TOP STORY: Barca continues to view Haaland as a viable option.
Barcelona are contemplating a bid for Erling Haaland next summer, despite their financial difficulties, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The 21-year-old has a £75 million release clause in his contract that expires in the summer. The article says that the price is doable for the club, but the larger problem is the player’s salary demands.
Barca feel they have a chance to sign the striker, owing to his and his agent’s eagerness to visit the Camp Nou last year, despite the forward’s entourage making numerous visits to other European teams.
Barcelona is said to have an additional €20 million to spend on recruitment in January, but they may have to hang on to that money in order to sign Haaland in the summer.
Mino Raiola, the player’s agent, is likely to want €20 million per year for Haaland’s contract, a demand that they may struggle to fulfill given the original release clause.
The Norway international joined Borussia Dortmund from FC Salzburg in 2020 and has established himself as a deadly striker in the Bundesliga. He has seven goals and four assists in five games this season, giving him a total of 47 goals in 48 competitive appearances for the club.
