Haaland on his way to Barcelona?

  • admin

Erling Haaland’s rapid rise to stardom has been one of the highlights in the world of football, the previous year. Borussia Dortmund got hold of the 20-year-old in the winter transfer window of last year after his impressive outings with RB Salzburg, fending off interest from other big European clubs.
Haaland continued his goal scoring heroics with Borussia Dortmund and has established himself as one of the most lethal finishers of Europe. He has already shattered several records and is showing no signs of stopping it anytime soon.
The rumors with the Blaugrana side started gaining pace after the Spanish reporter Oriol Domenech reported that the Italian super-agent Mino Raiola is trying hard to secure a move to Barcelona for his client. Barcelona hasn’t replaced Luis Suarez yet and the failure of not having a target man has already started hurting. Griezmann has failed to create an impact in that position which deepened the problem. So, it is a well-known fact that Barcelona would be in the Market for a Striker in the summer.
The Catalan giants are not in the best of their form recently. With a new president and a new manager, they are hoping to clear the negative air around the club and in putting the club back to where it belongs.
FC Barcelona are currently the frontrunners as the other clubs linked with him have reportedly cooled down their interest. Manchester United have a strained relationship with the player’s agent and Real Madrid seems to be going all-in for Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
The real problem for the Catalan Giants would be to arrange the funds for the transfer as Barcelona are in a dire financial situation. If Lionel Messi is to leave the club finally, they would clear a huge amount from the wages, or else they would have to depend on other player sales.
The Norwegian International’s release clause of £65 million will only be activated in the summer of 2022. Dortmund would be able to sell for a much bigger amount if he is to be sold in the coming summer window. The transfer to Barcelona would definitely help Haaland, as he would have a much bigger stage to showcase his potential and create a legacy.
