Erling Haaland has been smashing every record in the Premier League this season. He continues to be Manchester City’s star man, but a future exit to Real Madrid still awaits him. His agent believes she has a plan ready if he ever wants to leave the club.
Haaland to Leave City?
Erling Haaland’s agent Rafael Pimenta has claimed that the forward has the “key to the door” whenever he decides his time is up at Manchester City. The Brazilian lawyer inherited Mino Raiola’s empire following his untimely death in April of last year, but has been responsible for every contract in the company for the previous 25 years.
“I am in favour of freedom. It’s my battle,” Haaland’s agent told Spanish outlet AS. “I always say that one of my priorities as an agent is to offer the player what I call ‘the key to the door’. When a player goes to a club, I do everything I can to create the conditions for the key to the door to be in his hands.
“And if tomorrow you can’t stand being there anymore because you don’t like it, or you’re not paid well, or because your wife wants to live in Paris? Then you leave, right? I don’t like it when my player is not free to decide. I’ve done every contract in this agency for the last 25 years. There wasn’t a single time a player said ‘I want to leave’ and couldn’t do it.”
Haaland has a long contract at City and will continue to be the star man for years. Real Madrid are not in the race to sign him for now, but they are expected to be in the coming years.
