Barcelona presidential candidate, Joan Laporta have set his sight on Borussia Dortmund’s wonder kid, Erling Haalland as his first signing once he secure a place back in the Spanish club hot seat.
The Spanish Giant have been rocked with a lot of troubles in the past few months as Lionel Messi shock transfer request and Luis Suarez departure to Athletico Madrid saw Josep Bartomeu lost his place as the club President.
As the Spanish club set their sight on having another President that will be tasked with steering the ship, Joan Laporta have been tipped as the favorite.
Coming for his second term and this time as a Messiah, Joan Laporta is reportedly working on the signing of one of the best young players in the world, Erling Haaland (20).
According to reports, Laporta has been making use of his great relationship with Mino Raiola, the Norwegian’s agent, to secure the signing of Haaland.
The player has a verbal agreement with Borussia Dortmund to facilitate his departure at the end of this season, so the maneuver could be successful.
In principle, the signing would be around 75 million euros: a high amount, but an investment more than justified.
Barcelona have been having a mixed season as they currently lie in 13th position on the league table despite putting up impressive performance in the UEFA Champions League.
