Haaland will do something that makes the world look up: Ronaldo and Messi must also be behind

he heiress to Mino Raiola’s empire has given an interview to Gianluca Di Marzio

How far can Haaland go? The Norwegian’s progress has been spectacular. His start to the season with Manchester City has catapulted him to the top of world soccer.

It seems as though the striker has no limits both on the pitch and in terms of his market value. How much could he fetch?

Rafaela Pimenta, the heiress to Mino Raiola‘s empire, gave an interview to Gianluca Di Marzio on Sky Sport 24 in which she said that Haaland will reach unimagined heights

“He will be the first footballer to reach close to 1 billion euros in a transfer,” she said.

She also recognises that he is a player who is very driven, and focused only with his performance on the field.

“I think Haaland has a secret weapon: his father,” she stated.

“He doesn’t get excited, he doesn’t get lost and I don’t think he ever will. I’ve never seen a great player who only goes after money.

“That comes on its own.”

Contract with City

Rafaela Pimienta also referred to a possible renewal with Machester City and whether there will be talks soon: “I hope so, why not, if they want to talk about it, I’d be happy to do so.”

The agent was also questioned during the interview about the existence of a clause in the contract that would allow Haaland to leave City in 2024.

“The good thing about being a lawyer is that, when you are pressed on something, I can answer that as a lawyer I can’t talk about it…” she said.

Remembering Raiola

Rafaela Pimenta also paid tribute to Mino Raiola, who passed away in April. “The last words Mino said to me were the ones he always told me: ‘You must be happy. You mustn’t put your life on hold, you must do something that makes you feel good’.

“He was always very intense, but he was very present and always gave his opinion.

“Let’s say he was more explosive than me. Mino could get angry 30 times a day, I never do.”


Mbappe: Closer and closer to the Premier League?

His family has reportedly given permission for him to move to England

The departure of Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain continues to take shape. Although the Frenchman claimed that it is false that he has asked to leave in January, the reality is that he remains unhappy in Paris and his departure at the end of the season does become more possible.

Real Madrid is the dream destination for Kylian. However, at the club, his signing is no longer contemplated, at least for now. Florentino Perez has already indicated that all the news about Mbappe‘s departure bore him and he does not interest Los Blancos.

So, the only real escape route for the Frenchman is the Premier League. In fact, his family has already given the go-ahead for his move to England, according to L’Equipe. His uncle has reportedly indicated to Kylian that the Premier League “is the best destination for him”.

But which teams could sign Mbappe? The reality is that the Premier League has great economic power. There are several teams capable of being able to afford such an operation, especially two: Manchester City and Liverpool.

Play with Haaland or be the star at Anfield

The Citizens are coming off the back of signing Erling Haaland in the summer, so if they were to land Mbappe they would have two of the best players in the world.

However, it seems unlikely that they would put the two together at the moment, especially knowing the ego Mbappe has, wanting to be the star of the team.

On the other hand, Liverpool are the overwhelming favorite to land the Frenchman. Jurgen Klopp admires Mbappe and Mbappe would not turn his nose up at the idea of playing at Anfield.
