ERLING HAALAND’S agent Mino Raiola has hinted the goal machine might stay at Borussia Dortmund in a huge blow to Manchester United.
The shock statement comes just days after the Norwegian sensation appearing to wave goodbye to Dortmund fans.
Haaland waved to supporters after Dortmund’s 3-0 win over Furth last Wednesday – their last home match of the year.
Borussia director Michael Zorc dismissed it as nothing. And Raiola has as good as backed that up with his latest comments.
The super-agent told NOS: “Could Haaland wait for Barcelona?
“He can wait for anybody. We don’t have a pre-agreement with any club.
“We’ll look for the best option for him and I can’t rule out another year at Dortmund. Theoretically, that’s still possible.”

Reporters in Germany picked up on Haaland’s wave and questioned Dortmund officials following their 3-2 defeat by Hertha Berlin on Saturday.
Sporting director Zorc said: “I saw the pictures afterwards too.
“It looked a bit strange, but I don’t think it was a deliberate action.
“I spoke to him again briefly, and that’s not an issue in the team either.
“‘What is this?’ I asked him. ‘Nothing at all’, er sagte. That settles the matter.”
Fellow Dortmund director Hans-Joachim Watzke also suggested the striker could stay in Germany for at least another season after a ‘positive call with Raiola’.
Er sagte Build: “It doesn’t matter where you go, everyone talks about Erling Haaland.
“The only thing I know is that Real Madrid are very interested in his signing.
“I could name you other 25 Teams, but I know for a fact that Madrid are interested.”

Watzke added: “He might leave, but he might stay also.
“I talked to Mino Raiola a few days ago and the phone call was very positive.
“We will likely talk again in the upcoming weeks.”
