In recent days, Erling Haaland has once again sounded strong in the orbit of FC Barcelona. After the meeting between the president Joan Laporta and the Italian agent Mino Raiola in Turin, during the delivery of the Golden Boy to Pedri, the signing of the Borussia Dortmund striker, for the summer market next year, becomes more and more possible. . However, from the environment of the Nordic scorer they make clear the conditions to sign for the Catalans in the next window of passes. According to the Catalan newspaper Sport, one of them does not have to do with money, but with the sports project that they offer him in Les Corts.
It is true, a great economic offer from Barcelona to Erling Haaland could tip the balance in favor of the Catalans. However, according to the aforementioned source, the 21-year-old Nordic attacker seems to be more focused on sports than on the question of money. Along these lines, the former Salzburg footballer wants to play the next Champions League.
With Dortmund, Haaland has already been left out of the last 16 of this Champions League and does not want to be absent from next year’s competition. It is for that reason that the Nordic will ensure that Barcelona play in Europe before dressing as a Barça player in 2022-23.
To date, Xavi Hernández’s team is five points behind LaLiga’s fourth place for qualifying for the Champions League. The situation of the culés is so critical that they cannot even take for granted their presence in the next competition organized by UEFA.
Distance from Real Madrid
In the line of the future of Haaland, Central Defense, half a supporter of Real Madrid, reports that Carlo Ancelotti does not wish the arrival of Haaland. In fact, if it were for the former Everton and Bayern Munich manager, I would not sign the Norwegian in the summer transfer market for two reasons.
The first obeys Kylian Mbappé. Ancelotti estimates, according to the aforementioned source, that with the imminent signing of the French forward there is no longer a need to reinforce the attack with another star of the stature of Haaland. Instead, the coach would like hires for Real Madrid’s midfield.
The other reason is the distribution of minutes. With Mbappé, Benzema and Vinicius Junior in attack, it would be a headache for the Italian DT to give all the forwards playing time. In addition, it could create an unfavorable climate for the ambitions of the manager and the club.
