Barcelona’s pursuit of Erling Haaland is no retired secret. The 21yrs-old has been on the top of the summer transfer wishlist for the Catalan titans.
But the finances involved and the competition from clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester City had putatively seen the Blaugrana fall behind in the race to subscribe the Norwegian transnational.
Still, as per a fresh update from LaTdT (h/ t Miquel Blazquez), Barcelona still have some expedients of subscribing Haaland. It’s claimed that the Borussia Dortmund striker communicated the Blaugrana just after their stunning triumph over Real Madrid in El Clasico last month.
The former Red Bull Salzburg hitman is believed to be induced by the design Xavi Hernandez is erecting at Camp Nou, which could give Barça an advantage in pursuit of the forward.
Fabrizio Romano reported lately that Haaland is yet to make a decision on his future. The Italian transfer expert also added that the fiscal aspects would not be a major factor in the Dortmund ace’s final decision. Rather, the sporting design and the director in place would play a big part.
It’s commodity that has been in the choice of clubs he has made in the history, having turned down Juventus for Salzburg and also rejected Manchester United to subscribe for Borussia Dortmund.
While Barcelona are also negotiating with Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich, Haaland remains the top precedence. The 21- time-old is anticipated to make a decision on his future this month, which the Catalans are staying on before conniving out their coming move.
But, if the claims from LaTdT about Haaland reaching out to the club after the thrashing allocate out to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu are true indeed, it can be perceived as a boost for Barça’s expedients of subscribing the Borussia Dortmund megastar in the summer.
