
The Norwegian striker, 21, is one of the hottest properties in world football.

The Leeds-born forward is even more likely to leave Dortmund next year after the Bundesliga giants failed to make it out of their Champions League group – instead dropping into the Europa League.
And now agent Raiola has confessed recent City’s title-winning pedigree has them in pole position to land his client.
Raiola told Sport 1: “Man City has won the championship five times in recent years, significantly more than United.
“We have been thinking for two years.
“We have clear ideas of where Haaland should go. We are not influenced by the market.
“We can influence [things] with a player like Haaland.
“It’s really a second game parallel to football… two days of matches and five of rumours.”
Raiola even name-dropped a few potential clubs – but refused to name Chelsea or United.
He continued: “He will take the next step. Bayern, Real, Barca, City – these are the big clubs he can go to.
“When? Maybe this summer, maybe next. But there is a big chance he‘ll leave this summer.”
Raiola continued by slating Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc – admitting he is always willing to ‘go to war’ for his clients.
The agent claimed: “I had a very bad relationship with Zorc – but now they respect me.
“I love to argue, despite not being a man in a suit and tie. I am fat and short.
“I can go to war for my players. I don’t use weapons, in any case.
“Money doesn’t drive me, but always dignity and ambition.”
