The Erling Haaland to Barcelona saga continues with new rumors confirming the fact that Joan Laporta is one hundred percent ready to go all-in for the striker. It has been Laporta’s dream since the election days to sign Haaland. Back when he was running for the presidency, he mentioned two things, getting Haaland and keeping Lionel Messi at the club. He failed to keep Messi at the club due to unforeseeable circumstances. The La Liga salary cap was implemented after his election and with the new rules and regulations, he had no chances of extending Mess’s contract.
However, since he failed to keep one of his promises, he is making sure that he fulfills the second one. While Barca is in a very unstable financial position, the one thing that the club still has is its heritage. Barca is one of the two clubs where almost every player wants to play and even during such a crisis, it is still one of the clubs which can change a player’s life. To play for Barca or Real Madrid is an honor and Haaland himself has acknowledged that. He has stated that he wants to play for a La Liga side and that the Premier League is not his main objective.
Barcelona president is serious about signing Erling Haaland
Laporta is also talking with Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola regularly in order to make sure that the deal goes their way. Apart from that, Barca enthusiast, Reshad Rahman has tweeted that Laporta is hell-bent on getting Haaland. It is the goal for the summer to get the striker at their club even if it means that the Catalans will have to spend a lot of the money that was meant for the Project Espai. The Catalans need a striker and Laporta will make sure that they get the best one on the planet.
