Recently, the president of the Barcelona, Joan Laporta and the representative of Erling haaland, Mino Raiola, met to talk about the future of the forward Borussia Dortmund. At the meeting, the boss of the Catalans made it clear to the Italian agent the firm interest of the Barcelona club for his client in the face of the 2022 summer transfer market. However, according to the Catalan press, the name of the Nordic scorer was not the only one on the table.
Joan Laporta also asked Mino Raiola about the situation of three of his players who end their contract in mid-2022. Given the economic crisis of the Catalans, there is no other formula than to sign players who do not have a starting price, but with a good line-up in the pass market.
Paul Pogba. The French footballer is one of the most desired in the transfer market. His continuity at Manchester United, except for one miracle, is ruled out, which is why Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG are following in his footsteps. The friendship between Laporta and Raiola could end up pushing the Frenchman to the Camp Nou. The problem for the Catalans are the more than 10 million euros that he earns per season.
Xavi Simons (Midfielder / 18 years old). Almost three years after leaving the quarries of Barcelona, the young Dutch midfielder wants to go back to dressing up as a Barça player after an unfortunate step by PSG. In the player’s closest circle they believe that Xavi Hernández could give him the opportunities that he does not receive from Mauricio Pochettino. He also international with the youth teams of Countries would not be for the work of renewing with Paris Saint-Germain.
Noussair Mazraoui (Defender / 24 years old). Like Paul Pogba and Xavi Simons, the Moroccan nationalized Dutch footballer has only a few months’ contract with Ajax. He plays as a right-back and at Camp Nou they believe that he is the ideal man to reinforce a position that has brought several headaches to Barcelona since the departure of Dani Alves.
The president promised reinforcements
The president of the institution clarified that the entity works to strengthen itself in January, which is why it has asked for unity in the stands of the Camp Nou.
“I share our disappointment with the Champions League tie. We all agree that we will strengthen the first team ”, assured the president. He also recognized that it will not be easy to add players in the next market. In fact, footballers will have to come out so that the Blaugranas can sign and thus adjust to the fair play financial.
“The problem is that we have very high legacy contracts that do not give us a salary margin. We are looking for the formula to improve the team this winter. We are working to achieve it. And we will achieve it “added the president.
