Mino Raiola says a move to FC Barcelona for his client and Borussia Dortmund youngster Erling Haaland is 'complicated, but not impossible'.

Haaland is considered as one of the best young footballers in the world, and he has emerged as a transfer target for almost all of Europe's top clubs, with Barcelona also said to be keen on signing the Norwegian.

"It’s complicated but not impossible," Raiola told AS, when they said it's harder for Barcelona to sign the 20-year-old. "This is the work of a club director. It’s equal for all clubs and players. The train passes and what do you do? Catch it or don’t catch it. That’s the big question."

Prior to stating that, Raiola was asked if Real Madrid can afford Haaland, to which he responded: "I don't know if they can afford him, because I've haven't studied their books. But I think they can. I think they all can. The question is different: Can Madrid afford not to buy Haaland? And Barça?"

Meanwhile, Haaland has been impressive for Dortmund since joining the Bundesliga side in the January transfer window of 2020, and he has scored 37 goals from 38 appearances across all competitions for the German giants so far this season.
