Despite serious financial difficulties the Barça does not seem to have said his last word. The Catalan club wants to enter the race to enlist one of the biggest stars of football, by putting sticks in the wheels to rivals like PSG, Real Madrid or Manchester City.
Barça Mercato: Barcelona also want Haaland!
The summer of 2022 is likely to be at least as hectic as that of this year. And for good reason, the two football wonderkids, Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland seem more than ever close to a departure from their respective clubs, PSG and Borussia Dortmund. If the Frenchman is doing the business of Real Madrid, which makes him his number 1 target during the next summer transfer window, for the Norwegian striker, the file promises to be even more sulphurous. In addition to Real Madrid (which wants to bring together the two jewels in its workforce) and Manchester City, it is now Barça who wants to get out of the game in the case.
As the Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona would closely follow the situation of the Dortmund striker, with a view to taking action this summer. The Blaugrana leaders have a very good relationship with the player’s agent, Mino raiola. A considerable advantage over other contenders. The key for the Blaugranas would then be to save in January to obtain the necessary budget to enlist the Norwegian star (we are talking about a sum between 75 and 90 million euros).
Man City keep their distance on the case
Untouchable this summer, Erling Haaland now wants to leave. His release clause has dropped considerably, and his club is no longer closed to letting go of its jewel in exchange for a nice offer. While several clubs are fighting a fierce battle to recruit the 21-year-old striker, Manchester city all the same seems to have the pole position.
According to the latest trends from England, the Skyblues have already scheduled an interview with Haaland representatives. A significant option that the English team is taking over its competitors. The equipment manufacturer Puma that club and player have in common, could also play a big role in the operation.
