Erling Haaland's agent Mino Raiola has hit back at suggestions that he drew up a mammoth list of demands for clubs interested in signing the Borussia Dortmund star.

Spanish publication Sport sparked rumours earlier this week after posting pictures of Alf-Inge Haaland and Raiola arriving in Barcelona. The report observed that the pair had been met by Joan Laporta's assistant at the airport.

The report also claimed that the super-agent had laid down a set of demands for any club interested in the 20-year-old, with him demanding £17m in "agent's fees", and Haaland looking for a salary of more than £25m-a-year net.

However, Raiola took to Twitter to dismiss the reports and said: "fake news travels quick and far."

Raiola had previously admitted that his client would stay at Dortmund until next season, but also insisted that "things are changing quickly". "He has to continue to grow. He will stay in Dortmund for as long as is necessary," he told Marca.

A number of top clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona, and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the talented striker. However, AS reported earlier this week that Real Madrid will not make an offer for Haaland in the upcoming transfer window, as they want to avoid getting into a bidding war with other interested clubs.
