Erling Haaland is currently the hottest prospect in European football alongside Kylian Mbappe. However, whereas Mbappe has not yet decided on leaving his current club, Haaland is determined to find the best club for his future. His father has been on a tour around Spain and England along with super-agent, Mino Raiola, and has been negotiating with the elite clubs of Europe. Barcelona are one of the clubs which Haaland is seriously considering; however, Borussia Dortmund’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, wants to keep the super striker with Dortmund and has claimed to know where the player will end up next season.

The 20-year-old striker, has openly shown his wishes to join one of Europe’s biggest teams however, Dortmund are keen on keeping him.

Recent comments from Watzke implies that he is confident that he can get Haaland to stay. In an interview with the BBC he said,

"“the only way is to look where Haaland will play after 1 September. I think I know where he’s going to play, but that’s all I have to say,”Source Mundo Deportivo"

Haaland is probably the best striker in the world currently after Robert Lewandowski however he has not even entered his prime yet and with a little bit of guidance and training, he could become a world-class player and even win multiple Ballon d’Ors. That is the reason why Joan Laporta is trying his very best to bring him to the Catalan side.

He would be a perfect replacement for Luis Suarez and he would surely thrive under the guidance of the best player in the world, Lionel Messi. Should he end up in Barcelona next season, it would be a miracle however, Laporta is known for making such miracles come true and we cannot write the possibility of Haaland joining Barca just yet.
