In the FC Barcelona they have begun to overcome the pain over the departure of Lionel Messi after twenty-one years. It has helped the overwhelming victory against Real Sociedad last Sunday at the Camp Nou (4-2) and also the fact that the president Joan Laporta I already thought of a level replacement, who, like the Argentine forward of the PSG, I marked an era in the Catalan institution. Crack there are many, but hardly anyone as lethal in the area as Erling haaland, by which, according to the portal ‘Don Balon’, the Catalans are willing to throw the house out the window. Of course, with a view to the 2022 summer transfer market.
As indicated by the ‘Transfermarkt’ portal, the Norwegian footballer is valued at 130 million euros, a figure that Barcelona believes they will ask for from Borussia Dortmund. Although Barça’s economy has hit rock bottom, Laporta and the rest of the managers estimate that they could pay to get the Nordic’s services.
To begin with, the Catalan club would have to sell a couple of players with the highest salary in the club in order not to exceed the salary mass and, above all, not to infringe the rules of LaLiga’s ‘Financial Fair Play’, the same one that has prevented that Lionel Messi is still dressed as a Barça player.
Always according to the aforementioned source, in Barcelona they assume that it will not be possible to sign Haaland before 2022. In the BVB they have already warned that the sale of Erling is not in the plans of the current summer market. Thus the things, it only remains to go for his signing in the middle of next year.
“There have been many rumors, many conversations, but internally we have always been clear with Erling, with his father and with Mino Raiola. Therefore, we have always been very calm. Haaland is here, you see it, he is very motivated, very committed and wants to have a great season at Borussia Dortmund ”, Sebastian Kehl, former BVB footballer and current director of the same, said in statements to ‘Viaplay’.
Since his emergence in the major leagues in Europe, in addition to Barcelona, Haaland has sounded in clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester United and Bayern Munich. The summer market will be an unprecedented battle for the signing of the Nordic striker.
Barça in absolute crisis
In the economic line, which this year makes the arrival of Haaland or another world star impossible, the president of Barcelona reported on a gloomy outlook regarding the financial situation of the club, noting that the debt has increased to 1.35 billion euros.
Joan Laporta blamed the previous administration of Josep Bartomeu for the situation of the team that led to the departure of Lionel Messi. The Catalan lawyer also accused his predecessor of lying constantly and said that he and his board of directors must be held accountable.
Laporta stressed that the club recorded losses of 481 million euros and was left with a negative balance of 451 million euros, which makes negotiations with the players difficult.
