Ajax Defender Could Be The Key To Landing Erling Haaland For Any Interested Club

Written By Onyeka Daniel

It is almost a given certainty that Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland will be leaving the club in the summer and joining a new team and the German side are said to be already shopping for his replacement.

More Details

With his release clause set to drop to €75 million in June, the chase to sign the Norwegian striker will be intense as the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are the leading candidates while the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also in contention.


It seems like convincing his agent, Mino Raiola is the key to signing Haaland and he (Raiola) has reportedly informed the interested parties of what it would take to sign the in-demand forward.

Raiola has reportedly told the interested clubs that they must also sign another one of his clients in Noussair Mazraoui, in order to strike an agreement. The 24-year-old Moroccan international is out of contract at Ajax in June meaning he is free to negotiate with other clubs.

The super agent is expected to demand considerable commission in agent fees, a condition the Blaugrana are also ready to meet if they can generate enough funds before the summer.

Manchester City are also expected to make a play for Haaland though after missing out on Harry Kane last summer. Pep Guardiola’s men have ploughed on without a recognised striker following the departure of Sergio Aguero.


Barcelona defender, Ronald Araujo has reportedly warned the club that he would accept nothing less than whatever the club is offering to their summer transfer target, Andres Christensen, if he is to stay with the club and sign a new deal.

Araujo has been a revelation for the club since last season and he has continued with the fine display in the current season but he is one of the lowest earners at the club and with a contract set to expire in 2023, the club is keen to tie him down to a new contract.

With the Blaugrana seeking for more defensive reinforcement, Christensen has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou and the club are prepared to offer him a €6 million annual salary plus sign on fees to join them and this could have a domino effect as Araujo wants the club to place him on the same salary too.

While the club have expressed their wish to keep him at the club for many years to come but they could be restricted by their current financial state, unless they’re able to bring in more funds between now and in the summer.
