Erling Haaland to Real Madrid

Erling Haaland to Barcelona
Barcelona are intent on capturing the 21-year-old and Laporta has already held meetings with his agent, Mino Raiola, to lay the groundwork over a move in the summer. The question, however, remains whether the Catalan heavyweights can raise the necessary capital needed to pull off the signing given their current financial situation.
“Where do I see Haaland? If I had to bet right now, I would bet on an English team and in Spain of course FC Barcelona. If Mbappe comes to Real Madrid… Haaland wants to be the star. Playing alone is how he works best. With the quality that there is at Barcelona, it is an ideal team for him.”Pedro Bravo, an agent and the president of the Spanish Association of Footballers’ Agents (AEAF)
