ERLING HAALAND’S dad reportedly hid in a TOILET for 30 minutes to try and keep transfer talks with Barcelona a secret.
The Borussia Dortmund striker’s father Alf Inge was spotted at Barcelona El-Prat Airport on Thursday morning with agent Mino Raiola.But Alf-Inge (left) was spotted coming out of the airport despite his best efforts at being kept undetected[/caption]
But according to AS, the German’s transfer talks were supposed to go undetected.
The plan was for Raiola to exit the airport, drag the cameras away and allow Alf-Inge to leave without hassle.
But that never materialised as the ex-Manchester City defender was caught by the press, leading to wild speculation his son may be on his way to the Nou Camp.
And there are also said to be three other clubs in the running to sign the Norwegian sensation.
It is thought Dortmund will be asking for a price in the region of £150million if he is to move this summer.
His release clause of £65m comes into play at the end of next season, but clubs hoping to wait 12 months in order to get him for a cut price may lose out if he is signed this year.
