Mino Raiola rounds off the angles. The powerful Italian-Dutch agent had to make an update after unflattering comments about Ligue 1, which could be seen as an obstacle to a possible signing at Paris Saint-Germain of his coveted client Erling Haaland. The statement in question was made in an interview released on Saturday by AS, in which he was asked if the Norwegian crack preferred the Premier League or La Liga.

The answer as transcribed by the Spanish newspaper is the following: “When clubs like Barça or Real Madrid arrive, with their history so great, it’s hard to say no. PSG enters this group of big clubs, City too and Juve have always been. What also matters is their league. PSG play in the worst league of the greats. Bayern are in an attractive league, but we know they are winning all the time. In Spain there are three options “.

In a few hours, these words obviously crossed the Pyrenees. This prompted Mino Raiola to publish an explanatory message on his Twitter account in the evening: “I would like to point out that I congratulated PSG. PSG is already one of the elite clubs of European football. They become historic for what they accomplish. My point of view on PSG is demonstrated by the great players I was able to accompany there, by those who play today and also by those who will play there in the future. Commentary on Ligue 1 reflects a commonplace in football. However, this is not my personal opinion, given the competitiveness of the league in recent seasons.

The door remains open for PSG

Mino Raiola, who notably worked for the transfers of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Maxwell or Thiago Silva at the beginning of the Qatari era of the Parisian club, also took care to keep the door open for his other clients: “PSG has a great attraction for all the top players I represent. Players who would all consider joining the club if the opportunity arose. “

The agent, well known for his remarkable media outings, concluded with a tackle to the media of France: “I find it very strange that the French press only amplified this sentence on the championship, but not the multitude of compliments made at PSG. “

In the meantime, Erling Haaland, often cited on the side of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Manchester City, has a contract until June 2024 at Borussia Dortmund. But it seems certain that a release clause estimated at 75 million euros can be activated during the summer transfer window of 2022.
