Mino Raiola forcing Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland this summer with 2022 threat

Agent Mino Raiola has urged Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Haaland this summer or face the Norwegian striker joining rivals Bayern Munich next year.

Haaland remains a transfer target for a number of top European clubs ahead of the upcoming window and Raiola is doing everything in his power to force through a move.

The 20-year-old has been in sensational form every since signing for Dortmund and has scored a remarkable 53 goals in 56 appearances for the club.

It's this goalscoring form that has seen outside interest continue to grow, though the German giants are in no rush to begin discussing a potential sale of their star striker.

But Dortmund may soon be forced to reconsider following news that Raiola wants Haaland out of the club as soon as possible and will ensure that the youngster will join Bayern Munich in 2022 if he is not granted permission to leave this summer.

In recent years, Dortmund have become all too familiar with losing key players to their Bundesliga rivals and will want to avoid a repeat of this.

Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski are three players who have all completed such a move in recent seasons, weakening Dortmund to Bayern's benefit.

Despite Raiola's latest efforts to escalate this transfer saga, Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke recently insisted that the club are under no pressure to offload star players.

"When Covid-19 struck, we had no debt. Not one euro. Because of that, it is a comfortable situation. We do not have to sell a player. That is important," Watzke told BBC Sport.

"The rich clubs in the world, they must know when they want a player from Borussia Dortmund there are two possibilities. The first is that I tell them they have no chance. Other times, I will tell them 'this is the price'. Then they must know this is the price. It is not another price."
