Erling haaland will not be a player of Barça the next season. This is how he advanced it TV3, arguing the dismissal of the 20-year-old Norwegian striker due to his high cost and because this summer, given the economic situation that the club is going through, the priority investment is to extend the contract of Leo Messi, which expires next month.
Pending still to know the details of the economic audit about the real accounts of the club, Barça has already assumed that it will not be able to undertake an operation such as that of Haaland, As reported TV3. Sign the attacker from Borussia Dortmund, what adds up 39 goals Y 12 assists on 40 matches officials this season, it is unaffordable for Barça’s coffers in the short term, and that is something that the football area has already convinced itself of before the audit sees the light. Several weeks ago, the player’s father, Alf Inge, and the crack agent, Mino Raiola, they saw the president culé Joan Laporta in Barcelona hours before traveling to Madrid to also meet with interlocutors from Real.
The reality is, according to TV3, that Barça has given up on incorporating Haaland this summer because his main sporting and economic priority is to tie the extension of the contract of Messi. TV3 also contributed that convincing Messi will not happen with posh reinforcements, but with a more modest profile due to his condition of opportunity, such as Sergio Aguero or Memphis Depay, who would arrive with the freedom letter under their arms.
The hope, from the culé point of view, is that Haaland will continue one more year at Borussia Dortmund after the German club has secured its qualification for the next edition of the Champions League. Taking him out of Dortmund this summer would cost, just as a transfer, about 150 million euros, to which his file would have to be added. Perhaps in the summer of 2022, with a release clause of 75 million euros, his arrival could be considered, although the desire for clubs with the potential of Manchester City or PSG are an imminent threat.
