Hope we do, I genuinely do but I just can’t personally see it unless his heart rules over his agent. Apparently though Raiola isn’t his agent, he was brought in to help negotiate with Dortmund so we may not actually have to negotiate with him! If true then I may change my thinking.

i heard it was his last year as a agent working with haaland and will be free to get new team or renew a deal
city/pep don't get on with raiola and not many do by the look of it. but i will say if haaland has set his heart on playing for manchester city the people behind him should not really have much of a say or haaland should get rid

i don't know how agents got so much power in football with players ? the governing bodies should get this sorted stop losing money in fees from football ? plus the controlling of movements and say over clubs.. also a contract is between the player and club and once signed its only broken by the player asking for a move in writing

pimping or tapping up by agents should be taken out of the game with a 12 month ban or lifetime bans if proven
like i said once the deal is signed by a player and club the agent should have nothing more to do with the player football wise

I agree, but then logic says he doesn't want to join us. If he did, the club would have made it happen. The fact we didn't try means either he we don't want it.

Hopefully that changes next year, but being realistic, doubt there is anything to cling to.
Agree with that too

Dortmund really don’t like city. No chance they do us any favours and raiola will want the end of season auction.

There’s really not much of an auction that could happen I guess Madrid if they want both

United have Ronaldo
Chelsea have Lukaku
Barca are skint
Madrid want Mbappe
Bayern have Lewandowski still

Who’s left really

I don't know what you mean? It's my opinion and if I'm wrong then that's kinda the point of a forum so you can tell me why. I don't need to be right.


I just don't see the other players being arsed to be honest, especially if it improves their chances of winning something.

As with anyone really, you can't have a team get you to where you are then introduce someone has contributed, at that point, zero to what they have and the pay them double. It's a slap in the face and it also sets a domino effect of them saying well I want the same wages.
I agree, smashing the wage structure with a new arrival can be very damaging to team spirit, especially when that new arrival has won fuck all and is joining a team full of multiple title winners.

not really here
tbh I agree with him.
Rubbish...its happened with messi at psg, ronaldo at the rags, zlatan wherever he plays normally, etc etc etc. None of those squads players will take issue. The problem is when players like pogba, sanchez, ozil, etc get insane money...

If you are a proven hitman then you are above the basic squad wage. This has literally always been the case in football.
It would fuck me off. someone new, more money, AND he's better than me. Thats affects people, affects mood and commitment to the club, it just does, thats life.

As Pep said, harmony in the dressing room is a most important thing especially around wages. Remember Pogbas agent demanding more when Sanchez came in? It happens and all people are different but cliques and unhappy groups of people in the dressing room is something all the best managers take care of.

Just can't see it being that big of an issue.

How could anyone dislike haaland though...he's such a funny lad. Harmony would remain. Nobody in their right mind goes into the managers office when they get maybe 5-10 goals per season and demand parity with a 30+ goals per season scoring machine of haalands caliber. It just woudln't happen and even if it did, they are a wrong en and move them on.

The best teams to have ever existed have always had superstars on big money compared to the average squad player. Pep himself managed one such team.

Do you think Zinny takes issue he doesn't earn what Kev does?
