Mino Raiola ‘wants Erling Haaland to be the first ever £1MILLION-per-week footballer’ after embarking on grand European tour with the player’s father to ramp up bidding war… but can anyone even afford that eye-watering fee?
- Mino Raiola is hoping to make Erling Haaland the first ever £1m-per-week player
- The Mirror have claimed the demands will rule a host of clubs out of the chase
- Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG have all been tipped to match the figure
- Raiola and Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, recently met Barcelona and Real Madrid
Mino Raiola has set his sights on making Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland the first ever footballer to net £1million-per-week, according to reports.
The super-agent has already sparked arguably this summer’s biggest transfer saga – with a number of elite clubs circling to snap up the in-demand Haaland.
But The Mirror have now claimed that Raiola holds grand plans of brokering an eye-watering amount for his client through a sensational overall package.
Mino Raiola reportedly wants to make Erling Haaland the first ever £1million-a-week footballer
With a huge basic salary in store, image rights, digital opportunities and commercial deals have all been earmarked in the report as ways of reaching the target.
Raiola’s demands are said to likely rule out the majority of clubs embroiled in the dogfight to sign Haaland except for a handful with enviable finances.
Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG have all been identified as the only suitors who would be able to stump up the cash.

Barcelona and Madrid officials recently met with Raiola and Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, on a whistle-stop tour of potential destinations for the 20-year-old.
The Mirror quote the two clubs as having been left ‘shocked’ after Raiola told them about his proposal for one of the world’s finest young talents.
City, as well as Premier League rivals Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, are also believed to be in the chase to secure Haaland’s signature.
The Norway international is thought to have been tipped by Raiola to usurp Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in his quest to become the finest forward in football.
A number of elite clubs are poised to try and snap up the £154m-rated Haaland this summer
And it is this staunch belief from the representative that has left everyone involved under the impression that the deal will be one of the biggest in history.
Insiders have also told the Mirror that Haaland’s contract may well end up being one of the most ‘complex’ ever seen.
Dortmund, however, are reportedly holding out for £154m for their prized asset and are said to have reminded Raiola over the phone that Haaland is not up for sale.
The club’s stance was echoed by comments from CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
Raiola recently branded a host of news stories on Haaland as ‘fake’ as speculation continues
‘We don’t have a parallel plan. We’ll discuss this with Erling, his father and his agent Mino Raiola in peace,’ Watzke told Goal.
‘We also want him to stay with us, to score goals for BVB next year with conviction. There is no alternative plan.’
The fervent speculation engulfing his client triggered Raiola to criticise reports as ‘fake’ despite jetting out to Spain to ramp up the bidding war.
Haaland has netted 39 goals in 42 games for club and country this season.
