Haaland camp praised for 'making right choice' as Liverpool given green light


Erling Haaland’s camp has been praised for always choosing the club that’s best for him in the past.

And it’s because his advisors have previously been so successful that Haaland’s first coach at Bryne FK, Alf Ingve Berntsen, believes they’ll make the correct call again in this summer’s transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund star Haaland is tipped to complete a £150million transfer in the summer – but where he will go is anyone’s guess.

His dad Alf-Inge and his agent Mino Raiola went to see some potential buyers just last week and were spotted flying into Barcelona from Nice to speak with club president Joan Laporta.

They later headed to the Spanish capital to chat with Real Madrid chiefs before flying to the UK to hold similar meetings with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Man United.

There is an argument for every one of these clubs potentially signing Haaland, with Chelsea and United among the candidates who can afford the Norwegian’s contract demands, and City holding sentimental value, given Alf-Inge represented them.

But Haaland is still no closer to making a final decision on his next club and will likely see out this campaign with Dortmund, who are still competitive in the Champions League, before making an announcement.

Haaland’s first coach Berntsen would like the striker to join Liverpool as this is his team.

But he too has no inclination as to where the forward will end up. He only knows that it will likely be the ‘right choice’ for Haaland given his track record in the transfer market to this point.

“If I had to decide, I’d go for Liverpool because that’s my club – but I don’t decide,” Berntsen told BBC 5 LIVE.

“I don’t have a clue what they will do, Erling and his team have made very good choices and shown great knowledge in choosing the club that’s best for him in the past.”
